Wait, what? The NFL draft is TONIGHT?! 

 

I seriously saw @McCarthy post something on Twitter about sports tonight and he added a quip about “nothing happening in the NFL tonight” and thought absolutely nothing of it other than thinking it was a bit strange for mid April. 

 

Has coverage dropped off that much or am I just living under a rock? 

You've been lucky enough to not watch FS1 or ESPN.  They've been beating that horse for a couple weeks.

This is year 2 of the first round on network TV.  FOX last year with Buck and Troy, ABC this year with the GameDay fellas.  It's as big as ever.

With the exception of bringing on Luke Bryant and Lee Corso wearing a giant Dwayne Haskins head, I enjoyed the ESPN on ABC coverage.

Weird. I feel like I’ve heard very little about it leading up to the draft. I thought it was still a few weeks away, actually.

Mina Kimes wins Day 1 of the NFL Draft broadcast again. The ESPN "On the Clock" on YouTube and Twitter with Mina, GoJo, and Foxworth is the most entertaining, but this year she didn't drop profanities.

She's one of my absolute favorite people in media today. It seems like everything LeBatard touches turns to gold, but she's really something special.

Her worrying and doing a "pee pee" dance over the Seattle pick (and trade) was what one the night for me and was hilarious. Love her laugh too.

 

Our "Sports Media" thread might need a post from me being a LeBatardapologist, but a decade later, I listen for Billy and Stugotz.  In fact, I think my older brother is a Stugotz in every way down to them both marrying a Gator alum.

It's become a bit problematic to talk like this in today's world, and I totally get why and don't want to be disrespectful or "creepy", but I have to admit that I've always had a HUGE crush on her. She's just fantastic and is one of the best in her field. I admire the hell out of that and genuinely look up to her. 

 

I think we need to start a Dan LeBatard thread. His empire is the very best thing about sports media today, and that's really saying something considering it's a Disney property.

Surprised Daniel Jones went at 6; that feels too high. Being compared to Jay Cutler is not a good comparison, but maybe he'll do better... who knows.

 

The Dolphins made me nervous, but they chose to bolster the defense instead of taking a QB. That's what I wanted.

 

The Broncos took a TE again? Lol they just can't find anyone to fill that position.

Here's where the tertiary ESPN feed won the evening.

Since Stafford was drafted, the Lions have made three TEs as First Round picks: Pettigrew (09), Ebron (14), and now Hockenson (19)

Ebron finally looked good last year, only problem it was in Indy.

I can't complain at all about the Jets' pick, but honestly, I just think I don't care all that much about the NFL anymore.

 

Like, all sports leagues essentially boil down to dick-waving contests between rich bastards at the expense of the proletariat, but the NFL is that jacked up to almost a comedic degree. And the product isn't even that entertaining to make up for it. The Patriots right now are the real sports equivalent of Reign of Terror-era Triple H.

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. f-ck Nick Bosa

No. The NFL with its salary cap for both the team and for rookies, sets itself up by design for, "Hope Trafficking" and they do it much, much better than the rest. Add the free agency month before the Draft makes it more impactful to the average NFL fan.

You want a true Jay Cutler comparison, just look at another QB in this draft: Drew Lock. Both led mediocre SEC teams and put up solid stats that get them hyped because they played against “SEC defenses.” And knowing my luck, Denver will take him, too.

And Nick Bosa is (probably) the hands down best player in the draft, what’s wrong with that?
