    This thread is much like the game day threads from the bullpen...Basically, post your thoughts as you're watching the 2005 NFL draft...More than any year in recent memory, this draft has been a difficult one to figure out...Let's hope our boy Cass gets a steal or two...

    After months of overanalyzation, it's finally here! :woot :headbang: :dance:

    Cass definitely has a trick or two up his sleeve...I forecast a 100% chance he'll make at least one pick that leaves up looking like this: :um: ...

    So who does everyone think is gonna be the top overall pick? Alex Smith seems to be the concensus pick, but there are claims that it's all a smokescreen...I think what ends up happening is San Fran takes Alex Smith and then trades him to Tampa Bay and then they select Aaron Rodgers at 5, but that's just my lil prediction :whistle: ...

    I saw a mock last night that had Rodgers falling all the way to Green Bay at 24. Not saying that means anything but I think lots of people are down on him and his stock has really suffered lately.

    I think someone will probably trade up and get him before 24, but he may be in for a long day...Anybody know what the latest a prospect has waited in the green room is?

    It might have been Chris Simms a couple of years ago. Expected to go in the 1st he lasted until the very last pick on the first day.

    Simms was in the green room in 2003? From what I remember, nobody had him pegged to be a high first rounder, but maybe nobody else wanted to be in there idonno:...

    I don't recall Simms being in the green room. Usually the prospects expected to go in the top half of the first round show up in NY. I know Big Ben waited for awhile, and he was the last of the players who made the trip to NY to hear his name called. He looked awfully lonely sitting at that table all by himself.

    You may be right about him not being in the Green Room, but as I recall he was on the ESPN promos back then like they have with Pollack, Smith, Brown etc. this year. And he was bitterly disappointed at going late 3rd.
