Roasting the NFL Draft

The 2017 NFL Draft came and went this weekend to the usual fanfare on ESPN/NFL Network and social media in general. Philadelphians young and old gathered not just to boo Roger Goodell until their voices were gone, but also to celebrate some accomplished young f̶u̶t̶u̶r̶e̶ ̶f̶e̶l̶o̶n̶s athletes turning their dreams into reality.


32 lucky young men took the stage on Thursday night to an applause they’ve only been able to imagine until that point. They shook the commissioner’s hand to confirm that they really are the best of the best, the cream of the crop. All this to welcome them into an exclusive club of some of the richest and most revered and adored people in the world.


Doesn’t it just make you want to take ’em down a peg?


Same here, that’s why I present to you the inaugural Beerspit NFL Draft Roast. Now because this is my first column on Beerspit and we have to go through 32 of these I’m going to do my roasts in the most condensed, but effective, form I know:
