We should really wait a few years, but let’s live dangerously…
Not gonna lie, it was kinda cool to see Debbie the Texan announce a draft pick in Las Vegas last week.

Despite the fact that having fans and other randoms announce picks for other teams was a bit annoying. But, Debbie’s cool.
Now that the smoke has cleared and the pre-draft hype is gone, the post-draft-entirely-to=premature-grading has begun.
Let’s join in shall we!

For a team that hadn’t done, literally ANYTHING deserving a passing grade since last year’s draft, this is a good thing. At least it’s a step in the right direction, and possibly proof that Jack Easterby doesn’t have the level of influence we all fear. Maybe…
Oh, and Lonnie Johnson Jr got traded to the Kansas City Chiefs post-draft, so there’s another step in the right direction. That is, if you view strengthening your own roster and weakening that of an AFC powerhouse a good thing, which you should.
Here’s the list of 2022 draftees, in case you somehow missed it… not sure how you could have… but these are confusing times…
1(3) – Derek Stingley, CB, LSU
1(15) from PHI – Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M [Editor’s Note: Woooooooooooo! Atascocita represent!]
2(37) – Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor
2(44) from CLE – John Metchie, WR, Alabama
3(75) from DEN – Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
4(107) from CLE – Dameon Pierce, RB, Florida
5(150) from CHI – Thomas Booker, DT, Stanford
5(170) from NE – Teagan Quitoriano, TE, Oregon St.
6(205) from GB – Austin Deculus, T, LSU
Caserio on (what we didn’t know at the time were Mario Addison and Rasheem Green): “We actually before the draft came to some agreements with some players that we already knew ahead of time … wouldn’t say it necessarily factored into who we drafted or how we drafted.” pic.twitter.com/0GpKYXnbxE
