    Question NFL Draft - Yay or Nay?

    With all the NFL Draft talk on the radio this last week or two I'm wondering if I'm the only one who doesn't really get all that excited about it. I am obviously interested in who my team drafts but I don't need to spend my day watching every second of the draft on t.v. I could read about it in the paper the next day and that's good enough for me. Anyone else feel this way?

    I'll have it on all weekend as background. I'd like to be watching when Cyclones get picked up. Thank god for the NFL network.


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    I was excited until the Vikings gave up their 1st round pick.

    You're not going to see any Cyclones drafted if you only watch the first two rounds.

    Yeah I like seeing ISU guys get picked too but it still doesn't make me all giddy to hear 50 different people's predictions.

    Re: NFL Draft - Yay or Nay?

    There's obviously a market for those talking heads to give their predictions. People like to play out different scenarios and how things could play out. I love it all.

    Re: NFL Draft - Yay or Nay?

    I can watch it some but it gets painful to wait what seems like 20 minutes between picks sometimes.

    The previous time between picks was 15 minutes. The NFL has reduced it to 10 minutes in the first round, and I believe it is 5 minutes every round after that. It can extend passed those times, though, if a trade is made. Once the pick is traded, the clock starts again.

    Re: NFL Draft - Yay or Nay?

    I agree it just takes too long for the the first few rounds. Even though the teams are spending millions and they need to make sure they are getting the right guy they could speed it up a little. I can almost gurantee that Miami will take their full amount of time to select Jake Long who they have already have said they will select and signed. I don't really care on the second day except for my favorite team

    Re: NFL Draft - Yay or Nay?

    In related news, Goodell said the other day on Mike&Mike that he is very interested in looking into a salary cap on rookies. This is much needed because the money teams are forced to invest into these unknown commodities in the first round is getting out of hand.

    Re: NFL Draft - Yay or Nay?

    gah it's horrible.

    The only thing I really like is the first round picks tanking later and the diamonds in the rough, but none of that really kicks in until about 3 or 4 years after the draft.

    So I'm enjoying the 2004 draft right about now.
