Hats, not jerseys, for the guys in the green room

Fisher Reuters

For the second straight year, Nike had an on-site hot jersey press at Radio City Music Hall, allowing jerseys to quickly be made for every player in attendance who was drafted.

As explained by Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, the hot press has been put back in mothballs.

The players left in the green room will don the official hats but not the jerseys.  Per Farmer, the league decided it would be awkward to give the players a jersey that didn’t bear the No. 1 that signifies being taken in round one.

No more awkward, however, than going the full first round without being picked.

    They should provide some kleenex along with the cap for Geno Smith. He looked like he was about to lose it last night.

    Nothing awkward about not going first round. Only 32 people in the world do it.

    I still can’t get out of my mind that lime green horror of a Seahawks hat Aaron Curry had to wear a few years back.

    Wrecked his career, man.

    I remember the one year they had the 2nd & 3rd round pick take the pictures with the teams helmet I wonder why they stop doing that.
