Plum’s Pat McAfee steals the show at the NFL Draft in Nashville
Before Friday night, Bobby Okereke was known merely as a guy who had a sack against Pitt in the Sun Bowl while building a reputation as one of the top inside linebackers available in the NFL Draft.
Then, former Plum, West Virginia and Indiananpolis Colts punter Pat McAfee showed up on stage in Nashville, holding a card with Okereke’s name on it. McAfee was announcing the Colts’ third-round draft choice, and he did it in style.
He referred to Colts quarterback Andrew Luck as a “Stanford nerd,” and he proclaimed Okereke as a “future Hall of Famer.” He also said Titans fans probably don’t know him because the Colts didn’t have to punt much against Tennessee.
In the video, McAfee sounds much like a WWE analyst or a stand-up comedian, which makes sense — he is both of those things now that he’s retired from the NFL.
