From the Onion News Network:
NEW YORK—After several minutes of intense negotiations, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid agreed to trade the team’s No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft for a bite of a bacon double cheeseburger, repeatedly insisting that the offer was too juicy and dripping with melted cheddar to refuse. “Sure, Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel might provide excellent quarterback protection for the next 10 years, but this bacon double cheeseburger is just massive and loaded with succulent charbroiled beef patties,” said Reid, who was also impressed by the sandwich’s four strips of crispy bacon. “Sure, there’s a risk that this bacon double cheeseburger might not be as good as it looks. But I’ve watched and carefully studied this sandwich, and I believe it’s the real deal. No matter what, I always trust my gut.” At press time, the Chiefs general manager and scouts were shocked and horrified after watching Reid consume the entire bacon double cheeseburger in a single bite.
Jason La Canfora: Every reason to believe Eric Fisher is first overall pick. Chiefs will likely use up all theri time though being thorough in case of trade
I believe that is their likely course of action -- and a good idea.
I didn't mind Mikell. Just didn't make the money work.
Agreed. Dolphins got cute there, then tried to scramble back late to keep him from the STL.
From Sam Mellinger: Man, what a climb by Eric Fisher. Two-star recruit four years ago, mid-to-late first round pick four months ago, first overall pick tonight.
From Sam Farmer of the LA Times: Branden Albert, you are free to roam about the country.
We shall see. If the Rams wait to take a RB in this draft, that would indicate some confidence from the coaches.
From Dan Wetzel: No. 1 pick in NFL Draft from Rochester, Mich. Take that SEC and all your warm weather "talent"
Vaccaro seems like the guy.
From Bill Plaschke of the LA Times: Is this the first number-one-overall pick whose team lost by 17 points to Navy?...
The trade up cost could be steep. Team has lots of needs. Fill a need at 16.
