After weeks of non-stop online, radio, and ESPN draft predictions, Chef has been experiencing an empty feeling the past few days.
He can't help but think that something is missing from Mel Kiper Jr.'s shameless posturing. It's not just lil' Kiper's hair that's been keeping Chef up at night. It's the basic premise of the NFL Draft, an event that too often is seen as the most important off-season improvement a team can make.
(No disrespect, Reggie. Much love.)
All Chef's been hearing this off-season is rookies, free agents, new coaches . . . but nothing on the closed door draft that happens in the ticket office on Airline Drive to determine which area of the Superdome will most propel the Saints to victory in 2007.
Makes Chef consider wonder how Cafe 641 would draft given the opportunity to select first round Who Dats to populate its Upper Terrace confines. Would Abdul make the cut? Supa? Fleur Delicious?
