The NFL had a 1st Round Draft Last Night, who knew?

I really wanted to kind of move forward a little more with this blog this year, but that damn NFL lockout has really put a damper on that. I mean I really just do not care about the NFL at this point because of all of that B.S. I love the break from football, it's needed, but I also like the off-season items as well. Just not this year.

Last night was the first round of the NFL draft, I did not watch it. I had it up on my computer waiting to see who the Steelers were going to pick. With the 31st overall pick, I never got that chance, since when I went to bed at 10:30, the draft was only halfway through the first round. Way to milk the advertisement teet and get more money in your greedy ass hands. The first round shouldn't take that damn long. Every team knows who they want even if their top choices are no longer available.

Waking up this morning I saw that the Steelers took a Defensive Tackle named, Cameron Heyward. Which I later found out was Craig "Ironhead" Heyward's son. See I do not really follow college football, so this was news to me. I like the pick, the Steelers defensive line is aging and new guys are needed. Ziggy Hood played great last year and if Heyward can come in and play well, I won't feel so bad about losing guys like Smith, Keisel, or Hampton. (that's if they play this year, bastards). There are my thoughts on this, not much since the NFL draft really does not mean a whole lot to me, considering I have no clue about college players other than most are hyped up to be the next great player then suck a nut in the NFL.
