By the way, we’re not trying to dog on Joeckel. He’s a quality player. What he isn’t, is sexy. And we don’t mean that because he’s an offensive lineman, we mean that he doesn’t attract buzz. There’s no sizzle. He’s unlikely to be doing national commercials or hosting Saturday Night Live like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. In fact, aside from Matt Barkley, we probably don’t have a pitchman in the entire 2013 draft class.
But you know what? Who cares? While this draft might not have the glitz and glamour of years past, this crop could end up being solid NFL contributors for several years to come.
We’re not pointing out which face belongs to Joeckel here. Cast your vote, and if you want to find the answer, just click here.
