2019 Draft Recap

Royce Freeman, RB
2.01 (from Heavy Pistols via Marlon Mack & Sammy Watkins trade)
Cast away by the Nosebleeds in favor of Jordan Howard at the 2019 Keeper Ceremony, Royce is welcomed with open arms to the Horsemen. Phillip Lindsay proved to be a thorn in his side last year, but this year likely sees the carry distribution begin to lean more heavily in Freeman’s favor. There will be much joy to be had with a former Nosebleed breaking out as a member of the Horsemen.

Robby Anderson, WR
2.02 (from Bumpy’s Berries via Damien Williams trade)
A nogoodnick, the Horsemen are hoping Robby has left his checkered past behind and is ready to perform. The Jets offense should look a lot different in 2019, and Anderson should benefit from several new additions opening up the field for him.
Baker Mayfield, QB
2.06 (from Dangerous Angels via Phillip Lindsay trade)
Once hated by the Horsemen because of his college affiliation, peace has been made and Mayfield looks to bring some massive upside to the franchise with a plethora of options at his disposal. A breakout year for the young QB in 2019 could prove to be just what the Horsemen need to distance themselves from the competition.
Courtland Sutton, WR
2.08 (from Nosebleeds via 1/2 2019/2020 pick swap)
One of the prized rookie signings of Legs With Holes, Courtland emerged as the number one receiver on the Broncos only to get dropped back into the draft pool in favor of a running back that’s never actually played a regular season game. Joe Flacco isn’t much to write home about, but Sutton should lead the team in targets regardless.
Damien Harris, RB
Amid a conspiracy to hide the H page of running backs from the Horsemen, once the page was recovered management went off script and surprised the group by taking Damien Harris instead of the obvious choice of Darrell Henderson. While a potentially ill advised pick, Harris could prove to be an important part of the Patriots offense if Sony Michel’s knee continues to be troublesome.
David Njoku, TE
David finished as the TE10 last year and comes to the Horsemen to backup one of the top tight ends in the game in Zach Ertz. The Cleveland offense may not allow for much consistency at the position, but he should be relatively productive in a couple spot starts in 2019.


Adrian Peterson, RB
The former face of the Nosebleeds, he was released to free agency prior to 2018 keepers – only to regain relevance immediately upon the injury to Guice. The Nosebleeds would lose a keeper, the Horsemen would add Peterson, and then Peterson would be shipped off to the Aces for a 2nd round pick where he would be a regular starter. He now gets back into a Horseman jersey but likely won’t see much action as nothing more than a depth piece.
Justin Tucker, K
The franchise leading kicker by a massive margin (281 points and 29 starts), Justin Tucker returns to the Horsemen to widen the gap between him and Greg Zuerlein. Not only is he the leading kicker in the history of the Horsemen, but he’s also the 8th highest scoring player at any position and is set to pass up Alfred Morris in short order.
David Moore, WR
9.05 (from Straight Laced via Thomas/Diggs trade)
Black out zone was getting started at about this pick, but David Moore could prove to have significant upside with the absence of Doug Baldwin. This low volume passing attack likely makes him a potential cut as we approach the season.

Chase Edmonds, RB
At this point management was well into black out zone and probably only made this pick to handcuff one of the ultimate handcuffer’s starting running backs. It’s unlikely he’ll make the final roster without an injury to David Johnson in the preseason.
