The Annual Purple Monkey Dynasty League Rookie Draft was held today, and it will forever go down in infamy. Charles “Jumbo” Copeland held the 3rd and 5th overall picks, had two opportunities to draft Andrew Luck, but passed.
Phil Young was the beneficiary of Jumbo’s stupidity, grabbing Luck at 6th overall. Here’s how it went down:
Tommy: Trent Richardson
Tommy: Doug Martin
Charlie: Justin Blackmon (!?!?!)
Charlie: Michael Floyd (LOL!)
Phil: Andrew Luck (THANKS MORON!!)
We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
UPDATE: Jumbo was apparently late for the draft and claimed his picks were made by the computer. However, the fact that Blackmon and Floyd were automatically selected rather than Luck means that he set a pre-draft list that had both WR’s ranked over Luck.
