Been fascinated with the draft for a long time. Still miss the old set up but do enjoy talking up the first round all day Friday. Two greatest sports collide.

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.

Default Re: How important is NFL draft to you?

The draft is important to me because it's something new that is happening during the offseason. Like others have said, I don't follow college football much, so who they pick is pretty much always a surprise to me. I enjoy my time on this board reading what others have to say about the draft picks as much as anything else. As always, I get more useful information from this board than I do anywhere else.

I'm probably going to miss most of Saturday's later round picks as I have to drive to Lufkin that day. But I'll read all about here.

Used to really love the old format of Sat/Sun. My sorry azz brother (the Bengals fan) would drive 3 hrs to show up. The living room would have Texan's, Cowboy, 49ers, Steelers fans and plenty of beer. We did this every year and it was great. Lots of good natured ribbing. Draft books and cheat sheets everywhere. A real event that we all would plan every year to attend.

Not so much fun now. We still talk durring picks but just not the same.

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.

I liked the draft better when it was all crammed into two days. The channel never left ESPN or NFLN and I was browsing football forums, discussing picks. I don't like the wait between rounds now, but the draft is still fun. Wish it was the first two rounds in day one though.

Default Re: How important is NFL draft to you?

I preferred the 2-day draft, too. I watch pretty much every second of the draft.

Normally, I've got a bunch of spreadsheets with the players and my notes on them and where I think they should go and which ones might be a fit for us. I like to speculate on which positions/picks we're going to make. I like watching which players are falling to us that I think we could want.

I've had a really rough work schedule this year and I haven't done any research. I'll still follow the whole thing on the TV and on this board but I really don't know the players this year. So I'll just try to figure it out as I go along.

BTW, I prefer to be alone with just my TV and my computer during this process. I don't need any distractions.

Love it, but it's not that important. I'll watch it anyways, regardless, or at least keep up with our picks. And I liked it better when it was a two day draft and not three. But that doesn't stop me from watching.

Of course if you're into breaking down game film you'll enjoy the draft.
and you're right about there being a lot more options for the Texans to pick from, so that raises the level of speculation even more. Personally, I'm not into analyzing game film and I don't have the time I once used to so I'm not very familiar with a lot of these players. Don't get me wrong, the draft is still an exciting event but the season is better.

Hahaha if you only knew me, you would realize how untrue and funny that is. I have very little to no social life. For the past 2 years my entire focus has been on finishing my phd. I spend at least 6 days a week in lab and I keep this forum on just so that I can think about something else for a change instead of why all of my experiments are failing. Lol.

Default Re: How important is NFL draft to you?

For me it was the 2006 NFL draft. I didn't really pay that much attention before then. While I looked into who the Texans took, I didn't really follow the draft all that much. After the Texans got to the mid point of the 2005 season, it was pretty obvious they were gonna get a really high pick. It became more fun to watch college football and see who could help the team than pay as much attention to the Texans. Watching the draft was an obvious extension. I loved it!

However, I also realized that the more i put into my draft prep, the more I would enjoy the actual draft. So, in 2007 I did my very first Texans mock on the about.com football message board. I began honing my skills and was pointed to this website by a friend of mine in 2010. The mocks here are markedly better than other ones I find becuase they are full of explanations. Rather than simply listing a player, most mocks here come with reasoning, analysis, and an explanation. Coming here and reading the mocks as made me love the draft that much more.

I could have posted this almost to the letter. The exception being that I do watch the occasional college game but because I like football, not because I follow any particular players/team/conference.

Watching the responses on this board during the draft is especially entertaining (some of the implosions are priceless ) and educational since the draftniks often post links to videos and mock sites that favor the players we draft or the ones they think we should have drafted.

The draft is like Christmas for me and I get to be a little kid again. Not sure what players the FO will put under the tree, though I hope they fill the voids. I have made my wish list..sometimes I'm right..usually not though...3 days of the NFL Draft..it gives me hope for the up coming season.

Draft is good then I have to go through withdrawal until training camp. Of course college is a nice fix. Too many college teams have softies scheduled first so many of those I don't watch. I get to watch some Texas teams re-load rosters after losing a few players. Houston and Baylor come to mind. Also will focus on Wisconsin after losing most of their Oline.
