1 min read

On April 26, at 3 p.m., one of the most glorious events of the year will commence, the NFL Draft. Anticipated by millions of people around the country, the draft gives fans hope that their team will be turned around by some young stud player with something to prove.
Most ESPN and Sports Illustrated mock drafts have either Chris or Jake Longs going first. Jake, is a beast of an offensive tackle and Chris, a monster of a defensive end who can also play outside linebacker. One thing is for sure, whenever they are taken the team getting them is getting a great talent.
Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan and LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey are also highy touted prospects.
The 1-15 Miami Dolphins own the first pick of the draft while the 16-0 Patriots had their first round pick forfeited due to cheating in the first game of the season.
Though it is nearly impossible to duplicate the actual NFL draft it can be a fun way to pass the time.
We “experts” at the Bullet have decided to take a stab at trying to determine which college prospects go to which teams this year.
So without any further delay, I present to you the official 2008 Bullet staff NFL mock drafts.
