Blogging through the NFL Draft

I might be able to live blog this, if I figure it out. Anyhow, it’s the 2007 NFL Draft. What is the NFL Draft, those of you hopping around on Facebook ask? It’s a 2-day period every spring where ESPN devotes about 12 hours of programming to speculation about which names the NFL Commissioner is going to pronounce next. In that context, it sounds about as exciting as the Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee. Except the Spelling Bee is actually exciting. It’s 11:38 a.m. right now, so I’m just going to write a few obvious things until 12. Well, other than Chris Mortensen needs a new mic, he has the I-should-be-in-a-Peanuts-cartoon voice.

First things:  The Raiders-who have the first pick-seem headed towards JaMarcus Russell, out of LSU. It seems like he’s been in the Bayou forever, and I don’t see his appeal as a QB. But hey, he could work out. Calvin Johnson-I don’t want to talk about the Orange Effect game-is seen by a lot of people as the Best Player Available. He’s been very good in college, so if he gets someone to THROW HIM THE BALL, he could be the next NFL great. That’s about it. Back in 15.
