Discussion in 'The Bill Nunn Draft Room' started by mac daddyo, May 8, 2014.
is it too early?
Never, in fact I think I'll start the official 2015 draft thread.
Won't be able to join the online party tonight as I'll have a house full of guys watching the draft. I'll see if I can get any priceless reactions.
Will be looking forward to discussing tonight's results and the rest of the draft though.
I'll join to tonight guys. It shall be fun, and with the #15 pick the Pittsburgh Steelers select.......
I was feeling rather indifferent earlier this week (thanks Rog), but I started getting really excited last night. When I woke up this morning, I half expected to see the kids all gathered around the Christmas tree.
Working til 10. Hopefully I'll be able to catch their pick. Will most likely have to do my swearing off-line, however.
Working out of town tonight. will miss the party but I'll be checking in via my phone.
Hey it's already tomororw in Australia so the first round should already be in over there. I'll try to get you a first round recap.
Yep, just checked with a buddy in Brisbane. The Steelers drafted a CB but I'll leave the "who" a secret until later tonight. And...JUST WAIT 'TIL YOU SEE WHERE JOHNNY FOOTBALL ENDED UP!!! (Hint: Clowney was not the first player off the board).
Oh, this is going to be so much fun!!!!
So you guys getting geared up for some NBA playoff action tonight on ESPN 2?
Yeah, me neither!
I just checked out Peter Schrager's seven round mock draft on FOX sports.com and that was a joke. Fuller in the first, an OT from Ohio State in the second, a DT from Princeton with the 3rd comp and then nothing but WR's and DB's the rest of the way. Not a single RB, TE or LB in the whole draft.
I'll be here!
Now lets do this!
I probably won't be online tonight will probably watch it at a sportsbar. The 49ers beat writer had them trading up to #15 to get Beckham, works for me the Steelers get some extra picks.
The Browns...a franchise proud of it's excellent quarterbacking!
I'd be floored if that happened.
Mmhmm. Definitely steeped in tradition.
Wow! Is it draft day already? I can't believe how it snuck up on us this year . How in the world did anyone even have the time to prepare a mock draft or a hundred of them in such a short time? I really hope they give us more time next year because I think the coverage was severely lacking.
I have been waitimg on this weekend since the reg season, But i have been watching ESPN all day and all there coverage is about , is the top 4 pics, its getting minnotinnous.... Personally i wished the draft wld go bck to the 2 dayformat..... anyway here is hoping we have a great draft..
All these media types throwing out all these rumors 99% of them won't happen.
Yup. People gobble it up though.
Heard a rumor yesterday that had the Vikings trading with the Cowboys for Tony Romo and allowing the Cowboys to jump ahead and get Johnny Football
Exactly. Jack Mewhort instead of Moncrief or Matthews? No disrespect to a former Buck, but why?
He hit on Fuller, and maybe Caraun Reid (rather be in the fourth); the man is a beast. Gotta get Brent Urban, too.
I've heard some of the Romo rumors, and there's no way that Dallas can pull something like that off. Below is a link to his contract details. If the Cowboys keep Romo, his cap hit is a hair under $11.8 million. If they trade him, his dead money is accelerated, and they take a $41.7 million cap hit. If the Spotrac numbers are correct, it would cost them $30 million more against the cap to trade him than to keep him. I heard yesterday that the Cowboys have something like $6 million in cap space. Still, it makes for fun talk. Jerry Jones just might be crazy (stupid) enough to take Manziel at #16 even if he can't move Romo.
I should add that we'll keep this thread spoiler free like we usually do in terms of announcing picks before they're announced on TV. The Twitter feed on the home page WILL have spoilers though, just FYI.
