If you really think about it, if someone wanted to design the worst television show ever, it would probably look something like the NFL draft. I mean, it’s a guy reading a name every 10 minutes. For whatever reason, we all watch it anyway. For me, other than seeing who the Chargers take and pretending I know if it’s a good pick or not, I like to see how many draftees played against Navy during their college careers. Here’s the list for the 2010 draft:
Jimmy Clausen/QB/6’3/223/Notre Dame
Golden Tate/WR/5’11/195/Notre Dame
D’Anthony Smith/DT/6’2/300/Louisiana Tech
Brandon Ghee/CB/6’0/191/Wake Forest
Thad Gibson/OLB/6’2/240/Ohio St.
Chris DeGeare/G/6’4/335/Wake Forest
Dennis Morris/TE/6’2/265/Louisiana Tech
Sam Young/T/6’8/320/Notre Dame
Eric Olsen/G/6’4/305/Notre Dame
C.J. Wilson/DL/6’4/278/East Carolina
Doug Worthington/DT/6’6/276/Ohio St.
Kurt Coleman/S/5’11/195/Ohio St.
Austin Spitler/LB/6’3/234/Ohio St.
These are people who actually played in games against Navy. If a drafted player’s school played Navy, but that player didn’t get into the game, I didn’t list him.
