Default How important is NFL draft to you?

Most of you know I am a draft nut but what about you? I really look forward to it and re-arrange my schedule for three days. I have mock boards scattered all over my living room and mark off names as each team selects. I get very hopeful and often P.O. when our picks don't go way I want. I plan meals for each day to allow me to focus on screen. I have at least one sports radio station on and often two radios with different programs. I flip back and forth between ESPN & NFL. Cell phones are on vibrate and I usually disregard calls. Plus I have the TT MB up and running. I also do a lot of pacing.

I think this draft could be the most significant in recent history but am concerned that our #26 will not be a happy one for me.

Describe your "war room" or if you even watch.

I enjoy the ever-lovin' shyte out of the draft and everything that leads up to it.

My watch room is same as for games -- big screen & big laptop nearby. I DVR NFLN & ESPN and I always get pissed when the commentary skips over the Texans pick in depth analysis in favor of the "popular" teams. I'll be following Twitter this year, too -- see what value is added there.

I don't often get upset at picks -- although Cushing over Clay Matthews burned my butt.

I watch the draft but don't follow college sports too much so the later rounders are a usually a bit of a blur to me.

I don't have friends over as don't want the distraction. Like with the games a whole lot of non-football stuff going on. Last year a group of us were watching Texans and cooking out by lakeside pool. A female neighbor kept running her mouth about her Cowboys which was bad enough but almost everything she said was not correct or accurate. The drunker she got the worse she became. Her husband got drunk even quicker but at least he was silent except when he rolled out of the lawn chair and busted himself. 2 guys had to carry him home.

aussie make sure you post your final thread by draft day.

I have been following the draft since the days when you could only get the results on monday in the newspaper. I started having big parties on draft saturday when I was finally able to see it on ESPN. And then along comes Goodell. This guy is slowly ruining the game of football. Pretty soon the players will be wearing flags. When he moved the draft from saturday and sunday to thursday/friday/saturday he pi$$ed off a lot of fans. The draft was a much bigger event for fans than it is now. Now you can flip back and forth between the draft and your wife's favorite primetime show. Instead of an event that meant an all day party it is now a channel flipper for alot of fans that used to dedicate their entire saturday to it.

Of course I'm still a hardcore fan that watches all 3 days but the average fan got lost in the whole switch of days

I can't imagine the hotel not having cable/ESPN so you should be good Friday evening.

I love the draft, I get more gifts on draft day than Christmas and B-day combined.

Me too.

Sometimes I think people on this MB spend more time studying the draft than Rick does.

Remember Garys elective surgery during the combine? Follwed by a 5-11 season?

The draft was the highlight of the year when we were not winning. Now, coming off a playoff season, the draft is not as exciting as it once was. Also, with the Texans picking 26th it's even harder for me to get really excited about the draft. I'll follow it and watch it of course, but not with the fervor as some of you. The upcoming season is what's really exciting to me now that the Texans are going places!

Wow, not for me. Have to dig so much deeper into players game film and combine as there are so many more options. We are almost at the BPA each round than ever before. I do agree that actual season is 10 X better than draft because the season goes on so much longer.

The first couple of days are fun for sure. The mid-late round picks are very important and can really make or break a draft but i don't usually know many of the players involved so i can't get excited about anything.

The draft is like Christmas in April, you get presents but you don't get to pick which ones. I watch in the bedroom so I won't be botherd so much and make mental notes as the draft goes on. I get mad when one of my favorite players that I know would be great as a Texan gets picked by someone else. I immediately start checking out a player when we pick someone I'm not familiar with. My wife hates draft time.

I've said exactly this for years. For as long as I can remember I have followed it. I'm typically pretty cheap ,but starting in February I make pilgramages to various book stores scooping up any draft publication I could find. Most years I could make it to about the 6th round before a player I wasnt familiar with got drafted.

I am that guy who got mad about 6th and 7th round picks when I felt there was better value on the board. And I am the guy who is so intent on finding out our pick that I can remember cussing ESPN every single year for their "The Texans pick is up, go to commecial" habbit.
