Happy NFL Draft!

Although it's only day one of three, and there isn't really a season (sort of), I'm still excited for the NFL draft to begin tonight. My team - the Bengals - are picking fourth. I hate being a Bengals fan, but I was born into it. It's the only non-NY team I follow, as my other allegiances are to the Yankees, Knicks, and NY Rangers. And the Liberty. Just kidding.

Anyhow, my money is on the Bengs picking WR AJ Green from Georgia, although who knows, they may trade down to try and grab WR Julio Jones AND a QB like Andy Dalton. They had a solid draft last year, picking up Jermaine Gresham, Carlos Dunlap, and Jordan Shipley among others. Although I don't collect football cards, I grabbed this Dunlap rookie for like .25 as part of a SportLots order. It's always weird to see players from another sport in the same card design used for the baseball set.


  1. The Bengals will either take Green or Newton (whichever Carolina doesn't take). Although don't discount them trading up to get Newton at #1 and send Carson packing.

  2. Good luck to your guys this weekend--I can't hate a team that has three Michigan players, even if that team's unfortunate enough to be located in Ohio! I definitely agree that they're going to pick up Palmer's replacement, either in the draft or via free agency, but that's good--they'll finally take another stab at a QB that can get them over the hump.
