Seems like my Bills did alright in the Draft this weekend. Apparently they "reached" for their first pick, Cal Running Back Marshawn Lynch, and got a "steal" with their second pick, Paul Posluszny, a linebacker from "Linebacker U," Penn State.
I like these guys a lot. Marshawn looks like a rapper from 1992, and Pozluszny looks like A.J. Soprano with some bulk on him. Marshawn is very soft-spoken, and seems very enthusiastic. Pozluszny is probably a bit of a meathead, but he's our meathead now, dammit!
Here are some highlights of each one, set to musical accompaniment.
First Marshawn Lynch, set to N.W.A's wonderful "100 Miles and Runnin'" (the clean version)
And also, Paul Pozlaz ... Puzlas.... they just call him "Poz", to "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor.
Apparently these two fellas knew each other before. You can see the Marshawn-Poz connection at the Bills' offical site. There are also some interviews with each draft pick you can get to from that site.
One of them is bound to be a bust, but here's to optimism.
