The real draft surprise is that Peter King doesn't call up his editors at SI.com and tell them to take their new "let's split the article on multiple pages" policy and stick it where the sun don't shine. It renders this perfectly fine MMQB almost unreadable. I swear, there are points here where it has one paragraph and then tells you to click "Continue Story." Ugh, at least ESPN lets you click on "single-page view" if you know where to find it.
Oh, as for the content, King talks to Luis Castillo about andro, gives his opinions on various draft picks, and makes a very, very good suggestion: can we please reduce the time limit on first round picks to ten minutes? I'm not sure Mel Kiper's hair can make it eleven hours again.
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
