More information about Final Jeopardy:

In order to spice up the third day of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that a parrot was going to announce the team’s fourth round pick. It was intended to be University of Pittsburgh safety Jordan Whitehead.

It did not go well.

However, not all animals have been poor choices; the Indianapolis Colts used an orangutan in the fourth round in 2017.

  1. Interesting that one of the first questions today had a correct response of Dodge City, with an incorrect response given of Tombstone. In yesterday’s Final Jeopardy, the correct response was Tombstone, and two incorrect responses were Dodge City.
