How Draft picks are made?


I'm listening to a Rich Eisen Podcast about the 2011 combine and he's interviewing Thomas Dimitroff, General Manager of the Atlanta Falcons.  It turns out his Matt Ryan QB selection a couple years back wasn't as decisive as you'd think.

He admitted in the interview that it came down to either Matt Ryan, the Franchise QB of the future, and Glen Dorsey, Defensive Tackle that KC selected and the player that most people thought the Rams should have selected over Chris Long.  The decision came from the results of a coin flip... Glen Dorsey Heads... Matt Ryan Tails.  The coin came up Tails.

Tom went on to say the coin is there in his office and there isn't a day that goes by that he doesn't look at that coin and reflect how different the team would be if it had come up heads.

A coin flip!  so much for all those mock drafts!!!

I'd link the podcast except it's on my IPOD Nano and I downloaded it from Itunes.  So, to find this Podcast you might have to do a little searching.
