    The draft is less than a week away, and team war rooms are buzzing in anticipation of the event. General managers and scouts are finalizing their strategies and putting together contingency plans for all of the various scenarios that could potentially transpire during the draft.

    Re: What goes on inside draft war rooms shapes the NFL landscape

    Draft day decisions change the league like no other. Just think if the texans took Bush instead of Mario and how different things would be now. Every team, you could argue, is affected by each draft pick.
    And this is probably why so many people care so hard about it. I know I will be watching every pick of the draft on the weekend and making tons of posts on the site about it.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Man i would love to be able to just sit inside a war room. It doesn't even have to be the Vikings. Hell i would even sit inside the packers just to see what happens and get the experience.

    Re: What goes on inside draft war rooms shapes the NFL landscape

    Too often, scouts and coaches fall in love with a prospect after watching him perform at the scouting combine or his pro day.
    I don't. I know a few on here do.
    ;D

    Thus, it is up to the general manager to keep the coaches and scouts focused on taking the best “football player” on the board, not the best athlete.

    What a excellent read my friend.
    Thanks....

    Free agency starts before the draft ends
    Each year, a handful of undrafted players makes a splash in the league, and you may be surprised to learn that the process of securing those overlooked talents starts well before the draft ends.
    We seem to bring in some very interesting prospects of late in this area.


    On a side note, if you have time, the following book is pretty insightfull.
