NFL Draft time

The biggest, most expensive gaming table of them all is will be on view this weekend in New York when the NFL holds it's annual draft. Teams from around the league will square off to inject fresh blood into their line ups with the best and brightest in college football today. The only problem is that they have no idea which players will actually help their teams or will end up being a very large headache. Will they bring NFL glory or minicams, spotlights and microphones in the face of the coach asking "what happend to Ricky?"

No one knows.

Take the 1999 Draft for example. The first two overall selections were Tim Couch and Dononvan McNabb. Tim Couch is sitting on a couch and McNabb is the Philadelphia Eagles franchise QB. Yet the Cleveland Browns (at the time) thought that he would make a better field general than McNabb. Snake eyes and you are out. Also in the first round of that draft were Akili Smith, Daunte Culpepper and Cade McNown.

Unbelievably, only McNabb and Culpepper remain in the league and McNabb was actually booed at his selection by Philadelphia Eagles fans that had wanted Ricky Williams!

So lay down your money and see what happens. It's a crap-shoot.

Good luck.
