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.
