Four, not five, Tiders went in last night’s first round:
3. Cleveland Browns – Trent Richardson. The Browns take Richardson despite a heaping dose of meh from the world’s greatest
human running back, Jim Brown.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Mark Barron. Rumor has it that Barron even smiled a little last night.
17. Cincinnati Bengals – Dre Kirkpatrick. This could be a match made in er, uh, someplace besides Heaven.
25. New England Patriots – Dont’a Hightower. Bill Belichick gets a Tider in the first round after flirting with Mark Ingram last year.
Of course, that leaves out Courtney Upshaw. I was expecting the Jets to take him at No. 16, but when that didn’t happen, he fell all the way out of the first round. I feel bad for him since he traveled to New York City for the show and didn’t have his name called last night, but whoever gets him in round two gets a beast. Upshaw will play a long time in the League.
