It took two days, seven rounds and more than two hundred picks, but every player selected in the first round of the 2007 Sports Bloggers Mock Draft has finally been chosen by an NFL team.
The last man off the board was Florida LB Brandon Siler, originally tabbed by Kissing Suzy Kolber's Monday Morning Punter with New England's second first round pick, the 28th overall selection. The Patriots traded that draft choice to San Francisco, however, and Siler proceeded to be Amobi Okoye-ed by the rest of the league, sliding 212 slots before the Chargers snagged him at 240.
It might be considered acceptable at this point to poke a little fun at MMP for the disastrous pick, but I'm not going to stoop to that level for one very good reason: I'm mildly terrified of Kissing Suzy Kolber and the things of which they are capable. Rag on MMP today, find Barbaro's brother's head in my bed tomorrow? Not out of the question. So let's just limit our fun-poking to the moderately humorous title, okay?
Brandon Siler is the Sports Bloggers Mock Mr. Irrelevant (no, not that one), but for those who care about such things, the actual Mr. Irrelevant was Alabama CB Ramzee Robinson, taken by the Detroit Lions with the 255th and final pick. He will now attempt to live up to the lofty standards of Jim Finn, Marty Moore, and Bill Kenney.
