2013 NFL Draft: The most boring draft ever, or just a lot of sandbagging?
The 2013 NFL draft has all the makings of a dud, folks. A serious, no-frills, bore-fest with absolutely no big-name players even worth watching squirm in the green rooms of Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
What a potential nightmare for Roger Goodell and the NFL brass.
Is this possible? Could pro football’s offseason centerpiece extravaganza fall flat on its face in front of millions? With the list of players that mock draft experts have slotted in the first round, an uneventful prime-time chess match is a definite reality.
It all boils down to hyperbole. There is no doubt supreme football talent coming out of college and looking to enter the NFL. There always is. What’s missing are the polarizing, media-generated sexy players — aka quarterbacks that littered the 2012 draft boards.
Although the mystery had been taken out of the first two picks last year, there was still electrifying speculation over what would follow. Even with those two predetermined choices, Robert Griffin III’s Superman socks were more newsworthy than anything coming in this year’s draft … save maybe when and where Manti Te’o, who went from perfect to borderline bizarre over a fake girlfriend controversy, will be drafted.
As mighty as the NFL is, it is hard to believe the 2013 draft will come and go without some shockers. After all, isn’t deceit part of the game? You know, sandbagging?
All the teams seem so unaffected by the fact that the best 10 players on the board are offensive linemen. I just don’t know if I’m buying or selling that.
We all know football. We know a team must have a strong offensive line to reach the higher pinnacles of the NFL. If this remains the case, and it will, we can just skip the first round and tune in for day two.
Everyone will have their lineman, so we can just move forward to the next rounds when teams can start grabbing possible superstar players who may be coming off injury or have questionable behavior issues. You know, castoffs with weak arms, slow 40’s, low Wonderlic scores, all that good stuff.
Let’s face it … that’s when the draft gets juicy.
