Wow

Normally, the NFL Draft is a bit of an insider’s broadcast. After the first round selections, the repetition begins to overwhelm interest in watching—in effect—the NFL’s annual ‘Groundhog Day.’

But this year’s NFL Draft wasn’t entirely normal, aside from the Cleveland Browns wasting another #1 pick. There was a very special guest announcer.

That seemingly casual-looking walk is a wonderful showcase of the power of sports.

Pittsburgh Steeler and Ohio State Buckeye Ryan Shazier, who has been recovering from a spinal injury from last December, is living proof of the inspirational nature of the human spirit. Even writing the words “spinal injury” sends a paralyzing chill through one’s body. That pain and accompanying fear are unimaginable for anyone who has not experienced that kind of living hell.

Forget the draft picks, over-saturated analysis and the newly minted millionaires this year. If you remember one thing from the 2018 NFL Draft, remember Ryan Shazier for his movement off the football field.
