Day 1 of the 2013 NFL draft is in the books, and there could not have been more surprises.
Few expected that kind of run on offensive linemen, with picks like Justin Pugh, Kyle Long and Travis Frederick jumping into the first round.
Who could have expected the wheeling and dealing done by the Minnesota Vikings to finish with three first-round picks—all potential starters on a playoff team? Not many expected the fall of Geno Smith all the way out of the first round while EJ Manuel went as the only quarterback.
The beauty of the NFL draft is found in its utter unpredictability.
I went 50 percent on my predictions for Round 1. I hit on the Dallas Cowboys' trade down and Manti Te'o's fall out of the first round, among others. I missed on the number of quarterbacks and running backs taken, as well as who the first overall pick would be.
While I'd love to do better in Rounds 2 and 3, I'll be content if the draft is just as unpredictable as it was on the first night.
