Amish draft expert nails pre-draft predictions


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

As I wrote Friday, I visited my parents in rural Ohio before driving to the Buffalo Bills' headquarters for the NFL draft.

My folks are surrounded by Amish families. One of their neighbors is emerging Amish draft expert Eli Yoder. He trotted his buggy up the driveway just before I hit the road Saturday and imparted some predictions I shared before the draft began.

I thought it would be fun to review his prophecies. Yoder is a carpenter by trade. I think it's fair to say he nailed them.

Next year, I'll start hitting him up for info a lot earlier.
