Favorite Draft Day Memories...

Unread postby peeker643 » Thu Apr 26, 2012 10:00 am

You guys remember back in 2009 when the Browns took David Veikune and LeSean McCoy was the next pick off the board?

That was a good one.

I remember screaming in delight when we traded back up to draft Brady Quinn...FINALLY had our quarterback!

That was a good one.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.

Any draft day that had the first 3 rounds on a Saturday.
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.

1995. Having the Jets sneak Kyle Brady before us and then trading all the way down to 30 to draft Craig Powell, all while Warren Sapp was free falling.

1999. Passing on an entire draft's worth of picks from New Orleans so we could take Timmy.

1970 We were happy to get Mike Phipps third.......didn't think the Steelers knew their asses from a hole in wall taking a guy named Bradshaw #1...........I was in 5th grade.

....this of course is a retropick.....a "favorite"...only because of valuable life lesson.

I kinda remember the draft party at panini's in 2007. I was already a few beers in when the Bud Lite girls gave me two free 24oz tall boys. Very well oiled when Quinn was selected. Then some 21 year old Bengals fan tried to pick a fight with me.

Next thing I know it's 10pm and I'm in the Taco Bell drive thru.

Yeah - there were a lot of man hugs doled out that day.

Remember the entire place just openly mocking Lady Quinn as he began to slip, all the shots of him sitting there looking all sad. Got to about pick 14-15, people started to change their tune and talk about the potential of a trade up. When the little Cowboys helmet changed to a Browns helmet at pick #22, the place went bananas. The debate was Joe Thomas OR Quinn, and we got both, people were fired up. Eric Wright was also a very popular pick when they moved up to get him

Was also the day of the Cleveland Marathon, which went through downtown. Remember the runners looking in the windows horrified at all of us pounding beers at 10 AM.

I remember being in Paninis the night before at 2 AM with Hiko, then being back in the same bar stool drinking at 9 AM the next morning. Also distinctly remember eating 3 Paninis overstuffed sammiches on draft day. Like one every four hours.

DooDoo's 2007 draft day thread is still the greatest thing to ever happen.

The fact that he went back into the archives and deleted most of it was a huge sin.

Any Front Office that picks Steve Holden one year and then attempts to catch lightning in a bottle with Willis Adams a few years later made for warm snuggly dreams of a Super Bowl for a little Larvell way back when.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

2012 when, a few weeks before the draft, Holmgren tried and failed to to move up to #2 overall, where we would have selected RGIII. So instead of partying our asses off and actually enjoying the festivities while we sat back with smug confidence knowing we had our QB of the future, we spent countless days in wretched despair, arguing endlessly about stupid shit.
