RICHMOND--You know, those of us in the media might be guilty of fawning over Robert Griffin III sometimes. But then you see a picture like this, Griffin getting a kiss from 99-year-old Georgia Poole of Prince George County in Virginia and you relize that maybe you can't say too many good things about the guy.
More than 220 players will be drafted over the next three days in Philadelphia, but only five of them make the CSN All-Name team. There are plenty of candidates, but it takes a lot to make this list.
To be clear, this list does not represent the Top 5 players for the Redskins to target. It doesn't even represent players the Redskins might be interested in. These guys just have awesome names.
- Jake Butt - TE, Michigan - The jokes are too easy, but he did land a toilet paper sponsorship.
- Corn Elder - CB, Miami - Not enough people named Corn in the world.
- Eddie Vanderdoes - DT, UCLA - Vanderdoesitall.
- Erik Magnuson - OT, Michigan - This has to be the name of an actual Viking. Has to.
No. 5 - Forrest Lamp - OG/C Western Kentucky - Invoking a Best Picture winner and the name of a household appliance. Just tremendous. So good he's already landed an endorsement deal. I love lamp.
No. 4 - Budda Baker - Safety, Washington - Whether you like it for the religion or just the alliteration, it's fantastic.
No. 3 - Tyus Bowser - OLB, Houston - The bad guy in Mario? The photoshops will be tremendous.
No. 2 - Raekwon McMillan - LB, Ohio State - The Chef. Don't mess with the Chef.
No. 1 - Taco Charlton - DT, Michigan - It takes a lot to beat Raekwon, but this is the best draft name in years. Everyone loves a Taco.
