Draft Countdown: Day 18

Did you know?

Draft picks didn’t always know right away when they were drafted. Long-time personnel man (and current NFL.com contributor) Gil Brandt remembers a time when team officials brought rolls of quarters to the draft, so they could call the draft picks with the help of an operator, who would tell them how much each call cost in quarters.

 

Bengals Thought

In Brandt’s latest mock, he has the Bengals taking Florida State tackle Menelik Watson. You’d have to think Andre Smith would be leaving Cincinnati if that pick were to happen.
