The County Championship returns on Thursday so how are the sides in Group 3 shaping up? GLAMORGAN Overseas players: Marnus Labuschagne (Australia, from May), Michael Neser (Australia, from May), Andrew Balbirnie (Ireland, April), Colin Ingram (South Africa, potential cover for Labuschagne) Ins: James Weighell (Durham) Outs: Marchant de Lange (Somerset), Graham Wagg, Kieran Bull, Connor Brown, Owen Morgan (all released), Craig Meschede (retired) Story of last season: Glamorgan were one of four sides to go winless in the Bob Willis Trophy, losing two and drawing three of their five games as they finished at the foot of the Central Group.

It's been a very long time since a rising NFL tight end has generated the sort of hype that Florida Gators tight end Kyle Pitts has ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. Pitts, a Unanimous All-American and the winner of the John Mackey Award in 2020, has been hailed as a generational tight end talent and seems like a sure-thing to be a Top 10 pick in the coming Draft. And part of the hype surrounding him has been how he compares to some of the most-exceptional tight ends to ever play the professional game. During an appearance on ESPN's Keyshawn, JWill and Zubin , Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher gave a glowing assessment of Kyle Pitts, comparing him to Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow given how he stands to evolve the tight end position forward in a similar way to Winslow.
