32 young men will walk the stage and give Roger Goodell an awkward hug Thursday night. Crazy things happen during the NFL Draft. You never know what is going to happen except for the fact the Jets fans will hate their picks and BOOOO everything!
Things to watch for:
- Will the #1 overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs be Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel or Central Michigan's Eric Fisher?
- How high will Dee Milliner go?
- Are any of these QBs worthy of a first round pick? And how desperate do you have to be to pick Geno Smith with a first round pick?
- Who will trade up and did they give up too much?
- Who will make the biggest blunder?
- Who gets the biggest steal?
- Who is the Honey Badger think he is fooling?
