It is that time of year, folks. Spring is upon us, the football season is behind us. And a fresh, new season of hope is before us.
It is an annual ritual. One team’s fans celebrate their team’s ascent to the glory of a world championship, while fans of the other 31 teams try to figure out which player should be taken in the first round of the NFL Draft in order to catapult their team to the post-Super Bowl podium for the presentation of next year’s Lombardi trophy.
Ah. Spring. Hope. And the eternal spring of hope.
So, who will it be for your Dallas Cowboys? They hold the 14th pick in the 2012 NFL draft. Upon whom will they spend it? Well, I have gone searching for the answer.
First, I went to Confucius. Confucius say, “Better a Diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”
That somehow made sense to me, but did not answer the burning question. So, I sought the wisdom of five other philosophers and forecasters of all things football.
