There’s less margin of error, since you can’t look to overcome one bad choice by compensating for it with a high volume of better choices.
Jones then helped add two more for the Blue Jackets, giving him four goals — three of them game-winners — and three assists in his last three games. He set up Wennberg’s tip-in goal at 7:51 and scored his own at 14:03, his 14th this season. Jones’ 48 points are three short of the franchise record for a blueliner, set in 2013-14 by James Wisniewski.
I can do a USA tour, whether it’s Portland, Seattle, Chicago or wherever, and I’m not getting these crowds, Thompson said. But I’m taking a five-city tour in China and there’s thousands of people waiting to see me, and I can’t believe it. The hunger from these people just to see one of their favorite basketball players is so cool. Knowing I’m 7,000 miles away from home and I can just shake their hand or give them a smile and they freak out, it’s unbelievable.

With the first and fourth overall picks, the Browns still control the board, but Buffalo now has the 12th pick and the 22nd, the only other team with two picks in the opening frame, more than enough trade capital to move up higher into the first round for a quarterback.
Dealing Glenn also means there’s one less team looking for a left tackle on the free agent market. That’s either good news for the handful of squads still looking for veteran blind side help, and potentially bad news for players like Nate Solder or Chris Hubbard.
But after spending two years in that 3-4 under Pettine and replacement Ray Horton, the Browns moved to a 4-3 under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams last season.
Shelton is never going to rack up big stats, but he was an effective piece in a Browns run defense that quietly finished fourth against the run in DVOA in 2017.
Splitting out individual pieces of a run defense is nearly impossible, but during Shelton’s career in Cleveland, the Browns were far stouter with him on the field.
Cleveland allowed 3.9 yards per carry and 20.6 percent of rushes to turn into a first down or a touchdown with Shelton on the field.
With the former 12th overall pick off the field, the Browns allowed 4.7 yards per rush and a conversion 26.2 percent of the time.
