Joeckel on being No. 1 pick: “Crazy to think about”

Many have come to grips with the strong possibility that Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel will be the first overall pick in the draft.

Joeckel hasn’t.

It’s just crazy to think about,” Joeckel told John McMullen of The Sports Network. “Starting football in the second grade, you don’t really think about that kind of stuff.”

Inconceivable as it may be, Joeckel nevertheless wants to be the first name called.

“It would be really cool,” Joeckel said.  “A dream come true.  But the way I’m just looking at it, I want to get there.  I am definitely striving to be the No. 1 pick, going through this entire process.  But my dream is to just play in the NFL.”

That dream definitely will be coming true.  The only question is whether he’ll go first in the draft or at some point not very long after that.

    He should go #2 overall to Jacksonville. Then we would KNOW he is the reincarnation of Tony Boselli.

    I don’t like how he said he just wants to play in the nfl, you should want to be the best in the nfl.

    But what does Brandon Albert think?

    Absolutely love it when a lineman goes first. Orlando the only one on offense.

    Everything I’ve read about him says he doesn’t have any weaknesses but doesn’t really excel in anything either.

    He will be taken first by Kansas City.

    This would be one of the worst first overall picks in NFL history.

    There’s simply NOTHING special about this guy.

    Nothing special about this guy? I can only assume that you are a Raider fan. You have had lots of “special guys” in the first round. Can you name one that is still with the team?

    Chiefs are making a mistake by not choosing Geno. and making it worse by grabbing Joke-all over Eric Fisher.

    He is going to be a very good player where ever he lands. Good kid.

    The draft options suck this year. No one really stands out more than the other ones. Come on Sandcastle!!!!!
