The NFL has invited 9 players to Radio City Music Hall in New York City for this years Draft. They are: Baylor’s Jason Smith, Virginia’s Eugene Monroe, Ole Miss’s Michael Oher, Georgia’s Matthew Safford, Kansas State’s Josh Freeman, Wake Forest’s Aaron Curry, USC’s Brian Cushing, Texas Tech’s Douche Bag Extraordinaire Michael Crabtree, and Texas’s Brian Orakpo. All of these players are virtually guaranteed to go by the 15th pick or so … except Josh Freeman.
It is a real possibility that Freeman could fall past the 15th pick and treat us all to several of awkward “why are you still here” interviews with Erin Andrews. While I freely admit it is possible that Freeman goes in the first round because some scout convinced his organization not to actually watch any K-State game tapes, he shouldn’t. Well unless the general manager of the team that takes him is just dying to “spend more time with his family.”
So regardless if the NFL just wants fans to fondly recall their youth by playing which one of these things is not like the others (ie which one of these players is not ready to play in the NFL), or if they are just trying to recapture the broadcast gold of Aaron Rodgers in 2005 and Brady Quinn in 2007 slowing dying in front of America as all of the other invited players are taken far quicker. When you watch the draft on Saturday remember this incontrovertible scientific fact.
Kansas State Quarterback + NFL = Bust
