After a few weeks on a break, Gumbi and Bryan are back with this edition of the Cult of Colt to celebrate the pending conclusion of the hellscape that is the pre-draft period in the NFL calendar year. We’ve made it clear in the past: we’re not draft guys, at least not in the run-up to the event itself. While we recognize that there is a seemingly insatiable appetite for prognostication, you’ll get the most honest pre-selection assessment of anywhere on the internet here, which is to say that neither we nor anyone else has any idea what in the world they’re talking about.

It also seems that CoC HQ, isn’t the only one suffering from pre-draft fatigue...

To that end, in this edition, we do reflect on the recent draft history of the WFT, where they’ve succeeded (mostly in the first round) and where they’ve disappointed (nearly in every other instance.) After a brief discussion of what we’re sippin’ on, we take some time to share our opinions on the 35-some-odd potential options being considered for the pending WFT re-re-naming; the good (????), the bad (Icons, Griffins, Armada, Razorbacks, Rising, Red- Anything) and the downright hilarious (DEMON CATS NATION RISE UP!)

We close things out with a discussion of two former members of the Burgundy & Gold who hung up the cleats this season, Jordan Reed and Alex Smith, and consider their legacies in Washington and in the NFL.

What is your relationship with the NFL draft? Love it? Hate it? Dread it? Let us know in the comments below. Also, give us your favorite and least favorite, and otherwise most notable impressions of the list of potential WFT names circulating the internet this week.
