Just because all of us NFL fans are depressed about the lockout, doesn't mean we can't have some fun a week and a half before the NFL's 76th annual NFL Player Selection Meeting!
I've tried to think back and recall all of the times I've said to myself, "You know who that looks like..." To give myself some leeway, I'm going to include former and current players, as well as members from this year's soon-to-be draft class.
I hope we can have some fun with this. Please post up, and comment if you can think of some!
