    Ok, so pretend you are the amazing Kreskin and can see into the future. What are some of the comments we will see from our estmeemed posters or the media regardless of our picks?

    By midnight tonight, we will have multiple of the following no matter who the pick is -

    We could have easily gotten this guy in the 2nd rd

    He stinks

    Why would we draft a (insert position) when we need (insert 2nd position)

    Fire Kubiak/Smith/The Waterboy

    He doesn't fit our defense/offense

    What a wasted pick

    This is a bad value

    He'll be out of the league in (x) years

    Am I missing anything? :kitten:

    Don't forget about the spring of eternal optimism.

    "OMG1"
    "I can't believe he dropped!"
    "Just who I wanted!"
    "Texian can suck it!"
    "That was exactly who we needed"

    LOL. Good one.

    How about guessing how many times we hear "plug and play" from Mike Mayock. I'll set the over/under at 22.5 for the weekend. Can I get any action on that? :wadepalm:

    Disappointed...

    Thought this was a thread on The Amazing Kreskin, which we actually watched as kiddos.

    My comment I expect to be "Not my guy but a solid pick. Hope he works out."

    That's way too level-headed of you. I want to see a good knee jerk reaction like we usually have. I want to see "I'm jumping off a bridge" out of you or I for one will be highly disapointed! :)

    Mine will either be, "Well, I'm good with it if Kubiak is..." or "Well, I'm good with it if Wade is..."

    Same (I think it's broadcast live online). All ESPN's draft coverage has turned into is Todd McShay and Mel Kiper trying to one up each other.

    He's only played that position for X years.

    He comes from a weak conference.

    He lacks a classic NFL build.

    He's a workout warrior.

    This always get's thrown around, "He is an amazing physical specimen". "Bubble butt" is something I have heard a lot from that one white dude who talks about combine workouts.

    I know kubiaks response after the draft, id bet first words out of his mouth are gonna be "hes a great kid" "hes a stand up kid" "hes an intelligent kid" blah blah blah yeah he said that about Amobi Akoye howd that work out?!

    Wades comment "this kids got a high motor which we all loved" "hes just got a nose for the football"... truth is, i think wade is a great talent recruiter so i dont mind his opinions bc hes usually right.

    That 6th round pick will be a day one starter.

    I could not care less about what Mel Kiper has to say bc i dont think ive ever seen any of his picks become true other than the ones everyone and their mom knows about such as Luck, RGIII, etc... i think Mayocks predictions are a little more believable due to the fact he just makes more sense as to why these teams would have them on their bored.

    Kubes first words tonight - we can't believe that <insert name here> was there at #26. We had him rated much higher than that.

    Rick Smith's first words - We're elated to have this young man join our team. We expect big things from him.
