Finding the Diamonds

Every year the NFL draft provides us with spectacle; heartache, anger, happiness, despair and hope are the kind of feelings that fans of any NFL team can expect to endure throughout the two days in April. Calls for Coaches and GM's to be sacked are never quite as prevalent at any other time of the year than just after passing on "the prize" or the alleged missing piece in the elusive Super Bowl jigsaw. Seasons are made and broken, futures are shaped and months of guesswork are unraveled.
