NFL Draft Day 2: Info & Plot Lines

Sunday, April 27, 2008

We're part of the way though Day 2 of the draft, so I'm a little late on this post, but I noticed some of you were commenting on the goings on so we'll add a spot for those. There are tons of notable players left in the draft (if I'm missing any let me know) and I've put together a small list to discuss along with the coverage details for ESPN and NFL-N.

Players available:

John David Booty (QB-USC), Erin Henderson (LB-MD), Andre Woodson (QB-KENT), Erik Ainge (QB-TENN), Steve Slaton (RB-WVU), Mike Hart (RB-MICH), Colt Brennan (QB-HAW), Owen Schmitt (FB-WVU), Geno Hayes (OLB-FSU), Dennis Dixon (QB-ORE)

ESPN – Day 2:

* Radio City Music Hall: Trey Wingo, Mel Kiper, Cris Carter, Ron Jaworski and Chris Mortensen
* Bristol: Tony Reali, Jeffri Chadiha, Smith, Charean Williams and Steve Wyche

NFL-N - Day 2:

* Radio City Music Hall: Rich Eisen, Mike Mayock, Charles Davis, and Jamie Dukes
* Studio: Michael Lombardi, Charley Casserly, and two randoms who I don't know names for.

The NFL-Network seems to be talking about every pick still while ESPN is going through previous picks and going back to talk about the last five picks or so every few minutes. Either is a good option today because of one simple reason.

No Chris Berman. Speaking of which.....does anyone have video of Berman talking about the deux, deux, duex's after mentioning Buffalo's game in Canada next year? Via Fanhouse....

"If anybody gets hurt, they can always take deux deux deuxs ... and you'd know that if you've watched YouTube the last couple months"
Yep. Just keep joking about smuggling drugs.

Michael Smith just said the NFL Draft is bigger than the Super Bowl. Maybe one day, if ESPN gets the rights, the Super Bowl will make it back to the top. What a douche.

Chris Mortensen has compared both Tom Zbikowski and Craig Steltz to John Lynch. Is this on the basis of their football abilities or their skin color, Mort?

Michael Smith is out of his mind.

Super Bowl? What's that?

(I'm sorry. I still can't talk about it. The pain is still too fresh.)

AA, PLEASE get the video of Tirico's latest rant about Soulja Boy.
