ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. won't be on-site for the 2022 NFL Draft tonight. But he offered some insight into how he's "preparing" - starting with the most important meal of the day.
Taking to Twitter this morning, Kiper posted a photo of his breakfast. As he's told people in the past, it consists of a big slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream and a glass of milk.
Draft Day and the days that follow are some of the busiest days of the year for Kiper. It's only appropriate that he be allowed to enjoy his favorite meal before the three long days to come.
NFL fans are a bit mixed on whether to love or loathe the breakfast though. Most are giving him all kinds of props for going with such a bold choice while others find it pretty disgusting. Here are some of the reactions:
Mel Kiper Jr. has been a mainstay of the NFL Draft process for the better part of several decades. He's widely acknowledged as the most authoritative voice in NFL Drafts.
The 2022 NFL Draft will see him doing his analysis from home due to his vaccination status. But everyone is looking forward to seeing him weigh in and predict the big picks.
Maybe he'll help himself to some leftover pie as well.
