I'm trying to decide what the Draft should be compared to. Watching it all is nearly impossible. Watching it all on ESPN IS absolutely impossible. I mean, we're all fans, we all say stupid stuff about our teams and coaches and GM's right? So how come Mel and Boomer and the gang get paid big time cash to say things that we all say over a beer at the bar every Friday night? It's not like they class it up or break down film. But anyway, I don't really know why I'm ranting about the ESPN guys, I was watching the Draft on the NFL network.
I don't know what it says about this country of ours that there needs to be two, count 'em two, stations broadcasting the flipping draft. I just know it's necessary. ESPN is such a parody of itself nowadays that they probably should be forced to just follow regional sports with minimal interest. Y'know, like the NBA.
Mike Mayock, Mooch, Marshall Faulk and Rich Eisen broke down the draft with quite a bit of the normal "smoke up the ass" that ESPN employs. But they also broke down on film why a guy was good at certain things. Like mentioning that our first round pick still had both arms despite tearing his biceps. Then, next thing you know there he is on screen with both arms and everything.
I'll be breaking down the picks as we go along here, we have the time, but like most people I'm confused and don't know what we've got. I wouldn't have put DT as a primary position of need but I can't really complain about trying to improve the defense. The most important thing to remember is that with the draft there's no telling what you're going to get. Just because I didn't hear of our 1st pick BEFORE the draft doesn't mean he won't bring anything to the table.
I will say this though, I'm not bummed out on losing Marshawn Lynch after seeing that photo of him on the NFL Network. I mean, wow. I wasn't sure if Buffalo had drafted Lynch or Tyrone Biggums from Chappelle's show.
