    I like the timing change - not to thrilled with the draft starting 3 hours later though; although it does work out a little better as I sometimes have kids soccer games Saturday morning. Still, waiting until Noon (I live in CA) isn't too exciting to me.

    I'd personally like to see a draft that began at 10pm ET on Friday night and went until it ended. A night draft is the only chance for a family guy like me to see the whold thing unfold. Since our coaching staff never sleeps, it would probably favour them too.

    Speeding it up is like taking a bandage off quickly instead of slowly, guessing the Patriots draft is torture plain and simple.

    Like a true maniac I love the misery and can't wait until April.

    WE should rejoice. We will be able to see who the Pats pick with their top 5 pick all the quicker. BB will then declare to Goodell to screw it and then trade back and get his 2 - 1st day picks after all.

    Saturday will go faster which could be good.

    But, draft sunday is going to be crazy now.

    You got that right.

    I wonder if these changes will impact the frequency of draft-day deals.

    I thought a better system would be:
    12 minutes between picks for Round 1;
    10 minutes for Round 2;
    7 for Round 3.

    One thing this impacts is the draft strategy in day 2. Most teams regroup and kind of reforumulate their plans after day 1 is over depending on if they got the players/positions they wanted. I really love these moves in both time start and length of the draft. This is one of the few things I like that Goodell is doing.

    Does anyone else think its possible that the 49ers will continue to suck so much that we will end up with a top 5 pick.

    And then Belichick will turn around and trade it for 2 late 1st round picks.

    That would really stick it up Goodell's ass, haha.

    Nah, not in that division or that conference for that matter. The Pats should end up with the 9-12th pick or so.

    The time between picks is a good thing, the time of day does not matter, because we always pick later in the day anyways.
