I am a fan of the Bears because my family loves them. I think we should draft a RB after trading away Jordan Howard.”

I followed Dak Prescott from Mississippi State to Dallas, and we need to address the secondary in the draft. I think we run a 4-2-5 so secondary is very important for that formation.”

— Reeves Wester (12)

I am a Packers fan because I think Aaron Rodgers is one of the greatest QBs of all time. In the draft, I think we need to go after a safety after losing Haha Clinton-Dix. We could also upgrade our front 7 with better linebackers and defensive linemen.”

— Saketh Jonnadula (12)

I started to cheer to the Chargers once I saw Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson. The biggest need for us is an inside linebacker. If we address it in the draft, I think we can make a further run in the playoffs.”

The reason I became a Colts fan is because my dad worked as an intern for them. Now my grandparents live right outside Indianapolis, and we go to at least one Colts game every year. In the upcoming draft, the Colts should go for depth at CB and LB, and potentially a WR to pair with TY Hilton.”

— Drew Runkel (12)

I became a fan [of the Patriots] because of my dad, and in the draft, I think we need a long-term successor to Brady and receiver depth. ”

I like Detriot because of my family being fans. They have a lot of needs to fill in the draft, but one of the more important ones is giving Stafford more talent on offense in WR.”

— Calvin Merkle (12)

In the 2008 Super Bowl, I watched the Giants play the Patriots and I vividly remember the helmet catch. Ever since then I’ve been a fan [of the Giants]. In the upcoming draft, I definitely think they need a new QB. Eli Manning was good but he is worn down.”
