We meant to get this up much sooner than we did (like sometime close to the end of the draft). Hopefully this will be the beginning of a streak of high activity here at Pegboard, but I’ve made that promise in the past and I don’t want to put my foot in my mouth once more. That happens enough on its own, anyway. In this piece, Kevin and I revisit our mock draft and comment on who was actually picked. Most of this stuff actually happened. Mostly.
1. Houston Texans-
Real Pick: Jadeveon Clowney, DE South Carolina
Our Prediction: Jadeveon Clowney, DE South Carolina
Kevin: This is how the draft started, the Texans picked Clowney and Jesse jumped up on the table and exclaimed, “I AM THE KING OF MOCK DRAFTS! BOW DOWN TO ME!” While he popped open a bottle of champagne and sprayed it all over his basement. True story. We then spent the next 8 minutes attempting to pronounce Jadeveon.
Jesse: Only ESPN, the TMZ of sports, could’ve spewed out enough b.s. to make the Texans passing on Clowney seem like a realistic possibility. If Clowney lives up to the hype, the Texans are going to make life miserable for opposing quarterbacks. And I will always refer to him as Clowney, because Jadeveon is just too difficult to pronounce.
