I just wonder if Goodell thinks the younger fans (the 18 to 30-yr-old crowd) will be out on the town and not near a TV.

On a Thursday night, your ass will be in front of a TV about 99% of the time throughout the year. I think it's the law of averages that made them choose Thursday night. What show on a Thursday night historically draws enough eyeballs of the NFL viewer demographic? None, IMO.

Goodell could really mess with people if he started the draft in reverse. Round 7 is first, on Thursday night, and you can only draft from a certain pool of players...saving the cream of the crop for Saturday's 1st round. LOL. Man oh man would heads explode.
yeah the nfl already gives players an idea where they can be expected to be drafted so those would be selected from round computer identifies. Maybe allow the first four rounds to be the usual way. Lordy, i am bored.

In 2004, we had 6 draft picks in the 5-7th round, 1 contributed a little. (Charlie Anderson, left off the guys list.)

In 2005, we had 3 picks in the 5-7th round, 1 contributed.

In 2006, we had 2 picks in the 5-7th round, 2 contributed.

In 2007, 4 picks, 2 contributed to us. A third, Brandon Frye, started some games for the Seahawks. And Brandon Harrison also contributed, although not much.

In 2008, 3 picks, 1 contributed.

I think it's important to see the hit to miss ratio over the years.
but didn't some of those years involve trading current low rounds to teams for a bump up following year? I thought there were 2-3 seasons where we traded 6th or 7th for following year 5th or 6th.

I'm not sure what the trades were but if you look at the picks we had:

2002: 1 1, 2 2s, 2 3s, 1 4, 2 5s, 2 6s, 2 7s.
2003: 1 1, 1 2, 3 3s, 1 4, 2 6s, 2 7s
2004: 2 1s, 1 4, 3 6s, 3 7s
2005: 1 1, 1 3, 1 4, 1 5, 1 6, 1 7

I wasn't following the draft very closely back then. Did the league give us extra picks in 2002? In 2004, we didn't have a 2nd, a 3rd, or a 5th (after trading up for Babin, iirc.) But look at all those 6s and 7s.

2003 is the real changeup though, with 3 3s but no 5. I have a feeling a 6 and a 7 that year were probably compensatory picks.

By 2005, we have a more normal pick distribution. But those first three years, we've got an ungodly number of 6s and 7s.
