Draft Value

The NFL draft is this weekend, and yes, while it's a lot of hype over something that often amounts to a crap shoot. And no, this is not a football post, I'm keeping the old Red Bull straight-up geeky. So here's something that may be of interest to people who like this kind of over-analytical stuff: the NFL draft value chart. It's a chart that the NFL teams use to determine the approximate value of a draft slot, and according to the chart, the number one overall is almost as much as all five picks at the end of the first round. Considering Tom Brady was a sixth-round pick, you need a crystal ball to determine actual value of any of these picks, so what does this chart measure? Risk? Potential? Makes no sense to me.

Anyway, I may go to the draft just to get drunk with other Jets fans. It's either D'Brickashaw Ferguson or "Super" Mario Williams. We can't lose. Either way, we get a starter with an amusing name. What more can you want from a draft pick?

I guess it was a football post. Oh well.

How crazy is the Houston Texans GM - he took the DE as the 1st pick? Only time will tell if that was a crackhead move.
