Random Thoughts of over 12 hours of NFL Draft watching …

Yes, I spent the vast majority of this weekend watching the NFL Draft. The opportunity to drink beer and watch football before noon at this time of the year was too good to pass up. Some people consider this event vastly overrated, but yet this event gets bigger and bigger every year. The main reason for this is that football becomes more important each year while other sports become more niche. Anyway, here is what I was thinking during my comatose state of my couch …

* They need to find a replacement for Roger Goodell as “pick reader”: Maybe the new commissioner is a good one, but public speaking is not one of his strong suits. How about they get Deion Sanders or Chris Berman to read the picks? Hey, the NFL is an entertainment property, and thus you need to think of these things.

* The player who has taken the biggest fall over the last four months is not Troy Smith, it’s Chris Leak: Not only was the national championship quarterback not drafted, he signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent, where he gets to compete with blogsphere favorite Kyle Orton for a roster spot. I don’t know which is worse, this or hearing your home crowd cheer everytime you were taken out of the game for a quarterback who can’t throw (Tim Tebow). Poor kid.

* Almost every single team this year took almost all of its time allowed: This created the longest first round in NFL Draft history at over six hours. I have no idea why this was the case, but the NFL should try to speed things up in the future. For example, the league didn’t announce the Chicago Bears selection of Greg Olsen until almost ten minutes after ESPN showed the tight end in Miami with a Bears hat on. Something need to be done about this.

* The Brady Quinn hype was a creation of the media: The Notre Dame quarterback, who was expected to go in the first ten picks, shockingly fell down the board before Cleveland traded up to get him the in the second half of first round. While all of the television pundits were shocked that this happened, maybe they should not have been. Quinn was average at best this year in big games against Michigan, USC, and LSU and his raw skills were nothing compares to JaMarcus Russell’s.

* The Cam Cameron era in Miami is going to end badly: Ok, maybe the Dolphins didn’t want Brady Quinn with pick No. 9, but Ted Ginn? The most telling sign of this pick was when the cameras went to the Dolphins draft party and all the Dolphins’ head coach could talk about is how great a return guy Ginn was going to be. Hello, as the ninth pick in the draft, you better be much more that a return guy.

* Six teams are going to end up kicking themselves for passing on Adrian Peterson: Let’s face it, if Peterson does not break his collarbone, he’s a top-three selection. He has a legit chance to be a top-5 NFL running back. Now, if the Vikings could only get a quarterback.
