Draftniks, Relax

To those of you already doing mocks for the 2013 NFL draft, I have but one thing to say:
What the hell is wrong with you?
It is time for NHL playoff hockey. The Charlotte Bobcats have been put out of their misery, meaning it's NBA playoff season as well. Baseball is underway, awash in compelling story lines. The Olympics are due sooner than you think. Tiger Woods has once again gotten a rough idea of which end of the golf club he's supposed to be holding. NASCAR is happening, or so I'm told. There are roughly nine million sports stories to be told before the next NFL draft, you just got your fix, and you're already jonesing for another one?
Seriously, there is no way of knowing which college kids will play well, which teams will have needs come next draft, and what the draft order is going to be - BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T PLAYED NEXT SEASON YET.
So chill out, Spartacus. Grab a beer. Watch a Cubs game from the bleachers or learn who the hell Spencer Hawes is. And don't bother me with NFL draft stuff for another ten months.
Please.
