Obviously drafts are hard to predict. It's a matter of who's available, who's affordable, who's best on your board, who fills your needs, and above all, gut instinct. So here is how I expect the drafts to go at my house tonight while I watch the 2011 NFL Draft: 1. Carolina Panthers Sam Adams Boston Lager While some may opt for the flashier beers at the top of the draft, I prefer to go with a safe pick and make my riskier selections on Days 2 and 3. 2. Denver Broncos New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale Since I have already had the best Sam Adams on the Board, all sorts of beers could go in this slot. New Belgium is a relatively new addition to the Food City Create-a-six-pack line, but a reliable one. 3. Buffalo Bills Molson Lite A huge surprise pick here leaves analysts gaping, much like the C.J. Spiller pick last year and the Aaron Maybin pick the year before. Frankly I don't know how this got in my house; I must have picked up the wrong bottle. 4. Cincinnati Bengals Thunderbird Red Wine Like most Bengals picks, you know it's a bad idea. It's going to get you in trouble, and it doesn't even fit with the thread theme. But it's there and nobody else wants it, like most Bengals picks. 5. Arizona Cardinals Guinness Extra Stout The Draft Mock gets back on track with a sold pick. This draft has been on the counter since the afternoon that I might enjoy it properly at room temperature. 6. Cleveland Browns Carolina Blonde A bit of a surprise pick here as everyone expects them to go with a stout. 7. San Francisco 49ers Sam Adams Noble Pils While Noble Pils is by far the lowest-quality Sam Adams Seasonal, sometimes need overcomes proper rankings here and causes me to reach a bit. 8. Tennessee Titans George Killian's Irish Red OR George Dickel White Label Tennessee whiskey The former is the most likely pick, but if we take Jake Locker, I'm going to need the latter, and lots of it.
