NFL Draft Challenge: Watch Out for Falling Limbs

kurly saltsCorrespondent IOctober 1, 2016

The hype surrounding the NFL Draft always leads to talk of players' stocks rising and falling.  This year, make sure you watch out for more than stocks that may happen to be rising ... or falling. 

Glenn Dorsey was regarded as a possible No. 1 overall pick when some of the first NFL 2008 mock drafts were being published.  A monster on the D-line, an anchor of an elite defense, and a huge question mark when it comes to injuries.

Yes, that Glenn Dorsey.  Right now, Dorsey is projected to go No. 3 to the Atlanta Falcons.

With all those injuries and speculation that he might not hold up, what if he never even made it all the way to the podium? 

What if, by some chance, he managed to play on a prosthetic leg after the college football season and come draft day, with all the excitement and the nauseating atmosphere that is the green room, he forgot to properly attach his prosthetic?  

With the third overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons select Glenn Dorsey, LSU. 

Glenn rushes the podium like it's a quarterback and in all the excitement his prosthetic falls off, confirming everyone's suspicions that despite tremendous talent, his body is ready to fall apart. 

What will the Falcons do? Mike Vick is in jail, the No. 3 overall pick has already "busted," and D Hall isn’t happy about any of it. 

Not saying that it WILL happen, but do the Falcons have any hope anyways?

Where can I comment?
