NFL Mock Draft
WITH THE Super Bowl in the rearview mirror, it's time to look ahead to the biggest event of the NFL off-season: the draft. Two things are becoming clear as April 27 approaches: There is an abundance of defensive talent available (including Reuben Foster, middle, and Jamal Adams, far right); and at least two quarterbacks should be taken early in Round 1, with debates over those selections likely to rage throughout the spring. Will defensive end Myles Garrett(above) go No. 1? Will the Browns finally find their QB of the future (perhaps Mitch Trubisky, far left), with one of their two first-round picks? How will teams like the Titans and Buccaneers, which barely missed out on the playoffs this season, bolster their rosters? Go to SI.com/nfl on Thursday to check out Chris Burke's latest NFL mock draft for the first three rounds.
LATELY IT SEEMS as if the NBA is being taken over by young, 7-foot, do-it-all unicorns like Joel Embiid, Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis. Now you can add Nuggets forward Nikola Jokic to that growing list. The 21-year-old Serbian phenom has a game that is unlike any you've seen before. He's quietly becoming one of the league's best players—and he's putting Denver in the running for the Western Conference's eighth and final playoff spot.
