Pablo's Rules to Surviving Tomorrow's Draft

For all you football loving readers out their, this is Pablo Escobar's black book on surviving the 2010 NFL Mock Draft

  1. RULE NUMBER 1 - Have no expectations
    The first rule is the most important rule.  Go into this draft with no expectations.  It's like dating a girl - don't expect too much too soon. 


  2. RULE NUMBER 2 - Prepare for the astonishing and unanticipated
    Prepare yourself mentally and physically for astonishing picks or trades.  For example - "The Cleveland Browns trade their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th round picks for St. Louis 1st overall to select Sam Bradford."  Make sure your heart is in working order and your mind is ready for a shock!

  3. RULE NUMBER 3 - The only thing for sure is that nothings for sure
    As history shows us, the draft is incredibly fickle, surprising, deceptive, unpredictable, and volatile.  A GM might say they don't like Jimmy Clausen, but decide to draft him 7th overall anyways.  They are lying - right to you face!  We spend hours upon hours on mock drafts.  The fact is - we won't be close!

  4. RULE NUMBER 4 - Do not give yourself too much credit for obvious selections
    Perhaps what we predicted will come true.  But let us not forget that most draft boards are quite synonymous with the top 10 overall prospects.  So if the Rams take Sam Bradford, don't go bragging to your friends that "you were right."  Save the bragging rights for more uncertain and eccentric picks.

  5. RULE NUMBER 5 - Have fun
    Finish your work, chores, and other obligations before the draft.  Watch the draft with friends who are also interested in football.  Don't forget appropriate beverages and think of unique drinking games to go with the draft.  Make bets.  Prepare your draft board.  Make a mock draft before the event.
