So the NFL draft is getting closer and closer, and now it is time to unveil our NFL draft game!

The rules are very simple.  Just place as a comment your NFL draft and who you are (otherwise I will take credit for it).  If you nail the pick (i.e. if you guessed correctly Cam Newton will go to Carolina at #1), you get two points.  If you guessed the team and player right, but not at that pick (i.e. team trades back then drafts this person), then you get 1 point.  If you guessed the player to be picked, but got the team wrong (i.e. team A trades pick #10 to team B, who then takes the guy you picked to go at #10), you also get 1 point.

The reward for winning this competition?  Well, the writers of this blog are broke, so sadly there will be no cash involved.  What you will win is a shout-out on the website (I know, not saying much), as well as the opportunity to drink the sweet, delicious tears of your adversaries.

Since I will be busy for the next couple of weeks, I will post my draft first (although I am also posting it now so everyone will forget how awful it is).
