Did you know that BYU has faced nine players who were the eventual first pick overall in the NFL draft? Five of the nine times, BYU played against the eventual first pick overall in their...
Kill the NFL DraftSince the birth of ESPN, interest in the NFL Draft has increased yearly. It has become a primetime event introducing the most promising College players to fans who have salivated over forty yard dash times and bench rep numbers for months. The first round of the draft can be exciting to College Football freaks and draftniks; but let me ask you this: How many casual...
