NFL Draft Open Thread

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

Come get your football fix as we take in one of the more absurd events in sports.

TREMENDOUS UPSIDE.

LENTH.

EXPLODABILITY.

CHARACTER ISSUES.

BURST.

Prepare for three straight days of hearing all the familiar buzzwords rehashed over and over by men with elaborate haircuts and markers. The draft is a circus where octogenarians who never played football ignore the advice of their coaches and select players based on three hundredths of a second on a 40 time. So why is it so hard to resist watching? Coach Sumlin explains:

There are the highlights, and seeing your favorite players dressed awkwardly in suits, and the smug satisfaction derived from knowing you probably saw a "relatively unknown" player make plays in about 45 games over the past half-decade. So kick off your footwear, pull up a place on the sofa, and get that mute button ready as we discuss the draft pick-by-pick as it happens.

Enjoy!
