Yes, I spend a lot of time watching it. Yes, I always hope that the teams I like to watch, the ones I like to root for if they are televised, the Seahawks (the closest thing we have here to a local time), the 49ers (a team I’ve loved for a long time) and the Cardinals (a team I just have a soft spot for).
Each of those teams has had a good – but not great – draft this year. I think the Seahawks made a reach with their first pick because the kid has a lot of off-field problems, though he has a lot of talent. We’ll see how that works out.
It’s interesting hearing what the various gurus have to say about the players, keeping in mind they like to say good stuff when they can, feed the hope, and hope is really what the draft is all about. I watched the whole media circus the first night, then it calms down on the second day, today for the last rounds it’s pretty much just analysis, which is what I wish the entire three day broadcast did. Still it’s on in the background as I continue to do other things, and I can always catch up on the whole thing with both the NFL channel and ESPN on-line.
So do you watch, and if so, how’d your team do?
