I Feel A Draft

I watched very little of the NFL draft this year.  It's not because I wasn't interested but I have regular shows that I watch on Thursday and Friday evenings.  Back in the old days I would watch all day Saturday but the primetime draft eludes my interest.

As far as I know, only one player was ever drafted that went to my high school (Clarkston):

Robert O'Neal was an All-ACC player at Clemson and was drafted by the Dolphins in the 6th round in 1993. He only played 2 regular season NFL games, for the Colts in 1994.  He was 4 years behind me in school but, if I remember correctly, he lived in my neighborhood and we played nerf football with the other kids.  I know there was a kid named Robert that I could heave the ball as far as I c.ould and he would run under it 

Probably the most famous person that went to Clarkston was Sean Mullins, who had a couple of hits in the 1990's.  He was a year behind me.  I remember him singing in the chorus.
