View Full Version : NFL draft guru Buchsbaum

Good reminder of the greatest imo analyst ever. For those that don't remember or never heard of him, he had an eval on just about any college player a listener could name. I could not believe it when I heard in 2002 that he had died from natural causes. John McClain basically repeats what he has said in past but I consider it a tribute to a great man, Joel Buchsbaum.

He was the 1st draft guy I remember listening to . Him and Jim Zsabo (sp) are my favorites still .

I think one of the readers that posted a note in the Chroncle said it best, so I will reprint his remark here:

JOEL BUSCHSBAUM: 5 ft 9 in, 105 lb. 40 time in the 8's.

Couldn't move the tackling dummy one inch, but world class accent. First pick skill at evaluating players. I don't like him, I love him. And we all miss him. God took him first overall in 2002.

He was the best draft guru.

Well I still have his books laying round here somewhere gathering dust. Drives my wife carzy. She just doesn't understand. He was the best.

I wished he could have found a cheer leader to spend some time with.
