Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Mechelle checks in about the draft:
OK, so it wasn’t a deep draft. It wasn’t even a semi-deep draft. It’s too harsh to say it was as shallow as a plastic kiddie pool. But maybe it was as shallow as one of those back yard above-ground pools. As I mentioned to my editor at ESPN.com, thank goodness the draft no longer went four rounds, as it did years ago. Because if there had been a fourth round this year, I think the pro teams would have had to draft a few of the school mascots to round out their selections.

Between injuries, defensive questions, offensive questions, mindset questions, size, strength and probable need to change positions, there is more to wonder about than be certain of with this year’s group of seniors aspiring to be pros.
