Somewhere out there, a star football player is probably celebrating the holiday by smoking an unfathomable amount of weed and watching Planet Earth all day. Maybe he'll have a friend take him to get some food in a little while. Maybe they'll get approached by the police.

And ... #SCIENCE is saying ... DRAFT THAT MAN. We'll talk more about this next week, but yeah. Cliff Harris and Janoris Jenkins should forward this article to all 32 teams as soon as possible. I love the NFL Draft.
