ThunderTreats Is On The Clock

Well once again the fun of being a fan and seeing the 1st pick on draft day was spoiled by the Detroit Lions signing QB Matthew Stafford the night before the draft. Even though the photo above would make you ask yourself if you’ve ever ordered fast food off that guy, you are looking at the richest rookie in NFL history. This dude gets $72 million over 6 years with almost $42 million guaranteed for never even putting on a piece of Lion equipment. Geeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Regardless, this years draft should be filled with surprises and trades. Look for teams like the Cards, Browns, Bengals to dish out their unhappy wide receivers. Mark Sanchez’s stock is hotter than a Britney Spears crotch shot on the internet. Both Kiper and McShay changed their 3rd pick to LSU’s DE Tyson Jackson over the last 2 days. Jackson was a projected 12-16 pick before this. Inside information has leaked and spoiled this pick also. A contract has probably already been agreed on pending if a team attempts to trade up to take Sanchez. Let’s look at Kiper vs. McShay vs. THUNDERTREATS. Look for Thundertreats 09 NFL Draft Accuracy Report following the draft.

I went out on a limb and gambled on a few of these picks but that’s what Thundertreats is all about. I’m going to stick to them instead of slicking my hair back and flopping on picks every 5 minutes throughout the draft like my nemesis Mel Kiper will do. Even if I don’t come close to any of these. The 2009 NFL Draft will be one of the most exciting and unpredictable in years. I hope Kiper
craps his pants on camera.
