NFL Draft 2012: Dan Patrick Talks About How The Process Has Changed

At the EA Sports NCAA 2013 preview party, our own Dan Rubenstein got a chance to speak with noted media superstar Dan Patrick about the 2012 NFL Draft.

After touching upon the endless GIF-ability of the radio and television sports expert, Patrick had a lot to say about the draft. He of course has a very informed take, speaking about how the level of scrutiny is much higher than it used to be, but that he expects largely the same results as in years past, regardless of the advanced scouting and abundance of information. Patrick also picks his future Pro Bowl players from this year's crop of draftees.

The video is well worth a watch, as Patrick and Rubenstein cover a wide range of topics in a short amount of time, including Trent Richardson, flannel shirts, Tony Romo looking sad and how one would best approach shaking hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Check it out:
