I'm following today's draft action over the Internet at Rivals.com, and about ten minutes ago I thought I thought the Green Bay Packers had made without a doubt the greatest selection of the day.
For about three minutes, Rivals had USC's John David Booty listed as the Packers' first pick of the fifth round, which would have been amazing because it would have meant that they took TWO quarterbacks in the first five rounds. Aaron Rodgers, we believe in you.
Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be. The Packers limited Rodgers' competition to Louisville's Brian Brohm, their second round pick. Much a pity.
UPDATE: As noted by anonymous in the comments, "This just happened." The Packers took LSU quarterback Matt Flynn with the second pick of the seventh round. Unbelievable.
