Interviewer makes up fake NFL prospect names, ask fans what they think (Video)
We all know there is really no such thing as an NFL Draft expert. Guys like Todd McShay and Mel Kiper spend a ton of time analyzing prospects and putting together mock drafts, but at the end of the day it is impossible to know exactly what 32 teams have planned for one of the biggest weekends of the calendar year in the NFL.
A lot of pre-draft analysis involves pretending to know what you’re talking about. The folks at Football Nation took to the streets of New York earlier this week to prove that casual fans are just as effective with doing that as the so-called experts. Using names like Buster Hymen and Curvin Johnson (Calvin’s fictional brother), Football National successfully embarrassed a number of fans on camera.
No fan who is standing in line trying to get tickets to the first round of the NFL Draft wants to get caught not knowing about a “big” prospect. In that sense, you can understand how the bit that Jimmy Kimmel made famous went over so well. However, this little skit proves that honesty truly is the best policy.
