I'm sorry to say this to all of you, but I think that the NFL (and NBA and NHL and MLB for that matter)draft is the biggest waste of human man hours this side of the E! channel. ESPN has created a monster with thousands of hours of lead-up's, mock drafts, discussion shows, etc... In a way, they have manufactured interest in something that isn't interesting. The lead-up means nothing.
My approach to the NFL draft is the same that I have with the NCAA selection show and the lead up to it. I will pick up a USA Today on the following Monday and learn just as much about what happened as everyone who spent hundreds of precious hours reading speculative content.
I understand the attachment that people have with their college heroes and their NFL teams. I get that. My wife is an OSU nut (no pun intended), so she will be interested to see where the people who have been major parts of her life end up. However, she learns that by reading the paper the next day, not by watching Todd McShay say that James Laurinitis is falling down the draft board two months before the draft ever happens.
I know that many of you will be watching this today, and that is fine, it is your decision. But, I would like to know what draws you to it.
