2011 NFL draft By Cam’Ron Starks (Mr. Extraordinaire)
The 2011 NFL draft was held at the Radio City Hall in New York, New York. The 2011 NFL draft consisted of 254 picks and a lot of upsets occurred on the first, second, and third night of this draft.
The NFL and NBA drafts are what I look forward to for most of the year, because I like predicting the picks. I also like how the nfl scouting combine lets the college players show NFL scouts their skills by going through a series of obstacle courses.
Even though the NFL lockout was just lifted a few days before the draft, the fans at that were attending the draft were chanting “We want football” once the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell walked out onto the stage. The most recent NFL draft, 2011, was the 76th in NFL draft history.
NFL players take a long journey to getting where they are, playing other hardworking NFL players. They usually start off as kids, not even the best on their teams, but they work hard and have dedication. They go to high school, play hard and they must have their grades up if they want to go to a good college, even on an athletic scholarship. After they make it to a good college and work their hearts out, their hard work pays off in the NFL draft, as they hear their names being called.
