Congratulations to John Skelton, The Sports Section’s New Favorite Athlete

In the fifth round of the Draft Saturday, the Buzzsaw that is Will's Arizona Cardinals drafted quarterback John Skelton out of Fordham, the university that is Joe's alma mater. With Kurt Warner retired, Skelton — the first quarterback from a non-BCS school selected in this year's Draft, and the 155th player selected overall — joins signal callers Matt Leinart, Derek Anderson, and, reportedly, non-drafted free agent Max Hall in Arizona. Skelton became the first Ram selected in the NFL Draft since the Giants picked Kenny Parker in the sixteenth round back in 1968.
