Draft Officially set for April 23-25

Recommended Posts

Actually relieved about this although I will miss the draft night interviews and outrageous suits.

Can’t wait to see the live shot of Joe D and Gase in Gases basement with a couple of whiteboards.

This is great give the people something to watch in the sports world and no one has to be close to each other. This and fa will help take are minds off of this fing virus for a couple of hours. Plus at least we don’t have to see some jets fan make a fool of them self when the picks are made.

Gase walking into the basement "war room" like....

 

"Let's get me some wide receivers!"

Btw FYI the ACC channel is showing many games from the 2019 season it looks like 24/7. I checked the schedule for the next few days at least and there is back to back to back football😀.

Any disadvantage if say Giants/Jets/Eagles are operating out of their basements with only a few people around, vs some other teams who may have access to their facility by then? I can see some leniency with clocks and getting trades in on time given the various potential setups.

 

I liked the idea floated by Schefter and Connor Rogers to break the draft further (e.g. 1st round day 1, 2nd round, day 2; 3-4th rounds day 3; 5-7 day 4).  Might also give teams some more time to prepare.

No real reason why they can’t have the draft.  Just do it without a crowd or even players showing up just have Goodell announce the picks live on tv

I guess teams can conduct further interviews through video chat but holy hell with the medicals and psych evals now. Jets better play each pick very, very safe.

The NFL is smart. They have the whole sports "world" to themselves. No baseball, no NHL, no NBA just them. Maximum exposure, maximum viewership. Why mess with that ?

This is one unique year if the NFL offseason has ever had one. No private workouts or any of the physical evaluations. This provides a challenge I don’t think any of us have ever seen NFL teams have to go through. It’ll be interesting to see how GM’s play it with the minimal contact with draft prospects.

It’s a built in excuse, but honestly I think it’s going to work out.

Instead of falling in love with guys for arbitrary reasons during the weeks leading up to the draft, teams are going to be forced to draft guys based on tape, production, and external research. 
 

Does anyone remember when Tannenbaum fell in love with Stephen Hill because he wore a suit to his meeting?

In all honesty I think we should send them all to NY to get infected. They'll be fine. Let them give up that blood plasma which is the best treatment. I'm 90% sure I caught it. I'll give mine if they'll test me to prove it

Theyll have a 30 for 30 on this draft one day as the only sporting event that people could look forward to.

I'll bump this in 6 years or so.

Maybe Gase makes an appearance this year. Last year it was like he was staying locked up in his bedroom crying under his bed.

I love how in the exhibition games he's happy go lucky jokester sniffing the sauce cracking jokes. Yet when it mattered most he sulks with a blank stare on the sidelines failing to convert on 3rd and 3s. Not saying 1 word to anyone..

Don't forget no pro day workouts. The kids who sat out the combine or didn't get an invite are going to become risky picks

Thank you. This gives me something to look forward to. I thought it would have been a mistake to postpone this. People need something to enjoy and talk about that isn't COVID-19 related.

Just my opinion.

This type of crap is getting exhausting.  Everyone now knows the virus outbreak is a very serious situation.  

If they can pull it off while meeting all the safety measures set in place, why shouldn't they do it?

I'll personally welcome the semblance if normalcy brought on by the joy I get from sports.  

Edit:. Bad choice of phrasing to say "anyone with a pulse".  Removed that part.

Conducting the draft will be no different than what many of us experience every day working from home during this outbreak.

So does the NFL call Douglas on his home phone asking what’s the pick? 
“Get off the damn phone son! We gotta pick Juedy!”
