12 guys went by initials – TJ, JJ, JC, BW, BJ, DC, AJ, DJ, DJ, DJ, TJ, EJ.... wow, 3 DJ’s.

10 of the 12 had a “J'”...and most importantly, we know Rambo has had a few “J’s” and a Bacarri or two!!!!



2) SCHOOLS --

I'm a Maryland Alum and keep a really close eye on their sports. Their first pick went something like this......

“With the 18th pick of the 7 round, the Green Bay Packers pick -- Wide Receiver Kevin Dorsey from Maryland."

The following schools had a player (or two) picked before Maryland:

Rice – two guys!
California – in Pennsylvania
Missouri Southern State
Valdosta St
William & Mary
James Madison
3 Ivy League schools, Cornell, Harvard and Princeton
Tennessee Martin
Buffalo
Appalachian State – two guys!
Samford – not Stanford in California
Grand Valley State – huh?
East Central Oklahoma
Tarleton State – don’t tell me you know where this is?
Colorado State – Pueblo

I do take solace in the fact that we beat the following schools to the punch...

Chadron State by 3 picks
Harding by 7 picks
Missouri Western by 10 picks
New Hampshire by 17 picks
Northeastern State by 18 picks
U Mass by 30 picks and.....drum roll please....
Duke by 25...whew...wouldn’t be able to live that down!

Enough on that draft...Go Skins and Terps!
