The NFL Draft is my personal favorite time of year. Summertime? Lame. There’s no football. The holiday season? Not a chance. Christmas is for chumps. But late April, when I start to see people like Todd McShay and Mel Kiper on my TV screen more and more, until eventually that’s the only content I’m consuming in any form? That’s my holiday season. And great news! We’re officially within one week of draft night, so we really have to get cooking on finishing up the cheat sheet. Over the course of the next week, I’ll be releasing the final NFL Draft cheat sheets to help people get familiarized with the names you’ll be hearing this weekend. We’ve only got two left, after all.
