    Draft Class Nicknames

    Anyone know the nick names of the draft class? Here's what I could find.

    1. Jarvis - Sacman - not sure I like it
    2. Bell - Chocolate Diamond - Did he leave a surprise in someone's closet? - this one's official but I don't like it. how bout shortening it to CDeez
    3. Wheaton - He reminds me of the breakfast of champions, but couldn't find anything
    4. Shmarko - Shark - makes sense
    4. Landry - Doc Holliday - We're gonna see tshirts saying fear the stache - not sure i like this one
    5. Hawthorne - Swooshy cause of 22 Nike symbols
    6. Brown - JB
    6. V Williams - Bug as in VW Bug
    7. N Williams - Samford and Son

    I need simple ways to refer to these guys. And I'm not typing out Chocolate Diamond.

    "Bell" seems pretty simple

    Jarvis: Meathead (he asked for it with the Subway food statue).

    Bell: Rung (he plows through the hole, and defenders get their bell rung trying to stop him).

    Wheaton: Crusher (I'm not a big Star Trek guy, but I watch the Big Bang Theory, and therefore know from the bowling episode that Wil Wheaton's character name on Star Trek was Wesley Crusher. It's better than referencing Wheaton's character in Stand By Me who pulled a bloody leech from his underwear).

    Shark's good for Shamarko.

    Landry: Fedora (he was named after Tom Landry, after all. Or if folks still carry an anti-Dallas grudge, we can just rename him Noll Jones).

    Hawthorne: Sweet (after the hotel chain Hawthorne Suites).

    Okay, that's probably enough.

    I had no idea Will Wheaton was on star trek. I met him once. Really cool guy. Super big nerd. He looked the same as he did as a kid in Stand By Me but with a beard.

    I also had some beer with the original meat head Jared from Subway. I stayed at a hotel one time in DC while they had their national Subway convention. There were like a million franchise owners at the Gaylord. And I went to have dinner with a couple co workers at one of the pubs and I had no idea I was sitting next to Jared. It was kinda funny that everyone from Subway was almost afraid of him and treated him like a celeb. He wasnt so nice to people from what I remember, but he was friendly to us because we didn't work for Subway.

    Good memories.

    To which Ziggy?












    I'd say he resembles Ziggy Marley the most.

    I would say your correct, but I thought a slight resemblance to Hood too.

    He fits right in with the Melody Makers. Although his Subway replica looks more like Ziggy the cartoon.

    Because it was a former job of his, Wheaton will be Chuck E Cheese for me until he earns something else... the interview was just funny to me...

    Landry Jones makes me think of Tom Landry and Jerry Jones so I'll just refer to him as Tom & Jerry.
