    The 2018 NFL Draft appeared to be a hit for some teams, but for others, a bust. The Buffalo Bills had some holes to fill during the draft and as seen in past years, teams can build through the draft.

    Like many other DC Universe fans, I was exhilarated at the notion of a Wonder Woman movie, especially after Diana’s brief appearance in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.
