What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The Dubsism “Anti-Kiper” 2013 NFL Draft Board

mel kiper slash

Now that we are finally past the Super Bowl, it is time to address the needs of your team heading into the NFL Draft. So, take a few moments to look forward so that your team can give itself a better shot to be where the Ravens find themselves today.

Everybody has a NFL Draft “Big Board.” But unlike the ones you  get from the “professionals” at ESPN, we here at Dubsism offer a draft board based on the fact we actually have watched college football at some point in our lifetimes. This means we don’t care about how much we love to hear our own bloviation, there isn’t another blog out there taking shots at us yet (so we don’t have that whole “Mel Kiper/Todd McShay thing happening), and we aren’t worried about how much face time our increasingly oddly-shaped pompadour gets.

Rather, we would rather put out rookie  draft “shopping list” that we feel is our best effort to help you, the NFL fan who knows almost nothing about college football beyond the first few picks. We also won’t give you any flowery summaries of these players; there’s eight billion other sites doing that. Our model is you peruse the lists, both overall and by position, and decide which of these guys may help plug the numerous holes your favorite team has. However, we don’t bother with kickers and punters, largely because they are literally a “dime-a-dozen” and if you think a kicker is all that separates your team from a Super Bowl, you likely need a psychiatrist more than a draft board.

We will revisit this list with some advice on what your sorry-ass team needs to do in order to improve itself, and this board will play a large part in that counsel. The one thing I would caution you against is that we here at Dubsism are firm believers in the “Mike Mamula” rule; meaning we don’t put much stock in the witchcraft that are the NFL Combines, so don’t expect this board to change significantly.

    Tough to recall a guy like Matt Barkley’s draft status drop so far from one year to the next just for staying in school.

    Still, as desperate as NFL teams are for quarterbacks, I think he’ll go earlier than expected.

      Well, that shoulder injury doesn’t help…nor does the reputation on bad USC quarterbacks.

      But you are exactly right about the desperation for quarterbacks.
