The Oh-So-Important Draft

For all the shit given to Jolly Roger Goodell, I don’t see what the huge deal is around altering the draft to fit the situation. All that needs to be working is the commissioner being able to get the picks from the GMs of the various teams.

Sure, it won’t be the magnificently gratuitous greed-fest that this has turned in to, but them’s the breaks. Goodell’s only other option is to postpone this, and have the domino effect of the draft delay affecting the OTAs, and that pushing back training camp, that pushing back the pre-season, and of course this postpones the regular season.

This is the likely outcome anyway, but Roger is one to never hedge a bet, so he’s going full steam ahead with the draft. I’m interested to see how it actually goes, and if everyone stays connected through all this, and it works, but in this age of online meetings and the myriad platforms available, it shouldn’t be too bad.

He will still get the advertiser money for commercials, and this should be as greed-fed as they can make it, but hey, to me, it’s the only thing in sports that is still going on schedule, so it’s a great diversion.

For the 49ers, of course we are:

a) Drafting a WR
b) Drafting a CB
c) Drafting an O lineman
d) Packaging our two 1st rounders and Nick Mullens for Chase Young
e) Trading down out of 13 for more picks

Let the fun begin. I’m of a mind to get a WR. Jerry Jeudy would be well within our sites, if not for the Raiders. They will guaranteed take him. Unless they pull a Darius Heyward-Bay and take Cee Dee Lamb. I like Lamb as well, so we should be able to get him, because I really don’t think Prince Curdling doesn’t pass on Jeudy.

    Yep. I’m all for grabbing any tiny bit of normalcy in these fucked up days.

    Can’t really complain as Im still working, as is my wife. But my son lost his job, and my daughter, who was here between moves, is still here. She’s working as well.

    Will someone please remind “Underwhelming” Unca Chuck, author of the FAILING Lamestream Niner blog, that Mark Davis has nothing to do with the draft and Prince Curdling is a TREMENDOUSLY Terrible nickname? I thought Chuck knew better. SAD!!!

    Go lick Pence’s knob, Donald.

    Not only is rent due but also car notes and if you lost your job probably your medical also. Cobra is ok if you have the money. Most don’t. People working from week to week just to make ends meet. they are the ones that are going to get royally fucked. Hopefully, this shit ends soon.

    I bought a Giants propeller hat from him around 1983 at the Burlingame art and wine festival. Loved that hat.
