It’s about that time of the year… time for the annual NFL Draft drinking game brought to you by Loaded Box!

Have you been planning accordingly this offseason? And by that I mean, have you been steadily having a few drinks each and every night so that your body is prepared to hold up for what you’re going to put it through during the NFL Draft?

Not everyone views the draft as a drinking occasion, but for those of us that do, you’ve come to the right place. Just like years in the past, sometimes you’ll drink once, sometimes twice, sometimes you’ll have to finish your drink – and on the rare occurrences – you’ll have to break out the bottle.

Go ahead and share this with your friends and make sure everyone you know that enjoys having a few (too many) drinks during the draft is on the same level as you.

So with that… let’s get loaded!

Take one drink every time the following happens:

  • Someone is selected. I mean, we’re here to drink, right?
  • They show the city of Las Vegas/The Strip during the broadcast
  • The TV broadcast shows Mel Kiper Jr. and you find yourself hoping you’ve got that quality of salad when you become his age (he’s 61 now!)
  • You see a prospect wearing sunglasses inside
  • Commissioner Roger Goodell stumbles over the pronunciation of a player’s name

Take two drinks every time the following happens:

  • Any time a team is making its second (or third, or fourth…) pick of the first round
  • Whenever a player from a non-power-5 school is selected
  • A wide receiver is selected in the top 10
  • A defensive player from Georgia is selected
  • An NFL Draft analyst labels a prospect as a “high-character” player. Double it if they question a player’s character

Finish your drink every time the following happens:

  • A trade occurs
  • If Kyle Hamilton slips out of the top 10
  • Kenny Pickett’s hand size is discussed
  • The TV broadcast shows footage of Malik Willis helping the homeless person outside of Lucas Oil Stadium during the NFL Scouting Combine
  • The draft starts out with three straight selections of defensive players

Break out your favorite hard liquor and take a shot every time the following happens:

  • Your favorite team makes a selection (have fun Jets, Giants, Eagles, Saints, Lions, Chiefs, Packers and Texans fans)
  • Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner is selected (we’ve gotta keep up the theme of taking a shot when the prospect with the coolest name that’s expected to go in the first round is picked!)
  • No quarterbacks are selected in the top-six picks
  • If both Chris Olave & Garrett Wilson are selected in the top 15
  • Jameson Williams is selected. I mean c’mon, he was literally named after a whiskey!
