Comments: The crying. I can’t handle a football player crying on draft day. Past that I think Cedric Benson is going to own the NFL next year. He’s the best back in the draft since he can do it all. Since high school Cedric Benson has been programmed and developed to do one thing and that is run the ball. Stud. I like how he cut the dread locks off to start his NFL career.
