Lil Wayne Blogs His Top 5 NFL Draft Picks From Prison
When Lil Wayne promised that he would keep up-to-date with the outside world while he completed his prison sentence, there was no reason to doubt him. Earlier this month, the incarcerated MC launched his new blog WeezyThanxYou.com, from Rikers Island, with his first post thanking fans for their support. That out of the way, Weezy has now turned focus to his second favorite topic — sports.
In his most recent entry, dated Wednesday, April 14, the ESPN fanatic weighed in on the major developments in the world of sports. Weezy’s first order of business was to address the Philadelphia Eagles’ recent decision to trade their quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins.
“McNabb to the Skins … wow!” Weezy wrote. “I think this will be a great thing for all involved, except the Eagles. One reason is because I don’t think Andy Reid was ready to part ways with the soon-to-be 34-year-old veteran. He still had a year left on paper with the Eagles. And though I don’t think they would’ve given him an extension, for some reason I think Andy would’ve liked to see Donovan play it out. I don’t think he was the brains behind that move. I think this was above him.”
And with the NFL draft kicking off on Thursday, April 21, Weezy had to throw in his predictions for the top five contenders this year. “My Top 5 NFL Draft Picks are: 1. Ndamukong Suh /Jimmy Clausen. 2. Gerald McCoy. 3. Eric Berry. 4. Dez Bryant. 5. Russell Okung,” he wrote.
After his thorough football analysis, Wayne made sure to send out congratulations to the winners of this year’s NCAA basketball tournament. “Congrats to Duke & Coach K, as well as UCONN women and gents,” he wrote. “I think both of those guys need new day jobs. More complicated ones. NBA, WNBA!”
