Looking Back At The 14 Best Blog Stories From the 2016 NFL Draft Class
Obviously we all knew it was a battle between Goff and Wentz for #1 pick. We all knew the big name guys, the superstars, the Zekes and Bosas. I already did a full recap of the Laremy Tunsil saga which was by FAR the best part of the draft. But after blogging these guys for their entire careers here are some of the more under the radar picks, some stories maybe you forgot about. Those guys that got drafted and you said “where have I heard that guy’s name before?”
Well, chances are, it’s because they got arrested, in a big fight, went viral for something dumb, said something offensive, and/or Tweeted a lot.
Here’s a refresher. The top 14 blog guys.
14) Trevone Boykin – UDFA – Seahawks
13) Rico Gathers – Round 6 – Cowboys
No bad news here. Just a reminder that he doesn’t play football, and just got drafted into the NFL. He played basketball. People forget that.
12) Eli Apple – Round 1 – Giants
Most recent story from the blog. Can’t cook. No life skills. Can’t dice an onion. Scrub. BUST.
11) Leonte Carroo – Round 3 – Dolphins
Fist fought a guy in the parking lot after a loss. Dolphins loaded up on character guys.
10) Connor Cook – Round 4 – Raiders
Told Archie Griffin to fuck himself as loud and clear as possible without saying fuck yourself. That kind of attitude that attracted the Raiders to him probably.
9) Tyler Higbee – Round 4 – Rams
Punched an Arab dude in the head so hard it gave him a brain hemorrhage at a bar 18 days before the Draft. Some people train, some people attempt murder.
8) Dak Prescott – Round 4 – Cowboys
Not to act like this guy wasn’t an absolute beast on the field. But what will stick in my mind the most is him getting his ass whooped on Spring Break and possibly pooping in his pants.
7) Brandon Allen – Round 6 – Jags
Guy got massages to increase his baby hands for the measurements at the Combine. Mr. Baby Hands.
6) Anthony Zettel – Round 6 – Lions
Training included tackling trees. How you let a guy like that slip to round 6 is beyond me.
5) Noah Spence – Round 2 – Bucs
Suspended for Ecstasy, says someone slipped it in his drink at a party. Promptly tests positive for Ecstasy again, suspended for whole season. My man just LOVES rolling.
“I guess I’m just curious why everyone cares so much about ecstasy and punishes players so much? For touching too many players at practice and making grass angels in the end zone and just loving life too much? The dude isn’t on steroids having roid rage episodes crushing skulls looking for a competitive advantage. He’s rolling face sucking on a pacifier being super chill and nice. Let him live.”
4) Chris Jones – Round 2 – Chiefs
Never forget when my man’s dick flopped out during his 40.
3) Robert Nkemdiche – Round 1 – Cardinals
Total loose cannon, can’t wait to see what kind of stuff this guy has up his sleeve with an NFL contract.
2) Antonio Morrison – Round 4 – Colts
Barking at a police dog. One of those intangibles that you just can’t teach. The Colts know.
1) THE GOAT: Cardale Jones – Round 4 – Bills
Thanks for all the memories Cardale. Any time there was a slow blog day, there you were to tweet something out.
Gonna miss you guys.
