Cerrato joins ESPN draft team

We should read the P.R. statements that ESPN sends more closely, because it took Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog to notice a glorious item towards the bottom of Tuesday’s release.

Former Redskins Executive VP and noted actor Vinny Cerrato will provide analysis for ESPN Radio during the NFL Draft alongside John Clayton and host Freddie Coleman. 

“Cerrato is thrilled to be part of a draft in which he didn’t trade away all his good picks for overpaid veterans,” we wish someone said.

Charles Rogers will also provide on-site financial advice
for incoming rookies.

  1. “Charles Rogers will also provide on-site financial advice for incoming rookies”- I hope this is not the same Charles Rogers who spent most of his money on drugs and alcohol!

  2. Pleeeeeze, let him do anything but suggest draft picks!!!
    Vinny, I think Danny needs his ass wiped, better run!

  3. HAHAHA why do these networks insist on hiring failed GMs like anyone cares what they have to say. They should give Matt Millen Vinny Cerrato and Michael Lombardi their own pre-draft special and call it ” How to F up a football team for 10 years !!!!

  4. Hopefully Cerrato has used his time off in rehab, and won’t be all gacked-up for the ESPN telecast… as it often appeared he was when on Redskins TV.

  5. “Cerrato is thrilled to be part of a draft in which he didn’t trade away all his good picks for overpaid veterans,”
    LOL

  6. I’ll bet when the Jets trade half of whatever picks they have left to move up in the first round…again…Vinny will be the first to say what a great move it was.

  7. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? He ruined the 49ers then the Redskins. How does this man have ANY credibility? Why should anyone listen to word he says about football and potential talent.

  8. Oh yeh, because anyone worth a damn (and many that are not) are actually working the draft for teams and not stuck talking about it on the radio. He’s a joke.

  9. Cerrato actually was pretty decent selecting players with the picks he had. I believe it was dumbass Synder makin the push to get the deions, adamn archulettas, brandon lloyds, fat albert haynesworth etc.

  10. His crazy eyes will make the draft coverage very entertaining. His eyes are very scary looking.

  11. Are you kidding me? This guy might be the worst talent evaluator the NFL has ever seen…which is the primary reason the Skins are in the crapper…even more so than Danny Boy’s love for big news splashes. What the hell could he add to draft day coverage? of course, with so many know nothing “experts” out there, what harm could another one do???

  12. Cerrato—Kiper—McShay—Mayock—draftnicks huh?
    Who freaking cares….ESPN is just stupid to hire this guy…

  13. Jamarcus will be offering personal training, Michael Vick will have a dog sitting service…the list of these are endless.

  14. Vinny reminds me of the old SNL bit: “The thing that wouldn’t leave…”
    Get lost and stay there!

    Who?Orakpo is one but the others? Malcolm, Devon, and Fred?

  16. Actually this move should help all current GMs in the league. Put away your draft boards, cancel the expensive flights to pro days and buy plenty of popcorn because all you need is a TV to monitor Cerrato – when he makes a suggestion for your upcoming pick, just do the opposite. Surefire! Hail!

    Mike Florio will provide Super Bowl predictions for entertainment.

  18. Will he explain how he ruined the 49ers with draft picks like Dexter Carter, the human surf board-Jim Drunkenmiller, or the guy from USC who never showed up but got his signing bonus? Or how he turned the Washington Foreskins into a power house?

  19. Will he explain how he ruined the 49ers with picks like Drunkenmiller, Dex Carter, and some guy from USC who never showed up for work? Or how he turned the Washington Foreskins into a powerhouse?
    The only thing he knows is how to collect a paycheck for no work…whoops there he goes again!

  20. Yet he’s still more qualified to talk about draft picks than anybody on the PFT staff, given what Florio himself has said.

    =============================
    Ummm…….yeah. That would be the joke, captain obvious.

  23. two thumbs down I will mute my tv when his analysis comes up. I’m so glad we got him out of town…but hey good for him he actually found another job.

  24. Oh please, ESPN, please let Vinny and Matt Millen sit up on your main stage pontificating on what it takes to build a winning NFL franchise……I just might change the channel from the NFL Network for the laughs, but probably not.

  25. ESPN will now lose all ESPY awards and end up with defunct advertising deals. Not good for them. This is why we fired his ass and he is now “fake recruiting” for TV. Imaginary job.

  26. i cant wait until he says with the only thing wrong with the McNabb trade was they didnt resign him to a 7 year contract wiht $35 guaranteed.

  27. It is laughable that anyone would actually employ Cerrato for anything football related. ESPECIALLY THE DRAFT!!!! He is the only idiot that would offer Haynesworth the 100 million he got. He is the worst GM or player personnel guy EVER!!! I pray he lands in an alley, broke, digging in trash cans for food.

  28. Everyone.. its ok… don’t worry about it.. He drafted T.O.
    He knows what hes talking about……
    .. atleast he thinks so.

    Who?Orakpo is one but the others? Malcolm, Devon, and Fred?
    Chris Cooley, Fred Davis, Sean Taylor, Chris Horton, HB Blades.
    And Landry will thrive as long as he stays at SS instead of FS.
    Malcom Kelley will flame out but Devon Thomas has potential.
    Dont get me wrong, I’m glad hes gone but he wasnt the worst GM in history. Matt Millen wrote the book on that…

  30. first piece of evidence i have seen that pretzel boy isnt the “dumbest” employer in the world,at leastt one more place is crazier than he

  31. this is a joke right this guy knows nothing about draft picks he doesn’t believe in the draft…is daniel snyder gonna be next to him acting like the draft matters to them….and please ESPN lets not go to the player on tv while he’s on the phone about 2 minutes b4 his name is called and ruin the pick, show the guy after his name is called

  32. I wish had even a tiny bit of desire to watch the draft so I could say this news makes sure I won’t see it.

  33. That would be roughly the equivalent of putting Tim Geithner, the guy who oversaw the historic bank failures of 2008, in charge of the U.S. Treasury. Hey, wait a minute…………….

  34. Mike Vick will not be appearing on the show. Rather, he’ll be making an appearance on a very special, “Dog Whisperer.”

  35. Looks like I’ll be watching NFL Network next week. That bug-eyed clown and his BFF, Danny, ruined my football team. What does he have on ESPN?

  36. Vinny Cerrato and Charles Rogers……..I guess all the decent analyst are on vacation the week of the draft. Talk about scraping the barrel.

  37. agree with Rip21….
    People can jone on Cerrato all they want but he is a good talent evaluator.
    A terrible GM, yes but when you compare his draft picks to others in the league (start with Bruce Allen) he matches up very favorably.

  38. Is ESPN above the law? That network will hire anybody. I heard they once gave Mike Florio a paycheck, but dumped him when Sean Salisbury became available.

    Rumor has it Salisbury’s cell phone glamour shot was more enticing.
