I don't think I've ever spent as much time as I have this year following players during the football season, watching video, writing, thinking, and debating about this year's draft. I feel like I am now familiar and knowledgable any player who could possibly be drafted on Saturday. I have been waiting for Day 1 of the NFL Draft to happen for months now. I can't wait. This is sad, I know. I'll be catching the draft while friends and I barbecue during the afternoon. My alcohol consumption will depend entirely on what happens tomorrow. There are so many variables still out there: - What will happen to Javon Walker, Donald Driver, Ashlie Lelie, and Stallworth? - If the Texans take Super Mario, how does that dramatically change picks #2-10? - Will the Pats go LB/DE/WR/OL in the first round? - How many trades down and up will Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli make? - How many post-questions about the draft will Belichick talk about but not actually answer? Finally, I wanted to make a pledge for tomorrow. For every draft pick selected, traded away, or traded for, I will take a shot. I feel I owe it to myself after all the time invested in this silly event.
