Michael Wilbon thinks mock drafts are dopey, is certain the Redskins front office is clueless and has some funny thoughts on Braylon Edwards. Apparently Edwards has already purchased a $140,000 Bentley, while spending most of his free time talking himself up as the next great wide receiver. Here's what Wilbon had to say:
"Is it just me, or does this remind you just a little bit of another promising receiver drafted by the Redskins who thought a whole lot of himself, who had a $140,000 car before he had caught a touchdown pass in the NFL? Does the name Michael Westbrook ring a bell? Tell me again how that worked out for the Redskins?" (bugmenot/free registration required)
Antonio Brown is a late-round steal, but which active WR has beaten the odds of the draft and his QB? We studied the breakout seasons of the 20 all-time leading receivers and recent hidden gems. How important is QB play in developing a WR?
