Other Bloggers Work So We Don't Have To

Paul Frankenstein assembled an All-Name Team from this weekend's NFL Draft. A few of his selections:

FB: Orenthal O’Neal, Arkansas State, Raiders. Last time there was a RB in the league named Orenthal, he did OK for himself.

WR: Legedu Naanee, Boise State, Chargers.

OL: Mansfield Wrotto, Georgia Tech, Seahawks.

DE: C.J. Ah You, Oklahoma, Bills. I know nothing about this guy, but I love his name.

ILB: Desmond Bishop, California, Packers. Not to be confused with Bishop Desmond Tutu.

RS: Syndric Steptoe, Arizona, Browns.

The excellent Awful Announcing imagined this conversation between NFL football operations director Gene Washington and Buffalo Bills GM Marv Levy when the O.J.'s took C.J. Ah You in the seventh round:

Gene Washington: Mr. Levy, we need your pick.

Marv Levy: We'll take...Ah You.

Gene Washington: Mr. Levy, you can't select me, I'm 60 years old.

Marv Levy: No. We want Ah You, from Oklahoma.

Gene Washington: I'm from Alabama.

As others have noted: Lucius Pusey, sadly, was not drafted.
