What Truly Matters: The Best Names of the 2013 NFL Draft
Loose rhymes do it for me.
18. Zach Ertz (TE)
Starts with a Z, ends with a Z, and gets the whole job done with swift, two-syllable efficiency—exactly what you want from a tight end.
19. Shamarko Thomas (SS)
20. Montori Hughes (DT)
Sounds like a prep school, hits like a large black man.
21. Justin Pugh (OG)
Were Mr. Pugh anything but an offensive lineman he would not have made this list. In the trenches, Pugh!
22. Akeem Spence (DT)
Akeem the Dream !
23. B.W. Webb (CB)
This 6-letter title is comprised of one-half B’s and one-third W’s. Webb’s also a great name for anybody in the business of defending passes.
24. Brian Schwenke (C)
Total Schwenke face.
25. Xavier Nixon (OT)
Any name with 2 X’s is always something to be reckoned with
26. Da’Rick Rogers (WR)
He’s not just Rick, he’s not just The Rick, he’s Da Rick.
27. Levine Toilolo (TE)
Shockingly original, even at this stage in the game.
28. Quinton Dial (DE)
Got a great ring to it.
29. Leon McFadden (CB)
This one just screams football player.
30. Mike Gillislee (RB)
This may just be me, but that last name just sounds slippery-- a great attribute for a running back.
31. Malliciah Goodman (DE)
It’s like Malice + Alicia. Dare you to make fun of his girly name to his face.
32. Marc Anthony (CB)
Did I miss anybody? Probably. As I said, this is a very deep draft. There's a lot of talent to be had in the second and third rounds. Just ask honorable mentions Quanterus Smith and Manase Foketi, who just barely didn't make the cut.
