Mel Kiper has been ESPN’s NFL Draft guru longer than many of us have been alive. But behind Kiper’s draft expertise and that incredible head of hair is a gift even more remarkable.
A bladder made of stainless steel.
NFL producer Seth Markman tweeted out this little nugget the morning of the first round that seems like a great UberFacts candidate:

Do you know how long those draft broadcasts are?!? Especially in the early days of the draft when it wasn’t broken up over three days??
