I mock the mock NFL drafts. Someone will surely make an unexpected selection or trade Thursday night to upset the entire apple cart. Don’t you hate it when apple carts are upset?
I’m using Iowa offensive tackle Riley Reiff as an example because a) He’s from Iowa and I cover Iowa and b) Do I really need another reason?
