Every year, the same questions linger around draft time. Mock drafts are fun, as is trying to figure out which players are over- and under-valued, but that's not important once the actual draft rolls around. Once it's game time in New York, only one thing matters: Handshake or hug?
The answer has been simple this year: always a hug, usually with some kind of handshake before. Roger Goodell is a friendly commissioner on stage, and he's pulling players in tight to remind them he has the power to fine anyone into oblivion. This all looks warm on the surface, but nobody can hear what he's actually saying.
But hey, since Goodell's hugs got more passionate as the night went along, we made a montage. Enjoy!
There's a bit of everything here: the hand-slap to hug, the bear hug and, of course, the intricate handshake preceding the hug. But there's one common denominator: Everyone brings it on in for the real thing.
