Welcome to the Maize n Brew NFL Draft Open Thread, everyone! The action starts tonight at 8:00 ET on ESPN.
It's about damn time this thing gets here. As much as I love football, I'm happy that the draft is here--not because it signifies the fact that football is coming soon and I can see how my favorite team will blow their pick, but because I'm tired of the plethora of mock drafts, Mel Kiper, Todd McShay, and every other outlet that has a Big Board that gets updated every fifteen minutes; this player or that player is the best and deserves to go #1, while this guy should just give up and start looking for a van that looks awesome next to the river. Who is trading up and who is trading down? Three months of this garbage is finally at an end!
Let's move on.
There are a couple former Michigan players to keep an eye on and Big House Jack did a good job of covering the possibilities for Taylor Lewan and Jeremy Gallon. Plus, we also have Josh going over Brady Hoke's support of Lewan, who is awaiting a court date later this month.
So, who is picking where? Well...
|2||St. Louis Rams (from Washington)|
|7||Tampa Bay Buccaneers|
|12||New York Giants|
|13||St. Louis Rams|
|18||New York Jets|
|21||Green Bay Packers|
|23||Kansas City Chiefs|
|25||San Diego Chargers|
|26||Cleveland Browns (from Indianapolis)|
|27||New Orleans Saints|
|29||New England Patriots|
|30||San Francisco 49ers|
My railing against all the draft coverage aside, come on out and tell us who your favorite team is and who you think/hope they'll take. Sit back and enjoy the draft; don't get too upset with who your favorite team selects...unless it's Johnny Manziel, of course. As always, make this thread yours, but mind the guidelines.
