When I realized around 4 pm that Eric Fisher OT of Central Michigan was going to be the #1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, I declared this the dumbest draft ever; three hours before it even started. I was right.
Someone no one had heard of it or even cared about three months ago was about to come the NFL’s newest highly paid franchise player. Then it became the offensive linemen draft. HOW EXCITING! AND INTERESTING! Right now I’m going to find a crappy 2-star recruit starting for a middle tier MAC school and mock him first in my 2015 NFL mock draft. That way I’ll scoop everybody.
Maybe I’ll take Taylor Lewan and Jake Matthews in my 2014 NFL mock draft and move to #1 and #2. Of course, with all the blockers came all the defensive linemen too in the top ten. So it was the linemen draft; the big boy draft, the fat boy draft, the big uglies draft. Yawn.
As a former back/receiver I’ve never felt so oppressed in my life. Of course, even talking about high school football after age 20...
