No WR picked by the Eagles in the draft this year. The Eagles also didn't resign Donte Stallworth. Anyone else seeing a pattern?

I have always been a world-class anything. I grew up in Colorado where I basically just excelled. Period. Skiing. Football. Being a kick-ass human being. Anyway, I played college football at the University of Colorado. I scored every time I touched the ball -- as expected. Then, the NCAA (Not Cool Association of Anything) said I couldn't play football anymore because I accepted sponsorship money to continue my world-dominating skiing career.
So, naturally, I gathered all the best lawyers on planet Earth to bring the NCAA (Non-Cool Arrogant A-holes) to their collective knees. I lost. Conspiracy? Well, let me ask you: Heard of the JFK assassination? Area 51? Nothing compared to my case.
Well, I went on my way. Became a model. Skied in the Olympics. I injured my hamstring. Whatever. I still call bullshit on that one. I'm still trying to figure out how that gold medal was kept from me. Thinking of suing.
Then, I just trotted over the to NFL combine and blazed through the workouts. I held back. I had to. Can you imagine what would have happened if I didn't? #1 overall pick, yo. I held back on the trip there. I wanted to swim or ski there. My abs would have done most of the work anyway. My abs have their own agent. More on that in another post. I purposely pulled up in the 40. Seriously, breaking the 4 second mark would have just embarrassed a lot of people and I'm not one to toot my own horn (beep beep).
Result: The Eagles drafted me...I sat out (their idea, not mine) and the 2007 season will be my first. The NFL draft is this weekend. Through three rounds the Eagles have not drafted a WR or return specialist. No need.

Welcome to my blog. I'm Jeremy Bloom. You may know me as a football star. Perhaps as a world-class skier? Oh, you know me as the model, Jeremy Bloom. Anyway, I'm all of the above. I am currently a receiver/return-specialist/model for the Philadelphia Eagles. I spent the 2006 season on Injured Reserve due to a hamstring injury which was total crap because I can heal myself at will. The Eagle top-brass didn't see it that way. Whatever.
