I got a very lengthy NFL Draft Notes email today from the NFL PR department and rather than simply dropping it in a post for you to peruse I thought I would instead make a quiz out of it. I'm hoping some of you enjoy your sports trivia like I do.
So we will start with a couple easy ones and go from there. Play however you like but I would say the bigger challenge is to answer in the comment thread off the top of your head without looking it up or looking at the comment thread. I'll post the answers Thursday afternoon before the draft kicks off.
So here's a little old and new, NFL and Panther draft trivia for you...see how many you can get right.
1. A record six (6) QBs were drafted in the 1st round in what year?
2. What college had a record six (6) players drafted in the first round in 2004?
3. Only two non-QBs have gone first overall since 2001, DE Mario Williams in 2006 was one. Who was the other non-QB drafted #1 overall since 2001?
4. In 1971 two QBs were drafted #1 & #2 overall with the first being Jim Plunkett. Who was the other?
5. Since the 1st common draft was held in 1967, what college has the most NFL 1st round draft picks with 64?
6. How many trades were executed in the 1st round of the 2011 draft?
7. Three colleges have had five (5) #1 overall NFL draft picks with Auburn and Southern Cal being two. Name the 3rd school with five #1 overall NFL draft picks?
8. In the 2008 draft, a record number of eight (8) players of what position were drafted in the first round?
9. Prior to Cam Newton being drafted #1 overall in 2011, who was the highest Panther ever drafted?
10. The Panthers last drafted a defensive tackle in the first round in what year?
Post your answers in the comment if you care...
