2010 NFL Gridiron Gab Draft Trivia

Analysis of the 2010 NFL Draft is about to come at you in a 100 different directions.  Since no one really knows how it is all going to fall out… I thought I’d give you some tidbits; some fresh angles that others may not have thought of.  And, because I know your time is valuable, I am only going to hit you with the top 100 of the draft (according to KFFL.com and Consensus Draft Services).

1 Shortest: WR Dexter McCluster standing just 5’8.1” out of Mississippi

2 Tallest: DE Clifton Geathers at a whopping 6’7.7” out of South Carolina

3 Fastest: WR Jacoby Ford from Clemson who ran the 40 in 4.25

4 Slowest:  Nose Tackle out of Alabama Terrence Cody who ran the same 40 in 5.55

5 Lightest: our friend Dexter McCluster weighing in at 165 lbs

6 Heaviest: (any guesses here?) Nose Tackle out of Alabama Terrence Cody at a dainty 370 lbs

(Last but not least)

7 Funniest name : this was easily taken by Selvish Capers from West Virgina (Since he weighs over 300 lbs and is nearly 6’5”, you don’t have to tell him I said so.)

There are some big name players looking to pick up some big cash coming into the NFL, but there are some others who might be picking up some great contracts for a different reason.  It’s called ‘supply and demand’.  Di d you know there is only 1 nose tackle (again all references are based upon the top 100) in this year’s draft?  Here are a few other positions that appear to have very limited supply:

Nose Tackle: 1

6’4” 370 lb Terrence Coby out of Alabama

Centers: 2

6’4.4” 290 lb Matt Tennant from Boston College  (and)

6’5” 318 lb Maurkice Pouncey from Florida

Offensive Guard: 3

6’5.2” 325 lb Mike Lupati out of Idaho

6’4” 300 lb Jon Asamoah from Illinios  (and)

6’5.3” 332 lb John Jerry from Mississippi

And the last piece of trivia for you today… Did you know that of the top 100 draft candidates, many of them (32) have come out of 7 schools?  All seven made somebody’s 2009 Top 25 post season rankings list.  Here they are along with their number of the draft prospects:

Florida 6
Oklahoma 5
Texas 5
Alabama 4
Clemson 4
GeogiaTech 4
USC 4

That’s all for now fans.  Enjoy the draft!!!
