"With the 31st pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select Aaron Williams from the University of Texas."
If anyone can tell me why Roger Goodell decided to continue the year-old tradition of holding the first round of the NFL draft on a Thursday night, we'll send you a signature Mel Kiper Nerf Hair Helmet to throw at your TV when your preferred franchise drafts a player in the third round that would have been available in the sixth.
This is where srr50 would quote some seemingly impressive stats about Thursday prime time ratings, but the NFL fucked up a perfectly good thing here. For most households on draft weekend, it was perfectly alright for the male occupants to lie around on the couch for 48 hours like
HenryJames a sloth with a remote, enough beer to supply the Sig Ep house after finals, and a tray table featuring transfatty snacks in all shapes and sizes. In my household, this time of the year is called Fall.
So with the 2011 NFL draft kicking off tonight, here is your list of mock drafts to rightfully mock as you see fit.
There seems to be a consensus on the first four picks until you get to the Cardinals in the fifth slot:
1. Carolina Panthers - Cam Newton
2. Denver Broncos - Marcel Dareus
3. Buffalo Bills - Von Miller
4. Cincinnatti Bengals - A.J. Green
5. Arizona Cardinals - Blaine Gabbert / Aldon Smith / Patrick Peterson / Julio Jones
I think Jimmy Smith would be a perfect fit in the City Only Brothers Can Love.
Will the Titans take a QB to fill Vince's Void?
Give us your list of overrateds, those who you think might go earlier than expected, and what's on the liquid/solid menu for tonight.
Texans and Cowboys fans, you might want to start drinking now.
