Deion Sanders further cemented his point about where two of his stars might end up in the 2025 NFL Draft. If the Colorado Buffaloes coach has it his way, Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter will go to an NFL home by choice. Sanders' latest comments come a week after he advised against former USC quarterback Caleb Williams going to the Chicago Bears, due the 'Windy City' being a cold weather climate


"All this is subjective because I know where I kind of want them to go," Sanders said during the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast. "And let's not forget Shilo (Sanders)... But I know where I want them to go. There's certain cities where it ain't going to happen. It's going to be an "Eli" (Manning). We ain't doing that."


Sanders went on to say his youngest son and Hunter would go within the "top four" in next year's draft order.

Coach Prime makes a reference to Archie Manning putting his foot down in 2004 after the San Diego Chargers drafted the future Hall-of-Famer No. 1 overall and forced a trade with the New York Giants. It's no different than John Elway never playing for the Baltimore Colts. The only exception to all of this is that Sanders knows who he's dealing with and has decades of background knowledge. He's not wrong either. 


Not every NFL franchise is working in the best interest of the players who make them money. In the case of SS2 and Saucy-T, these are two generational talents who will likely change the future of a franchise. Hunter could be the first player in NFL history to play on both sides of the ball. The former five-star was thrilling to watch as one of the most electrifying players in recent memory.
