A Note of Interest

Mario WilliamsWith the completion of the 2006 NFL Draft two weeks ago, it made the third consecutive year that the #1 overall pick was a player whose autograph I had collected while they were in college.

First it was QB Eli Manning out of Mississippi, taken by the Giants in 2004. Then there was QB Alex Smith of Utah, selected by the 49ers in 2005. The three-year streak continued when the Texans (surprisingly) took NC State defensive end Mario Williams with the top overall pick in 2006.

Looking towards the 2007 NFL Draft, early reports seem to like Oklahoma RB Adrian Peterson and Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn as the most likely to be selected #1 next April. Both players are among those on my list to send requests to this fall.
