The Most Important NFL Draft Awards Anyone Will Ever Receive

Last night in Nashville, the first round of the NFL Draft was everything I wanted and more. The trades, the reaches, the tears. It was a perfect reminder of why it will always be the best three days of the year (well, until we get to September). I can’t wait to see how totally wrong all of our snap judgments were in a few years!

While I’m no draft expert, I still wanted to hand out some awards to commemorate last night’s festivities. And while I also don’t want to encourage the “participation trophy” era, technically, it would not be right to hand out awards for players and decisions that have yet to prove their worth on a single down in the NFL. Thus, I have conjured up a perfectly crafted award for each player selected last night, no matter how angry his team’s fans were as the poor kid just trying to enjoy the best night of his life.
