Favorite Draft Moments.

This topic popped up on Facebook & was funny as hell, so I thought I'd bring it here.

To start things off...

When we slipped by the Vikings to grab Jordan Gross. I don't know if he was one of Minnesota's targets, but the announcers were hilarious. I was expecting one of them to just stand up & yell "seriously! Vikingswhatthefug!?!?"

The New York Jests.  Their entire existence is a draft laughingstock.

LOL! One of my best friends is a Jets fan & to this day when he hears something that makes no sense he says "Dan Ma... wait, who?"

Honestly it was when the Falcons gave away a king's ransom to move up and acquire Julio Jones.  

 

I was like "Can you believe these idiots?"

The Raiders picking DHB was quite hilarious for me.

Keyshawn raving about being Jarrett's mentor in Carolina then getting cut like the next day.

As for favorite though, def Star sliding right into our laps.

The Patriots trading ahead of us to take Laurence Maroney.

 

Word was we wanted Maroney.  Got DeAngelo Williams instead.

 

For whatever you think of Williams now, that story definitely worked out in our favor.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
