Husker fan Joseph Hayes and friends were there to witness Round 1 of the NFL draft at Radio City Music Hall. Click on the photo below, then click on the "next" tab that appears when you place your mouse pointer over the expanded image. There are a dozen in all. Joseph's comments appear below.
I just made it back from the NFL draft, and as promised, I took several pictures that I'd like to share with Husker Nation.
A bit about the process. I lined up at 8pm outside of Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday evening to get a wristband (that was given out near midnight) to get a ticket the following day. Process is a bit absurd and confusing. The next day I returned and had to wait in another line for over an hour before finally being let in.
In the end it was all worth the wait, tired legs, and sleepless night. Suh didn't disappoint. In fact, he received far more cheers than any other pick. And what was even more impressive was that he didn't receive one boo--very noteworthy for an event that seems to be based on putting down one's opponent.
If you wouldn't mind giving photo credits to the following people: Andy Herink, Adam Emerton, Joe Hoffman, and Jonathan Hayes (they used my camera to shoot some of the photos.)
