I can guarantee you three things about next year’s NFL Draft. First, we won’t have to wait 15 picks before a defensive player is drafted. We might not even have to wait two. Second, we won’t witness six quarterbacks selected in the first 12 picks. We’ll likely have to wait two whole days to reach that number. Finally, a team will almost certainly pick a player that will cause most of us to scratch our heads and fans to go ALL CAPS on social media. Such is life with the “Annual Player Selection Meeting.”
