WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Draft day can be stressful enough as players anxiously await their name to be called – a moment they’ve dreamt about their entire lives – but with the process now spanning three days, that stress can become painful; that dream can become a nightmare when projections fail to meet reality.
Geno Smith wasn’t the only guy left waiting during the 2013 NFL Draft.
Before the Redskins selected safety Bacarri Rambo in the sixth round, the Georgia Bulldog was projected as a third- to fourth-round pick. He was waiting so long to be drafted that by the time he got the call from Washington, he was “kind of asleep,” as he put it in his interview with the Junkies Monday.
Cakes: How relieved were you when you finally got the call from the Redskins in the sixth round? Did you think ‘You know what? I might not get drafted. I might have to go the Free Agent route.’ Take us through the call that you got and how relieved you were when you got it.
Rambo: I was very relieved. I thought everybody had forgot about me. But I was kind of asleep when i got the call from the Redskins organization, but it’s just a blessing to get that phone call. I’m just thankful and I’m going to get in there and go to work and try to help out the team as much as I can.
