With each passing day, we continue to edge closer to April 28th, and the start of the 2011 NFL Draft. With each show on NFL Network, ESPN or any football show dedicated to the draft, you will undoubtedly hear the phrase, "He is a fringe late round one/early round two pick." Or he is a fringe late round two, early round three pick, etc.
If you happen to be a fan on the Fox show Fringe, you might find yourself reflecting on the show each time the word fringe gets bandied about. I am a big fan of the show, and while I was trying to figure out a new story for the draft, I thought about the concept of matching each cast character on Fringe to the player in the upcoming draft that they are "most parallel to," which is a key phrase if you are a fan of the show.
Because since we part of the parallel universes, there has to be a football player who matches up well with the cast members, right? If you are not a fan of the show, this probably will not make sense to you, so you are excused from going further.
If however, you are a fan of the show, and are into the NFL and the draft, please venture forward. If you have other ideas for matching college players who are draft eligible with Fringe cast members, I would enjoy reading your thoughts. This is meant as a lighter piece, or a comedy piece, so please don't get worked up over this.
