One week to the draft...it's time for 2009 NFL Draft Haikus!

All you need to know is that the first line needs 5 syllables, the second line needs 7 syllables, and the third line needs 5 syllables. If you think up a 17 syllable scouting report about an NFL prospect, you can make a draft haiku. Post 'em here!

Here are some examples:

Alex “Big” Mack Snaps
To “Big” Ben Roethlisberger.
Two Large Hamburgers.

Max Unger: Center,
Guard, or Tackle? Jack of All
Trades, Master of None?

X-Rated Mock Draft:
At Center, Steelers Get Wood
Too Pornographic?

Jarron Gilbert Can
Jump Out of a Pool to Sack
Romo in Cabo.

Vontae and Vernon
Davis: Both Athletic Freaks
But Have Ten Cent Heads

Is Ron Brace the Next
Great Nose Tackle or Just Good
Playing With Raji?

Guard Herman Johnson:
Louisiana’s Biggest
Baby. Large Man Too.

Sean Smith to Steelers?
Is He Another Mel Blount?
Or the Next Scott Shields?

Please take some linemen
Don't waste picks on skill players
Please take some linemen!

Washington is gone,
Rookies have a tough first year,
Sign a veteran.

Smith and Simmons gone,
Maxx and Col, one year contracts,
Please take some linemen!

Gary Russell gone,
Power run non-existant,
Please take a fullback.

Draft one week away,
I have no damn idea,
Who we will select.

He who fart in church sit in own pew.

Oh wait, wrong format... :nono

Draft day once again
Have ignored trenches too long
Go big, go ugly

Mike Tomlin's big board,
Kevin Colbert is just plain bored,
Draft the stud center!

I am such a wuss
That's an excellent mock draft
All I ever say


Let's go big ugly
offensive defensive lines
at least 5 draft picks

Don't sweat it there man
All mocks are a waste of time
Not valuable

Teams usually draft
After they sign free agents
Who's our free agent?

Starks, Colon, Deebo
Just to name a few of them
We keep our own guys

Who needs others trash
The formula seems to work
Do not question it

Your first line has one
too many syllables for
the haiku pattern

Every mock draft is
A waste of good cyber space
I hate them always!

Mack Mack Mack Mack Mack
Please take Mack in the first round
If he's on the board

Not true. :Hater

The Little Miss Jigawatt Mock is the best of all because it proves that a three-year-old
knows just as much as the "experts" when the draft is all said and done.

Aaron Smith is down,
Oh No! We are screwed again,
No more skills guys please!

Bonus Superbowl Haiku:

Harrison picked it!
Holy s-h-i-t he's still running!
Oh my God he scored!

Quarterback at One?
Lions Fans Hope Stafford Is
Not Harrington Clone

I Really Hope That
Andre Smith Does Not Run With
His Shirt Off Again

Al Davis Will Not
Draft Crabtree Since He Can’t Run
Forty on Crutches

After Cutler Trade,
Will Denver Move For Sanchez
Or Fix Their Defense?

Peters Gave Up Most
Sacks in the League But Philly
Trades a First For Him.

Giants Want Braylon.
He Won’t Shoot Himself in Leg
Since He’d Drop the Gun.

Steelers Only Get
Fifth Round Comp For Ten Year Vet.
Stupid Formula.

Free agent needed,
Trade for Roscoe in the draft,
Veteran wide-out.

Wait a minute sir.
What about Hartwig and Moore?
Where did they come from?

Generalmente
is the way my buddy says
it in Mexico.

Solitamente
is the way my buddy says
it in Italy

Who am I kidding?
I don't have friends in these parts.
I just googled it.

But I bet there is
a Steelers fan in these parts
who'd be friends with us.
