The NFL Draft has reached a whole new level of absurdity this year.

Deemed unworthy of even being televised 40 years ago, this year’s event will be hosted in the 100,000-person monstrosity that is AT&T Stadium, broadcast in prime time on not one, not two but FOUR separate TV channels and span as many days.

As such, we had to up our annual NFL draft drinking game to match the magnitude of the 2018 NFL Draft.

For old time’s sake, the drinking game is based off ESPN’s broadcast instead of the NFL Network’s broadcast being simulcast on FOX or the ESPN2 College GameDay broadcast.

* This game is for comedic purposes. If you play it with alcohol, don’t be a moron: Know your limit and never, ever, ever drink & drive.
