Top Five Games to Play During the NFL Draft

Bleacher ReportSenior Analyst IApril 16, 2008

As exciting as the draft is for us draftniks, even we need something to break up the monotony of Mel Kiper Jr. droning on about upside, Keyshawn pining to get drafted again, and Chris Berman looking sweaty. Here are five games to help alleviate acute forms of draft-itis. Feel free to add your own in the comments section!

 5. The Giants Game

 The NFL Draft is bound to be littered with New York Giants fans of various forms and styles due to their recent success. You must classify each Giant fan seen on TV into one of three categories: Bandwagon, Old-Timer, or Currently Drunk.

 4. Penalty Flag

 Choose a recurring event for each person in your party, for example: trade, mispronunciation, Ryan Leaf reference... Assign a penalty (have a drink, take a lap, be creative) for any occurence of selected event.

 3. Rate the Posse

 As the cameras showcase the latest draft-pick at home or in the green room, rate their posse on a scale of 1-10 based on size, awkwardness, and gold teeth.

 2. Quinn Rodgers Bowl

 Simple: pick the poor sap that will be the last one sitting in the green room.

 1. Cliche Bingo

 Make a 5x5 grid and fill it in with the best draft-day cliches: upside, best player available, bust, etc... Have a small prize for the first bingo and a jackpot for anyone that hears all 25.
