Why I never get too excited or distressed about the NFL Draft

Because we have no idea what will happen.

UPI NewsTrack - April 27, 1982
The Baltimore Colts surprised no one today as they traded quarterback Bert Jones to Los Angeles for the Rams' first and second round picks in the 1982 NFL draft.
The Colts deal with Los Angeles came within minutes of Baltimore's pick of Mississippi linebacker Johnie Cooks as the second player chosen in today's draft after the New England Patriots took defensive tackle Kenneth Sims from Texas.
The Colts used their first round pick obtained from the Rams to select Ohio State quarterback Art Schlichter, 6 feet 1 inch and 210 pounds.
Colts Coach Frank Kush said the Colts chose Schlichter over Brigham Young's Jim McMahon because Schlichter has 'more physical stature.'
The choice of Schlichter over McMahon is something of a surprise because McMahon was generally rated the better pro prospect. But Kush spoke highly of Schlichter, saying, 'He has all the attributes that he needs and more physical stature (than McMahon),' who is 6 feet tall and weighs 180 pounds.
