Auburn football: Anthony Schwartz slighted by Pat McAfee “4×100” snub

Pat McAfee forgot a certain former Auburn football star nicknamed “the Flash” when selecting the prospective members of his hypothetical NFL 4×100 to determine who the fastest player in professional football.

Anthony Schwartz noticed.

The former Jarrett Stidham/Bo Nix target realized his NFL dream this past Friday when he was selected on night two of the 2021 NFL Draft. To be fair to McAfee, an accomplished NFL punter, he likely was thinking about those who’ve been on the field for an NFL snap when coming up with his 4×100 decathlon squad.

Schwartz shared his objection on his verified Twitter page:

Taken with the 91st pick in the draft, Schwartz now joins the Cleveland Browns in his first NFL stop. Cleveland made the postseason for the first time in 19 years this past season off the strength of QB Baker Mayfield and a backfield tandem of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.

With Schwartz now in tow, the Browns feature one of the most tantalizing WR rooms in the NFL. Odell Beckham is among the league’s prominent X receivers, while Jarvis Landry and Donovan Peoples-Jones are both capable of tormenting secondary’s as well.

Out of the slot, Rashard Higgins profiles as a threat, but he will now be pushed by Schwartz at the position. The former Tiger has the potential to be a breakout fantasy football candidate due to his ability to accumulate YAC, but Higgins is the biggest threat to his breakout due to his own end zone tendencies.

No matter what happens in year one, there is no doubt that McAfee, the multi-talented ex-NFLer currently serving as the color commentator of WWE’s Smackdown and a former NXT superstar as well, forgot one of the fastest men now at the professional level.

It’s up to the former Auburn football WR star Schwartz to make sure no one forgets to include him in their speed superlatives again.
