No, this year’s draft won’t be the glitz of Vegas, but the dankness of Jolly Roger’s basement. I can hardly wait.
The story is here:
I guess all the owners will send homing pigeons to Goodell’s place to announce their picks.
The league will have 58 draftees participating in the virtual draft, so there’s gonna be something going on. Cutaways and such, but hey, it’s happening so I’m happy about that.
Nothing has changed for us in all this. Still think we get Cee Dee or JJ. I’d be fine with either one.
Sad news, Tavaris Jackson, QB of the Seahawks among a few other teams, was killed in a car crash last night.
If you didn’t see this, it’s a bit like how the draft will work.
I wonder if they will hold to the same time periods between picks. i don’t see the need for that. 5 minute intervals should be plenty long enough. There was an idea floating around a couple of weeks ago about every team being awarded 3 extra picks since without the physicals and the face to face interviews the picks would be more of a gamble than they already are. i think the idea came from Pittsburgh’s GM but I don’t think Rog will go for it. Anyway, I am looking forward to having the draft.
Speaking of drafty, my fellow he-girls and I are setting bryn mawr on fire by eating burritos and farting into lighters
If JJ&Cee Dee are gone, I think they take Kinlaw over Ruggs and get a WR later in the draft.I prefer the true #1 receiver though to really open up the offense!
We’re way over due to get a possible top notch Jerry Rice type..
If Kinlaw is there and CeeDee isn’t, yeah. Or trade down and get him anyway.
I am not worrying about who we are gonna pick. For the first time in years i actually feel confident that we have the right people in place to make decisions. I know it’s still a gamble but i think we will get the players that will do us the most good whether from the BPA or need. I am actually surprised that we didn’t lose key people from out FO this year. i figure someone will be offering Peters or Mayhew a GM post sooner or later.
Winder – Maiocco has you covered 😀
How long do teams have between picks?
There is a 10-minute limit between picks in the first round; seven minutes per selection in the second round; a five-minute limit for picks from Rounds 3 through 6; and four minutes per selection in the seventh round.
The NFL is expected to be lenient with those time limits in case, say, the Bengals claim the dog ate their homework on Joe Burrow. The league also has provided backup phone numbers to dial-in picks and trades just in case there are any technical glitches.
The 2020 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday, April 23, at 5 p.m. PT with the first round. The next day, beginning at 4 p.m. PT, will be Rounds 2 and 3. Then, on Saturday, April 25, the draft concludes, beginning at 9 a.m. PT with Rounds 4 through 7.
The draft, originally scheduled to be in Las Vegas, will take America inside the home of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who will reveal the selections from his home in Westchester County, New York.
We’ve never been invited inside his home, but we can only figure it’s a modest abode. After all, a salary of $30 million-plus annually only gets you so far.
In GRAND business from home style – from Rogers’ basement…..
Roger Can You Hear Me?
I was trying to play “it’s a beautiful day” you just have to scroll through it.
Changed it for you. HOFer WIllie Davis passed away at 85. NOT of the virus.
Willie Davis, a defensive lineman who helped the Green Bay Packers win each of the first two Super Bowls, died in Santa Monica at age 85.
His wife, Carol, told the Packers her husband had been hospitalized for about a month with kidney failure and died peacefully.
A 15th-round draft pick from Grambling, Davis began his NFL career by playing both offense and defense for the Cleveland Browns in 1958 and ’59. He had his greatest success after getting traded to the Packers, finishing his NFL career in 1969 as a five time All-Pro.
He was voted to the NFL’s all-decade team for the 1960s and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1981.
Davis helped the Packers win the NFL championship in 1965 before capping the 1966 and 1967 seasons with titles in the first two Super Bowls.
One of the very best. RIP
