As ESPN’s NFL Draft coverage was winding down on Saturday, the guys on the TV set gave Kiper a pumpkin pie with fat free whipped cream. Their gift to him followed a commercial where Kiper breaks down all the toppings at a salad bar just like he would analyze draft prospects.

Wingo also shared Kiper’s odd eating habits during the draft. According to Wingo, Kiper doesn’t touch food or water throughout the entire draft, and then he eats a pumpkin pie for dessert.

Other Kiper oddities? He does not eat cheese on pizza, he’s never written a check before, and he doesn’t have or use an ATM card. He also just started using a computer in 2009:
