I've seen a lot of buzz about Chinn.

First 4 rounds all seem excitingly talented. I didn't delve below the 5th round

The 1st any sound amazing. Claypool I'll take.
2nd rd. Well so because Claypool is taken Im going to take that 3rd rd ILB Wilson.
3rd rd. Ill select Hamilton the DT because
4th rd can select Tanner Muse. Dang Ive wound up with 3Def players to 1 Offensive.
Id probably poke around with trades and find an OL to draft. With multiple 5s.
I really dont want to trade down out of 2nd rd and preferably move up in the 2nd or acquire another 3rd. Guess the Claypool pick #1 ruins #2 and on down the line not as appeasing.

Im committed to Claypool and 4yrs with him vs 3 after 1st.
Hope an OL is around for 2nd. Wilson at 3rd.

Extremely likely the Packers take an OL in the first 3 picks.

I wonder what the ratings are going to be for the NFL draft. It's pretty much going to be must watch television at this point, is it not?

The drafts are about as fun as watching paint dry even in the current environment.

I disagree. Yeah, it's slow moving, but people are going to want to glob onto anything that is actually live and non COVID-related, and not streaming on Netflix. People are going to watch the heck out of the draft, in whatever form it takes.

People will be glued to any type of sports event. On top of that, all the large groups that would be at one bar, will now be individual TVs. The ratings will be super bowl level.

I admit to loving the arm-chair QB aspect and hopes the NFL draft brings. My wife still gives me grief about having the draft on while she was in the hospital about to give birth to my daughter (only a 20 year grudge...).

The draft is the only sports event producing relevant news at this point, so I'd imagine people would be glued just because it represents "normal" events.

Yeah I could care less about the crowd or anything else they usually do. Just have the regular studio guys and talk to the players, gm's, coaches through skype if they want. I can't wait.

I wouldn't be surprised if the entire draft is broadcast on ABC. It's going to get enormous ratings. We are still just under 3 weeks away, and people are already begging for anything resembling normalcy. The only live or new source of any legit information is local and national news, and as we all know, most of that is anything but positive. Watching a bunch of NFL talking heads on a glorified Zoom meeting isn't ideal, but 99.9% of sports fans will gladly drink that down like the smoothest IPA you can find.

Yep. I signed up for a free month of WWE Network just to watch Wrestlemania. I haven't given a crap about wrestling since the 90s.

Not draft related, but wanted to alert all Packer fans:

Fox is re-airing Super Bowl XLV in its entirety this afternoon from 2-5 pm. I’m not sure if this is nationwide or just in select markets.

Minneapolis had it on. I caught it from the end of the 3rd quarter through the 4th. Brought a tear to my eye.

Haven’t been following this thread so I apologize if this is already been posted but if you’re looking to kill some time you can have some fun with the draft simulator.

My wife (girlfriend at the time) claims to this day that when the 4th down pass from Big Ben fell incomplete, she went to hug me and I gently nudged her out of the way, to jump into the arms of my best (guy) friend, and sobbed.

I don't totally remember it like that, but I respect her recollections.

And since she still married you, you are wise to "remember" it that way too. [smile]

very similar to fanspeak. ran through it a few times for the packers, not loving what I am seeing available at 30, knowing that these things don't let you move up or down and are based on rankings on one "expert". fun to do, helps you learn about who could be around when the packers pick, but that's about it.

Actually, I didn't think it was too bad.
- First round, all of my preferred WRs were gone, but I had my choice of ILBs Queen or Murray and my preferred OTs Jones and Cleveland. I picked Queen.
- Second round, I just missed out on TE/WR Claypool, but had my selection of WRs DPJ, Aiyuk, and Pittman. I picked DPJ.
- Third round, I saw Ben Bartch; I took Ben Bartch.

Second attempt:
- First: Got Mims this time. Both Queen and Murray were gone. Jones and Cleveland still available.
- Second: Grabbed Cole Kmet. Pittman and DPJ still there.
- Third: Grabbed Troy Dye. Bartch wasn't drafted in the three rounds at all.


Given the first scenario, i would've traded down in the first round, if possible. But i'd be happy with a draft of Queen/DPJ/Bartch. Sure its "need based", but I can't claim to really evaluate DPA either.

In the second (upon retrospect), I would've gone down again with Cleveland lasting to 49. Lots of 2nd round WRs available still. MLBs are pretty weak beyond Queen/Murray.
