Draft picks in their new uniforms 2016

Recommended Posts

99 is a great looking number for Bosa.

 

 

Too bad it's in that crappy font.

 

 

(Also, I'm looking forward to the day that the entire first round is made up of Buckeyes.)

Aren't the letters of the NOB supposed to be yellow?

They should be. Likely white because it was made in a rush, didn't have yellow available.

True...on the other hand, part of me thinks yellow letters would be all they have.

Still better than last year's gold nameplates.

It doesn't even look like it's in the Chergers NOB font.

Agreed, just looks like generic block letters...but who are the Chergers? 
 

(Reminds me of the Snickers commercial where the guy paints the end zone of the "Chefs.")

Hardy har har. Kind of hard to see the numbers from the side, especially when they're in motion.

And it's really easy to see the first initial on the back of their jersey in that situation?

They got it right at the Draft.

 

Perhaps the Chargers' nameplate press was shipped to LA premature.

The Mr. Irrelevant thing is one of the stupidest traditions in sports. Nowhere else is a guy disrespected for actually getting drafted.

Especially when there are scores of guys in the upper rounds (even first rounders) who are total busts and wind up out of the NFL in 2 years.

 

Yeah, I "get" the high-risk, high-reward thing of drafting the superstar players early, but at the same time you have NFL rosters FULL of those 3rd-Last round guys who are the bread and butter of most team rosters.  When your big time DL goes down with a knee injury, those are the guys who pull it together and get your team into the playoffs.  

 

Totally agree; dumb tradition.

I don't see how this is confusing. He was obviously drafted by the Denver Titans...or was it the Tennessee Broncos?

Most of them seem to enjoy it, if they have a sense of humor. I mean, it's attention they wouldn't be getting otherwise.

For the Redskins rookies I'm gonna go on a limb and predict their numbers:

 

WR Josh Docston- 18 (confirmed)

LB/S Su'a Cravens- 36 (confirmed)

CB Kendall Fuller- 27

DT Matt Ioannidis- 98

QB Nate Sudfeld- 6

LB Steven Daniels- 52

RB Keith Marshall- 29

Exactly, plus you get the first paycheck of the rookie class, and a free vacation to Newport Beach. If I'm still on the board in the seventh round, I would actually be a little disappointed if I didn't get picked last.

Well, I was right with one prediction and only one number off from another
