    Phil Hansen was a great player underrated his entire career.

    With the 46th pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions select: Barry Sanders Jr.! Seriously though, he’s got to be coming out soon, right?

    Somehow the greatest LT of all time (Jones) trumps the rest of the list…Asterix please?

  7. valcomm5 says: Apr 23, 2012 6:04 PM

    something tells me that this will take all night to do due to standing ovations. Hell, Barry Sanders alone will take 20 minutes!

    I thought Favre might be announcing the Packers’ pick.

    Terrell Davis and Barry Sanders…

    two amazing RB’s whose careers ended too soon.

    If Chad Hennings is going to be there, they should get Charles Haley to do it with him. That would be must watch TV.

    Phil Hansen was awesome. Bill Parcells once said that if he had 11 Phil Hansens he would never lose a game.

    Issac Curtis is a Bengals legend and Westbrook is my favorite non Bengal. Both are class acts.

    Great idea by the NFL!

    The Packers don’t deserve some “bold” love?

  14. howiefeltersnatch says: Apr 23, 2012 7:27 PM

    Yeah, real nice run Stover out there for the Ravens. The lone original Brown. They should just put Art on a two wheeler and run him out there instead. Or Ted Marchibroda. Matt Stover…

  15. waldoampere says: Apr 23, 2012 7:30 PM

    Pretty good team.

  16. essentialsausage says: Apr 23, 2012 7:31 PM

    Barry Sanders, baby!

  17. benacci says: Apr 23, 2012 7:33 PM

    How did they find Marvin Harrison!?

  18. joemammy says: Apr 23, 2012 7:34 PM

    Was Jamarcus unavailable to the Raiders?

  19. bigboi30 says: Apr 23, 2012 7:54 PM

    Barry Sanders and no other. Alot of RB come close, bit there is no better then Barry Sanders. Career ended way before his time. NCAA 13 cover RG3/Barry Sanders. Madden 13 cover megatron this is detroits year.

    And on their way out the door they can sign up to join the concussion lawsuits

  21. ctdlc85 says: Apr 23, 2012 8:17 PM

    How about Wesley Walker announcing Nick Tion as a 3rd round choice for the Jets?

  22. captaincanoe says: Apr 23, 2012 8:39 PM

    Favre was drafted by the Falcons and traded to the Packers after his rookie season. So it would be odd for him to be involved with the Packers draft.

  23. squared80 says: Apr 23, 2012 9:39 PM

    AC for the Vikes. Sweet.

  24. mike5011ad says: Apr 23, 2012 9:49 PM

    Danny Clark for the Texans? Was Benny Joppru busy or something?

  25. maalea says: Apr 23, 2012 10:04 PM

    The Ravens may want to give Matt Stover a tryout instead.

  26. istateyourname says: Apr 23, 2012 10:10 PM

    I thought their heads hurt too much to do anything productive (except for Stover’s).

  27. laserrocketarm12 says: Apr 23, 2012 10:10 PM

    Now here is a smart strategy to draw I viewers in for the 3rd day of the draft.

  28. huskerguy says: Apr 23, 2012 10:41 PM

    Good to see that the Colts took a shot at getting Harrison and hit the target.

    *rim shot

    Yeah, I mean why would they wanna “run Stover out there?” I mean the guy only lives here in Baltimore, kicked here for 13 years, is the third most accurate kicker in NFL history, and in the Ravens Ring of Honor. Yes, we know he used to play in Cleveland….it took us four years to get the stench and the losing off of him before we won the Super Bowl.

    Get a life, dude!

    Are any of these guys plaintiffs in the many concussion suits now pending?

    Barry Sanders got the loudest and longest ovation of any NFL star! GOOOOO LIONS!!!!
