It is easy to follow Mat Kalil and is almost sure top 5 pick tonight. But Nick Perry is a possible first round pick as well.
Perry has a busy time in NYC set up for him...
Nick Perry arrived in New York on Tuesday, one of 26 players invited by the NFL to take part in activities leading up to Thursday's opening round of the draft.
The former USC defensive end will meet Commissioner Roger Goodell, visit a children's hospital and the New York Stock Exchange and appear on a morning television show before the prime-time announcement of first-round selections.
Perry knows there will be excitement — but also possibly heartache — in the green room at Radio City Music Hall as players wait for their names to be called.
"I've heard a lot of things about people sweating and having panic attacks," Perry said in a recent phone interview. "I just want to enjoy it. "I know anything can happen."
I really hope that Perry goes in the first round.
I think it is a bit of a long shot based on what I hear on the radio and the needs of the teams where Perry might go.
Like many of his former team mates before him, I am just stoked for Perry and hope he prospers in the NFL.
