This time of year, draft rumors come from the strangest places. The latest source? The Tonight Show.
Last night, Dolphins “owner” Jennifer Lopez told Jay Leno that she wants the team to draft a certain nose tackle.
“We have the 12th pick, you know, so I’m leaning towards Dan Williams,” Lopez said. “We need a defensive tackle, he’s really explosive
off the line, can beat the double team and does a nice job finishing
the play. But that’s just my opinion.”
Her opinion doesn’t carry much weight, given that she’s not really an owner of the team. Her husband, Marc Anthony, holds a sliver of the franchise. Still, we’re impressed that she knows who Dan Williams is.
The extent to which V.P. of football operations Bill Parcells may be upset by the remarks depends largely on whether he knows who Jennifer Lopez is.
