"Well, IF they draft me."

It would be difficult to put it better than Andrew Luck did in his interview with ESPN. Even when you know when and where you'll be drafted, you never really KNOW.

For all the projections, predictions and everything you read/hear from the so-called experts, the NFL draft is a fickle beast. It is difficult to truly predict where a player is going to go and when/if he will even be selected. 

For every starry-eyed prospect who gets to hug Roger Goodell on national TV, there is a somber athlete squirming in his seat, waiting for that coveted phone call. 

For some, that phone call never comes; for others, it comes way later than they ever expected. It can be difficult to say why a player falls in the draft. Sometimes, it's character concerns, while other times it is medical history.

And some players are just simply overlooked. 

No matter the reason, the players never enjoy it. 

Just ask Brady Quinn.
