Deion Sanders ‘Ashamed’ of Every NFL Team Except for Patriots After Taking Look at Draft Results

Deion Sanders, the former NFL player and analyst for NFL Network, has recently expressed that he is “ashamed” of every NFL team except for the New England Patriots after viewing the results of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Sanders, who is known for his strong opinions and critiques of NFL teams and players, spoke out about the draft on his podcast, “21st and Prime,” where he admitted that he was disappointed with the overall performance of the league during the draft.

“I’m ashamed of every team in the NFL except for the New England Patriots, and I ain’t lying,” Sanders said on the podcast. “Everybody else needs to go back to the drawing board and start over because they suck at drafting.”

Sanders went on to specifically call out several teams for their poor draft choices, including the Atlanta Falcons for selecting Kyle Pitts at No. 4 instead of trading down and accumulating more picks, as well as the New York Giants for selecting Kadarius Toney in the first round.

Sanders also praised the Patriots for their draft strategy, saying that they “know what they’re doing” and that they “always make smart decisions.”

It’s no secret that Sanders has a soft spot for the Patriots, as he played for the team during the 2003-2004 season and won a Super Bowl with them. However, his comments about the other teams in the league have raised eyebrows and drawn criticism from those who feel that he is being too harsh.

Some have argued that it’s unfair to judge a team’s draft performance immediately after the draft, as it takes time to see how the players develop and pan out in the league. Others have pointed out that Sanders himself has been criticized in the past for his own draft choices while he was the head coach at Jackson State University.

Regardless of the backlash, Sanders stands by his opinion and continues to be a vocal critic of the NFL. Only time will tell if his assessment of the 2021 draft proves to be correct.
