For the 2013 NFL draft The Draw Play and Draftpedia partnered up to create cartoon versions of every first round pick, and some extras! For this project, I tried to draw as many possible players projected as possible first rounders. I ended up drawing about 50, for 32 picks, and live tweeted them out as the draft happened, then colored in the remainder of the players as they got picked in the later rounds. But up first, round 1, in order:
That was the entire first round. However, since I had a backlog of players drawn but not yet picked, I decided to color the rest of them anyway when they did get picked, no use in wasting completed art. So the rest of the players I had drawn are as follows, in the order they were drafted:
Sadly due to Bill Belichick trading out of the first round, I ended up drawing literally zero Patriots picks. I also drew no Redskins picks, because they had no first rounder due to the RG3 trade. The Seahawks had no first rounders, but Jesse Williams fell all the way to the 5th, and thankfully he was the last player I drew. However, when I missed the 3 picks in round 1, I was prepared. So when those picks were called, I tweeted these:
I got a lot of folks asking on twitter to make more players. I’m okay with doing a few more, but overall this was 50+ players in a weeks time, and my arm needs a rest. Let me know near the end of the week on Thursday or Friday.
