08:00 AM ET 04.29 | Chants of "we want football" and a chorus of boos for the commissioner were only some of the reasons that put this draft in the running as possibly the most bizarre. The No. 1 pick (Cam Newton) was virtually unheard of a year ago, when he completed 3 of 8 passes in the Auburn spring game to win the starting job. The No. 2 pick (Von Miller) is a plaintiff in an anti-trust suit against the NFL. He and [Roger] Goodell hugged anyway. ... At 19, the New York Giants selected cornerback Prince Amukamara, who is the son of a Nigerian chief and whose family took the stage in full royal garb. Take that William and Kate. Baltimore was too slow to get pick No. 26 in (the 10-minute clock ran out) and it was jumped by Kansas City, a fairly epic clock management error. The Ravens wound up picking 27th.

Goodell hugged every one of them. Felt like a drunken frat party....

They act surprised. They brought it on themselves.

Funny. He always does that. But he did not hug Cam. Hmmm..

Goodell deserves every boo he gets. They don't make a plunger bit enough to get rid of this turd.

Make that "big enough."

I wish him festering pustules in his nether region.

Has anyone ever fallen through the draft like DaQuan Bowers? He went from top 5 to second round.

Probably because of that Urkel picture of him they keep posting here

Didn't Cam get boo'd too? How often does the first overall pick get boo'd...

It was funny to see Goodell try and get them to hush while being polite because if he lost his cool that would have made things much worse.

Yeah. Do you suppose he's still saying "I'd love to play in Cleveland" if it's only for second-round money?

Worse, but entertaining.

no team was dumb enough to take a chance on a first round pick for a guy that most people think will be a one contract player because of his knee.

Boo'd the choir boy did they? I find that friggin' hilarious. Time to send this "jack wagon" packing.
