You know Andrew Luck. You know Robert Griffin III. You probably know a few other players. But unless you're a devoted college football fan and/or a draftnik, you likely haven't memorized all the important names from Thursday's NFL draft.
That's where Playbook Visuals comes in. You see,
memory experts say the best way to memorize names and/or words is to tie them to an image. Example:
Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon: ...Spike Lee, a.k.a. Mars Blackmon. Mike Coppola/FilmMagic
So that's what we're doing, with several more highly ranked players in 2012. Happy remembering...
