sabby21.jpgThe NFL Draft is this weekend and I need an ice-cold shower after reading the profiles of the draftees on NFL.com. The analysis of their bodies had me thinking I had stumbled instead onto Craigslist M4M postings.

A Craigslist post would have someone describing their “sexy and defined body with a tight bubble.” Leave out “sexy” and the NFL.com profiles aren’t much different (but certainly more accurate than most personals descriptions). Take this 2007 look at Sabby Piscitelli, a safety from Oregon State drafted by Tampa Bay:

Has a defined, angular frame with the growth potential to add more bulk without any decrease in his impressive quickness … Possesses a V-shaped torso with a well-defined upper body, good bubble, developed calves and good chest thickness.

Pretty hot. All that is needed is a Santonio Holmes shower shot and you have your typical Manhunt or Big Muscle posting. Here are some my favorite descriptions of this year’s draft class:
