Live from my desk I’ll be giving you my expert analysis and reaction pick-by-pick for the 1st round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Joining me today will be Manti Te’o's ex-girlfriend, Lennay Kekua
I posted my thoughts last year in my Live 2012 NFL Draft 1st Round Commentary piece, and as you can see I pretty much nailed it. I don’t watch a ton of college football, but I do watch a lot of mix-tapes on YouTube and know talent when I see it. I predicted Brandon Weeden would take over the starting QB job in Cleveland, and hinted that Doug Martin would eventually be the man in Tampa Bay. While it seems I have the ability to predict the future, I admit that I’m more Miss Cleo than Nostradamus.
7:00PM- We’re an hour away from the NFL draft and I’m already sick of Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. McShay is just way too smug, and Mel Kiper Jr’s hair has been out of control for the better part of 3 decades. McShay is that guy in your fantasy football league that tells you he’s going to win it

YouTube We can almost rejoice. Only a few more days and we will be freed of Mel Kiper, Jr. for another six (or more) months. But while he’s still relevant, comedian Frank Caliendo took his best swing at a Kiper impression. He nailed it.
Impressionist Frank Caliendo nails his impersonation of NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr.

In a pre-taped segment that aired on ESPN before the NFL draft, comedian Frank Caliendo broke out his impression of NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., and he absolutely nailed it.
