    The Draft

    I wanted to post this topic some time ago. I realize the draft has 7 rounds thats elementary...but why the flipping heck do we have 7 rounds when barely those players available in those slots rarely make the team. Yes, i do realize some good players have come from the 6th and 7th rounds but i am a firm believer there should only be 4-5 rounds...comments....?

    I like that idea, and does everybody in the first round really need 15 minutes?

    There are seven rounds because they did away with 5 of the rounds.
    The draft used to be 12 rounds, it was shorten to 7

    As I understand it, they are shortening that next year.

    They were also considering moving the first round to Friday night, but I am not sure if that will happen.

    Basically most people think that the whole process has become wayyyy too drawn out.

    it is i mean 15 minutes??? they should have their boards done they should know who they want to take and teams know who is available and should want to know what they would be willing to give if they were to make a deal ahead of time..they have plenty of time to do this before the draft... 8 minutes should be the time.. plenty of time to hear offers and choose who they want on their board

    Thanks josdin00

    haha ain't that the truth, sad thing is every year when we watch the draft these clowns at ESPN will remind us of the embarassment, but thats why I was so stocked that NFL network covers the draft too now...
