    Well that prediction didn't take long, now we only need to wait a few years for people to become used to e-signing things so that using paper and pen becomes the same analogy as a dial phone in current day.

    Now that I think about it, this draft should be good for Dallas. We have the secondary we picked up last year. Don't need a tight end, don't need a QB, don't need receivers, don't need linebackers. Running backs...eh......I'm not a fan of DeMarco Murray. But the point is, the draft is big on linemen, both offensive and defensive. Which is the big holes for the Cowboys.

    Anyway, I'm sitting in an IRC channel. Quakenet server, channel name is #mmoc-NFLDraft. Probably leave my PC on tonight, but after the first round, I will be working this weekend and won't be around.

    I'll be there tomorrow night, probably an hour or 2 before things start, about midnight my time. Should be fun to hear reactions and opinions as things go on.

    Just reading through Mayock's mock. He has Lotulelei going to you for the line, and DJ Hayden, cornerback. Not a bad haul with those 2 picks.

    He also has Xavier Rhodes fall to the Pats. Yes, please!

    Yeah My good friend that is a philly fan has hated him for all these years. Hes not too hype about Chip Kelly, but really you have to try to be worse.

    I am just not hype about the draft at all this year. Maybe I can now that the Mariners went from "some hope before you stick a fork in them" to "time to get out the paper bags if Felix/Iwakuma isn't playing"

    Lack of starpower in this draft, no big names, no sexy picks. There's not even many high risk, high reward type players that you secretly hope your hated teams pick and bust. Personally I just love this type of picking-things-to-improve type scenario and the high drama that surrounds it. Never gets old to me.

    I think the fact the Seahawks have no 1st rounder adds to your lack of interest too

    They will trade up if they need to.

    Barry Sanders made it to the Madden 25 cover. Lions have had the cover two years in a row. I think thats a first for a team?

    I've looked through the covers, and it seems so. Pretty cool the public went old school with this vote.

    In other news, it seems like the Bills might be targeting Matt Barkley with their pick. So they get rid of one weak-armed, smart, game manager type QB and bring in a younger, unproven version of him? Poor Bills fans, they won't make the playoffs till 2020 if it's true.

    oh good, I forgot to check back and vote on the cover, for once the internet doesn't horribly disappoint me

    Raiders apparently dealing with lots and lots of interest for the no.3 pick in order for teams to get their hands on 1 of the 3 top tackles. Wonder if that ever happened 3 tackles in the the 3 top picks.

    How does a GM keep his job by sucking? Easy just own the team and you can suck it up as much as possible.

    Just heard on the radio that the Browns are considering trading up to get QB Geno Smith.

    Looks like the Vikings got their new uniforms unveiled. https://twitter.com/adamwsyx6/status/327562282022367232

    Shoulders look like the Seahawks, with two team colors and a giant nike logo.

    Anyone got any last minute bets, thoughts, or fears?

    I'm surprised that the number one pick hasn't even been decided yet. Has that happened before?

    I'm sure it has, there's just no #1 legit pick this year.

    I can already feel it. The Lions are going to take a WR because all the OTs and the CB from Bama will be gone.

    Can't believe a kid from CMU is going to go #1.
