NFL Draft: Round 1 Drinking Game

The NFL draft begins tonight! The Seahawks don’t have a pick, so I see no reason for any 12s who are watching the first round to remain sober if they don’t want to. So why not grab your favorite adult beverage and play along with the 12th Man Rising official draft drinking game?

The rules are simple. See the below notes on when to drink and how much. The game is designed with beer or wine in mind. If you’re drinking something stronger, adjust the amounts accordingly.

*please note that 12thMR does not endorse excessive drinking. Please drink responsibly.

Take a Sip

  • Kiper use the phases “value pick,” “reach,” “best available,” or “need pick.”
  • Someone mentions any of the following players:
    • Jamarcus Russell
    • Brett Farve
    • Alex Smith
    • Akili Smith
    • Robert Griffin
    • Andrew Luck
    • Mark Sanchez
    • Tim Tebow
  • Some uses one of the draft buzzwords:
    • upside
    • motor
    • raw
    • polished
    • project
    • tweener
    • explosive
    • first-step
    • intangibles
    • game speed
    • catch radius
    • production

Drink Once

  • Any time someone mentions Kiper’s hair
  • One commentator compliments another on their suit
  • Any time Aaron Rogers is mentioned in reference to players who are still in the Green Room
  • Kiper uses one the phrases: “signature win” or “signature game”
  • If Kiper or McSay interrupt interrupt someone.

Drink Twice

  • There is a trade of draft picks
  • The fans boo a draft pick
  • Someone suggests the Lions take a WR
  • Someone uses the phrase <find/finding> “the next Russell Wilson”
  • Anytime a player is picked whom the pundits claim has “character issues”

Finish It!

  • Any reports of NFL players being arrested
  • Kiper admits he was wrong about any of Pete Carroll’s drafts

    It kind of irritates me when they say, “who’s going to be the next Russell Wilson.” I mean how many guys are like Russell? He’s one of a kind, and the Seahawks have caught lightning in a bottle. The football gods have finally been good to Seahawk Nation and I for one, as a lifelong Seahawk fan am very thankful.

    I can’t wait for draft and John Schneider to kick some ass! As Russell would say, “the separation is in the preparation.” And no one is more prepared than John Schneider and company. Let the draft games begin! Go Hawks!

      But I don’t think they mean it like you’re taking it. The question really is, who’s going to be the next ‘overlooked’ guy that shocks everybody by outperforming the stereotype, ya know? I mean, before Russell, it was someone else. And I don’t even necessarily think that people are always talking about a QB when they use the phrase, just talking about being that guy that nobody saw coming.

        Your right. I was looking at it from like they were saying who’s going to be that next great natural born leader thats going to turn their team into contenders. The type of player that makes everyone around them better. I mean these type of guys, as we know in Seattle, don’t grow on trees. But now I see what your saying. Thank you, your right and I will try not to get irritated when they say that anymore.

    “The fans boo a draft pick”

    seems like last year the strong contingent of Jets fans spectacularly booed every pick but their own. this game is going to get seahawks nation irresponsibly drunk.

    • Buzzed

      Got to know when to say when.

        hahahaha. True, true

    • 12thMan_Rising

      In most years, the team’s who’s picks get booed are the Jets, Redskins, Eagles and Cowboys. I always took that to mean the building was filled with Giants fans. You’re right about last year though. Seemed like over half the picks were booed.

    Keith, you should’ve added something for if Trufant gets drafted in the first. With all the Husky fans here… Like if he gets drafted it’s a drink. If he goes in the top 20 it’s drink twice. If he goes to the 49ers FINISH IT cause that’ll be the worst!! LOL BOOOO Niners!

    • 12thMan_Rising

      Trufant to the 49ers would suck. he’s too good to play in the bay-area.
