Happy anniversary, Mel Kiper Jr.

On this day 28 years ago, the longtime ESPN NFL Draft analyst ripped the Indianapolis Colts for twice passing on quarterback Trent Dilfer.

Kiper was furious with the Colts decision, though Indianapolis' front office seemed annoyed by the ESPN NFL Draft analyst.

"Who in the hell is Mel Kiper anyway?" then-Colts GM Bill Tobin said.

Kiper has gone on to become the most-popular NFL Draft analyst of all-time.

"To be fair, Trent Dilfer won the same amount of SBs as Peyton Manning so," one fan joked.

"Mel Kiper really living rent free in this dude’s head," another fan tweeted.

"Imagine Twitter then holy s--t it would have been electric," one fan added on Twitter on Sunday morning.

The 2022 NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday, April 28. Perhaps we'll get another spicy moment or two featuring Kiper.
