Which NFL Players Would You Pick in an LSAT Fantasy Draft?

Today marks the last week of preseason games in the National Football League. This means National Football League season ticket holders are going through the annual ritual of trying to get rid of the National Football League preseason tickets they’re obligated to buy.

It also means that many National Football League fans are preparing to draft players for their National Football League fantasy teams. The question is, what if you were to draft some of these muscle-heads for an LSAT fantasy team? Let’s explore that idea.

(Since I don’t actually work for the sports media, I’m exempt from the requirement to say the full words “National Football League” as much as possible. I’ll stop now.)

Maybe my hometown bias is showing through, but I’ll start with San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick, one of the most promising young quarterbacks in the league. Why? For his versatility: in his first season last year, he showed that he’s elite among NFL players both at throwing the football and at running it. In last year’s playoffs, he improved on his regular season numbers, averaging nearly 10 yards per pass attempt and more than 10 yards per carry. On the LSAT, this kind of versatility is important. Having mastery of LSAT Logical Reasoning flaws doesn’t do you much good if you’re missing questions left and right in the LSAT Reading Comprehension section.

Second on my list is Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson. On the LSAT, speed is important but not if it comes at the price of accuracy. Rushing through an LSAT section does you no good if you miss questions left and right. And Andre Johnson is fast, but seldom dropped the ball last year: he caught 69% of the balls thrown his way. The result was stellar production even as the Texans relied heavily on him.

One NFL player I wouldn’t pick in an LSAT fantasy draft? Mark Sanchez. For this reason alone. There are some things you know you’ll see on LSAT test day. There’ll for sure be a bunch of flaw, strengthen and weaken questions in the Logical Reasoning sections. As an NFL quarterback, one thing you know you’ll see—make that five things you know you’ll see—are your offensive line’s butts. And if something you should have been expecting makes you fumble, that’s no good. On the LSAT or in football.

What about you? Let us know in the comments who you would (or wouldn’t) select in an LSAT fantasy draft.
