One of my favorite nights of the year is upon us – first round coverage of the NFL draft. Although we will have to wait until the weekend to hear Nate Irving’s name called, there’s still plenty of interesting things going on. We’ve been talking about the Panthers’ likely (and stupid) decision to draft Cam Newton here. My co-favorite team – how much fun was last fall/winter for me, cheering for easily the two worst teams in pro football – is on the clock next. Not much suspense there, either – unless the Panthers sober up and take him first, Alabama’s Marcell Dareus will be the second player chosen and hopefully lead the next “Orange Crush.”
This might be the last NFL excitement for quite some time…so enjoy it while you can.
