Yes, more sports, sue me. The NFL Draft was this past weekend. Almost all of you, in the United States at least, know that JaMarcus Russell was taken first by the Raiders, poor him. And some of you know about Ramzee Robinson, Mr Irrelevant, the final pick taken. He gets a free trip to the closest Disney World to his home. But, who gives the rest of them some recognition. Well, I do in this list, along with the 12 other guys picked before him.
1.Clark Harris TE Rutgers (never heard of him) taken by Green Bay
2.Jason Snelling FB University of Virginia (yep never heard of him) taken by Atlanta
3.Marcus Hamilton CB UVA (yes I have heard of him, but I think I saw him intercept a pass against Duke, and I could probably do that) taken by Tampa Bay
4.Ken Darby FB Alabama (didn't he sing the song "Wishing Well"?) taken by Tampa Bay
5.Mike Elgin C Iowa (yep never heard of him, but most people don't know offensive lineman) taken by New England
6.Keith Jackson DT Alabama (I know Wooah Nelly Keith Jackson) by St Louis
7.Derek Stanley WR Wisconsin Whitewater (I never even heard of the school) taken by St Louis
8.Ahmad Bradshaw RB Marshall (Yeaaa!!! I have heard of him) taken by the Giants
9.Chad Nkang S Elon (Elon plays football?) taken by Jacksonville
10.Andrew Carnahan OT Arizona State (Hey, I have seen him play football in person) taken by Jacksonville
11.Nedu Nduwke S Notre Dame (I can't even pronounce his name) taken by Cincinnati
12.Jonathan Holland WR La Tech (Im not even sure Wordnerd knows this one) taken by Oakland
13.Ramzee Robinson CB Alabama (Mr Irrelevant!) taken by Detroit
I know you feel more informed now
