2012 Thread Mock Draft Part 2

Welcome back folks. As Dexter Morgan infamously says, tonight’s the night. And by tonight, I mean, of course, Thursday night! THE NFL DRAFT BEGINS!!! We’re here for the final 16 picks of our mock draft first round. CHECK OUT PART 1 HERE. Enjoy!!!

Mark: With the 17th pick in the 2012 Thread Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Dre Kirkpatrick, Cornerback, Alabama.

It was very tempting to give the Bengals Janoris Jenkins with this pick (who may actually be the most talented corner available). It fits their philosophy to draft or sign extremely talented players who’s stock has taken a hit due to character red flags.  Also, just the idea of the dream team of Jenkins and Pac Man Jones as your starting corners is unreal. Opposing receivers would fail drug test just from the second hand smoke coming from Jenkins and Pac Man.  Children of strippers would have college funds started because of the money “raining” down from Jenkins and Pac Man. I’d want a season long edition of a Hard Knocks like show to follow them around all season if they ended up on the same team.

Anyway, the Bengals are trying to clean up their image, so they go with Kirkpatrick because of his great man-to-man coverage skill, which is something Cincy likes to do a lot, and the fact that he is a good character guy.  It also helps that the Bengals are picking again in four picks (this is originally the Raiders pick, thanks a lot Hue Jackson), so the Bengals have some flexibility to go after another need here if there is a more highly rated player available and still get some help for their secondary at pick 21.

2012 Thread NFL Mock Draft Part 1

Welcome everyone to the 2012 Thread NFL Mock Draft. The NFL Draft officially starts on April 26th this year and will prove to be as fascinating as ever. The 3 of us that brought you the Thread Mock Draft of last year, are all back for another go. If you’ve forgotten who we are, the trio consists of myself, MYH, and friend of the Thread, Mark Rodriguez. The picks will be alternating after the first two picks (Which I’m writing up) like this: 1st: Mark 2: MichaelYoungHistory 3rd: Myself. *Note that we’ve done some moving of picks to allow all of us to make the announcement for our favorite team or teams. And with the ground rules in place, the Indianapolis Colts are on the clock.

With the 1st overall pick in the 2012 Thread Mock Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select, Andrew Luck, Quarterback, Stanford.

The consensus number one pick for the last 2 years, Andrew Luck, is just as advertised. The best QB prospect since Peyton or John Elway. We’ve heard it all before. And as of this morning, the Colts have finally made it official that he will be the #1 pick. He has all the skills to make a difference in this league from jump. But this guy has a very empty cupboard to go to in Indianapolis. Plus there’s the whole replacing that #18 guy. Oh, and Jim Irsay might be crazy. So good Luck…Andrew (see what I did there?)? The good thing for Andrew is he’s in a weak division (aside from the defenses) right now. He’s going to get beaten up pretty badly by the defenses at least, especially Houston, but he could win a possible game from both Jacksonville and Tennessee. Plus, Reggie Wayne was crazy enough to want to stay in Indianapolis. So it isn’t a total loss. If Andrew Luck has half the career Peyton Manning has had for the Colts, the Colts fan base can’t be too disappointed in letting Peyton go.

He Said/She Said: Women’s Basketball – The Aftermath

After facecurtainista blessed you with “Sports In Real Life Vol. 2: The Future for Women’s Hoops“, we thought we’d follow up now that the women’s championship game has come and gone. For those of you keeping up with our “He Said/She Said” series, we’re back for a fourth installment.  Here are the first three (For Colored Girls, Making Love vs. Having Sex, Love Jones) in case you missed them.  I brought along our resident Threader who played collegiate basketball to discuss the aftermath of last night.  She brought you this gem that shattered myths about female basketball players.  I don’t pretend to be a huge women’s basketball fan, but like many men, I was tuned in and turned on.

Why were men suddenly so interested in watching a women’s basketball game?
He Said: Let me go ahead and just get this out of this way. This is why men were tuned in:
