Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

The first round of the NFL draft was last night. It is a fascinating event.

Teams try to draft the best player.  But who is the best player? The best player for one team may not be the best for another. Each team has a vision. A strategy. Players need to fit into the right slot.  A great quarterback may go to a team with no offensive line. And people will wonder why he struggles.

I think the teams that do best are those that know what they are. What they are trying to achieve. And they pick based on their scheme.

Pretty much like credit unions and trade associations, I would think.

Now, on to this week's reading pile!
