Who Did We Draft Again?

Monday, April 30, 2007


There are always such great draft stories of teams picking players who've passed away and teams getting names wrong all the time. It's pretty bad when you don't know the school your first round pick attended though...

TODAY'S LAST word comes in a news release from the Chargers:

"The San Diego Chargers selected Auburn wide receiver Craig Davis … "

A little later the Chargers sent the following news release:

"The San Diego Chargers selected LSU wide receiver Craig Davis," and apologized for the mistake, although it's still unclear whether the team had any idea what it was doing.
The Chargers also traded up in the draft to get Safety Eric Wedge from UTEP.

(P.S.- I had no idea that Eric Weddle was a white dude until I looked on Chargers.com for the press release. White safeties ALWAYS work out in the NFL!)
