When Roger Goodell announced offensive lineman Frank Ragnow as the Detroit Lions’ first-round pick Thursday night, there was a clear confusion among the hundreds of fans gathered for a draft party at the team’s practice facility.

Ragnew watched the first round surrounded by family. Leading up to the event, he joked about how his proud mother would regularly show Samson Ebukam Jersey where he was being projected in mocks.

Kids Richard Rodgers Jersey That was the most amazing experience in my entire life, Griffin said. It was like winning the Peach Bowl all over again. It was nuts.

No, this time, the final day of the NFL’s selection process was no snooze fest.

That’s a credit to magic and appeal of Griffin, who came and went as the feel-good story of this draft because he’s an inspiration to so many for achieving this moment as a football player with one hand. His left hand was amputated when he was 4, due to amniotic band syndrome.

Call it a disability at your own risk of looking foolish. Having one hand didn’t stop Griffin from blossoming into a star on a Central Florida team that went undefeated. And it hasn’t stopped him now.

Yet to simply hail the significance of a man getting drafted by an NFL team despite a physical disability would be a huge mistake. A disservice. Griffin is a football player. A damned good football.

He could get hot and launch a starting career if given a clean pocket and good supporting cast. But then again, who couldn’t? White is a suitable backup for Dak Prescott: no real threat to his starter status (unless everything goes kablooie) but good enough to get the job done in spot starts and inexpensive.聽Grade: B.聽
