This year's NFL draft featured many players with unique names. My four favorites:
1. Amobi Okoye (Round 1, Pick 10): It'd be funnier if his name was Muslim Okoye, but still a great name. No relation to Christian Okoye, incidentally.
2. Jermon Bushrod (Round 4, Pick 126): Yes, I have the maturity of an adolescent.
3. C.J. Ah You (Round 7, Pick 239): You have to wonder exactly how this played out behind the scenes:
Gene Washington: Mr. Levy, we need your pick.I know that's not really funny, but thanks for laughing anyway.
Marv Levy: We'll take...Ah You.
Gene Washington: Mr. Levy, you can't select me, I'm 60 years old.
Marv Levy: No. We want Ah You, from Oklahoma.
Gene Washington: I'm from Alabama.
Marv Levy: ...
4. Ahmad Bradshaw (Round 7, Pick 250): Anyone else imagining the love child of Ahmad Rashad and Terry Bradshaw?
