I like quick, fast-paced stories that break and are reacted to and then they are over. Which is why it’s hard to explain why golf is one of my favorite sports to watch. That said, there are some stories that just seem to go on forever. I want answers and all I get is speculation.
The king of this is The King, also known as the NFL. The draft is coming up which means we’ve been subjected to weeks of speculation. It seems like the NFL Combine was a year ago, Since then, apparently, scouts have actually resorted to watching tape of games, which is why Tim Tebow’s draft status is moving up.
Still, it is such a long process because that is what the NFL likes. It likes Mel Kiper changing his mind 43 times in 43 days. It likes draft stocks rising and falling even though nothing has happened. So what if the time between the last college game and the draft takes longer than Oregon’s search for a basketball coach.
You’re talking about it.
It’s the Roy Kramer theory. He always believed in the BCS whether it was right or wrong because we were talking about it.
That said, here’s what I think about the Gators who will be selected. I know, I wrote earlier where I thought they would go, but so much has changed (not). Hey, if these clowns can change their minds daily.
Tim Tebow: I’ve come around to believing he’ll go in the first round. Too many paranoid coaches who are afraid they’ll pass on a star.
Maurkice Pouncey: First round, no doubt. They see that he’s a baller.
Major Wright: Second round. I don’t get it. His ball awareness is terrible. But the NFL guys like him.
Aaron Hernandez: Third round. Tight ends aren’t hard to find.
Carlos Dunlap: Third round. Sliding, sliding.
Joe Haden: First round. Despite slow time in Indy, he can play.
Jermaine Cunningham: Fifth round.
Riley Cooper: Fourth round. Will be a great gunner.
Brandon Spikes: Fourth round. A steal.
Seventh round or undrafted: Brandon James, Ryan Stamper, David Nelson. Good guys all and they will get a chance.
