Exciting!  The NFL Draft is tomorrow.  We should look at the talent available to see who might get drafted.

Here's a mock-

Yellow Fever - Great sky hook.  Zeal for rebounding.  Amazing post presence.  But this isn't the NBA draft here.  Lions definitely take him. 

TwistNHook - I'm 160 pounds and 5'10".  The last time I did organized sports was in the late 90s when I was on my high school wrestling team.  I lost to a girl.  Most of my wins came from being on the Junior Varsity team as a senior.  

And I'm still better than Shaun Hill.  Niners should draft me. 

CBKWit - Perhaps the best prospect we have.  180 pounds of rock, hard steel.  Too bad he got a 3 on his Wonderlick.  And his prescription drug addiction left many NFL GMs concerned after he spent most of his interviews trying to unwrap an orange....with his mind. Also, concerns about commitment and follow-through after embarrassing "Recruiting Post" incident.

Ragnarok - From the outside, he seems to have it all.  Amazing speed.  Absurd strength.  Even looks awesome in that leather jacket on his motorbike!  But he just wants to follow his heart and do what he loves:  needlework.  He'd rather spend Sundays in a StichNBitch club then out on the field.  Hey, knit happens, right?  Makes great scarves, but might never see the field again.  Could go undrafted due to contract demands, too.  Wanted a whole lot of alpaca yarn.  I mean c'mon!  That's just greedy.  Nobody can afford THAT much alpaca.  NOBODY!

HydroTech:  He could be the one.  Great re-fill potential.  He has a few secret Gatorade recipies nobody has seen before.  Lots of experience with certain NFL players.  The Bills are DEFINITELY interested in him for his previous relationship with Marshawn Lynch.  Professional HydroTech?  Could the dream become a reality????


Avinash - Just a Jahvidtician.  'Nuff said.  This should be embarrassing when he goes undrafted.


We got some smart football players:

DALLAS, TX - Former Cal football players Alex Mack, Will Ta'ufo'ou and Zach Smith were among those honored when the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced today the members of the 2009 NFF Hampshire Society, which is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who each maintained a 3.2 GPA or better.

"This is a great and very deserving honor for all three of these guys," said Cal head coach Jeff Tedford. "Not only are they very strong athletes, but obviously their academic efforts have paid off for them. They have all been great representatives of the university and really encompass everything we're all about here when we talk about academics, athletics, social and community excellence. All three of these guys have been great people in the classroom, on the football field and socially."

All three of Cal's honorees completed their collegiate football eligibility last season.

Mack earned the prestigious Draddy Trophy in 2008, given to college football's top scholar-athlete, as he wrapped up his Cal career with an outstanding senior campaign both on the field and in the classroom. He was also the 2008-09 Pac-10 Scholar-Athlete of the Year for football and a Pac-10 first-team all-academic choice, as well as a finalist for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award given for academic and athletic accomplishment. On the field, the center earned first-team All-American and All-Pac-10 nods, and added the Pac-10 Conference's Morris Trophy to his resume for the second year in a row in 2008. He was also a finalist for the Rimington Trophy and a semifinalist for the Rotary Lombardi Award. In addition, he was named Cal's 2008 winner of the Schlessinger Coaches Award, which recognizes outstanding athletic ability, academic success and community service.
