The Draft Game

I was sent an email from NFL Fantasy yesterday.

The gist of it is there is a game where you can predict how this year's NFL Draft will go.

My thoughts: why waste my time?

Every single year that I have been following the NFL passionately, I've stumbled across writers' draft board projections and read magazines with the draft as its subject matter. You know what I've learned from doing this?

No draft projection that I have followed has ever been perfect.

And that's what is so great about watching everything unfold.

You can have X, Y and Z commentator talk up how a general manager will act in the war room on the draft weekend, but it NEVER ends up the way the projections go.

It reminds me of the board game - Mouse Trap. If there's one piece missing, you might as well throw the game away because it's not going to work.

I'm not going to even take a stab at a guess. I'm just going to sit there and watch everything play out.
