NFL DRAFTFriday, May 11, 2012 By Jacob Hoff
Are you ready for the NFL season to start? Every year people are waiting for the football season to begin and more so wait for the final game. Before anything in the NFL can start a draft has to happen. In a draft players are picked and traded by all of the teams. Players may be picked to help out in a weak part of the roster, or just for an empty position. All of the teams and players look forward to this event maybe to get a rookie on their team, or even a hall of fame type player. Whatever it may be players will be chosen for each and every team. The draft is seven rounds, and lasts anywhere from 2 hours to 3 hours. Some of the players that were picked are: Vikings-Matt Kalil, Harrison Smith, Josh Robinson, Rhett Ellison, Robert Blanton, Blair Walsh, and Audie Cole.
