NFL Draft Day 2 Recap: Winners & Some Perplexing Moves

Draft Day 2 RecapBy: Joshua Hayes @ EVRD Winners Cincinnati Bengals - Tee Higgins was selected 33th overall by the Cincinnati Bengals.  The Bengals knew talent would remain at wide receiver into day 2, and they drafted a strong downfield playmaker for new quarterback Joe Burrow with the selection of Tee Higgins of Clemson. Tee Higgins boasts elite body control in a 6’4” frame that creates a large target for quarterbacks. It would appear that Higgins is the succession plan for a post-A.J. Green Bengals receiving group. Getting talent like Higgins at the start of the second round is a...

NFL Draft Day 1 Recap: Winners & Team Outlooks

Draft Day 1 Recap - Winners and Team OutlooksBy: Joshua Hayes @EVRD  Winners Miami Dolphins Tua Tagovailoa was selected with the 5th overall pick by the Miami Dolphins. The tank for Tua is now complete, even after Miami won a few late season games last year that bumped them out of the range for the top 4 picks in the 2020 NFL Draft. Tua provides immense upside for a team that is hoping to build a strong offense. The lefty is an injury concern after having offseason hip surgery, but winning immediately will not be a concern with the young...

The Robins Part 4: Damian Wayne (EVRD ORIGINAL)

The Robins Part 4: Damian Wayne (EVRD ORIGINAL)

Damian Wayne is Batman’s biological (genetically engineered) son. They were not introduced to each other until the boy was 10 years old. Damian was raised by his mother Talia and grandfather Ra’s Al Ghul (leader of the League of Assassins). Given this upbringing Damian wasn’t trained to think or act like a Robin traditionally should. He was bred to kill (he was primarily bred to kill Batman, but that’s another story). Upon meeting his son, Batman decides to take him in for a few reasons. For starters, he see’s tremendous potential in Damian. His skills are far beyond that of...

The Robins Part 3: Tim Drake (EVRD ORIGINAL)

Tim Drake is probably the most level-headed and calm of all the Robins. While he possess the same tactical abilities as the others, what really sets him apart is his brain. With an IQ of 142, he is perhaps the most intelligent of all the Robins. Tim really shines by means of his technical savviness, having an incredible working knowledge of the technology at his disposal. He excels in all computer sciences and is a near unmatched hacker. Probably the best representation of his natural smarts comes from his introduction to comics. So here it is.... After the death of...

NBA Players & Their Superhero Counterparts: Kawhi is Martian Manhunter (EVRD Original)

Kawhi is human right? We’ve seen he has human parents? He definitely has an uncle, but I’m not sure Dennis is a human either. Kawhi is arguably the most uniquely talented player in the NBA and he talks about basketball with less enthusiasm than the lady at the DMV who told me where to get a replacement car title (long story). I love Kawhi’s game. He has Dirk’s flourish of midrange and technical footwork with the defensive ability of prime Scottie Pippen. He doesn’t trash talk, he calls out plays on defense. He  doesn’t scream after a bucket, he turns...
