While football writers across the nation have spent the past week compiling their mock drafts to predict teams' selections in the NFL Draft, Boston sports radio host Michael Felger spent his week mocking mock drafts.
His method of predicting players the Patriots might choose was to throw a highlighter at a football recruiting magazine.
On Friday night, he nailed it when the Patriots chose Arkansas defensive end Jake Bequette, one of the players whose name was hit by Felger's highlighter.
"I've never been more confident in my picks," Felger said. "Honestly, [mock drafts are] just a pointless, futile exercise."
Marc Bertrand, a sports anchor and host on 98.5 The sports Hub who works on the Felger and Massarotti show, had this to say on Twitter last night.
Mike Felger and I just proved that chucking highlighters across the room has just as good of a chance of guessing right as any "expert"— Marc Bertrand (@Marc_Bertrand) April 28, 2012
