NFL GM's want Draft postponed

Recommended Posts

Most of these guys have had three to four years to get an idea of who these players are.   In addition, they've had the Senior Bowl and the Combine.

 

No reason to postpone the draft.

I'm willing to bet Beane isn't one of the guys begging for postponement.

It's 3 days long b.c of the time allowed between picks.

That's silly.

 

They can keep things going from pick-to-pick without having to worry about being fast.

Seriously, why could the draft NOT go on other than GMs can't evaluate players as thorough as they would like.

 

Each teams war room... less than 10 ppl?

Actual draft auditorium... 2 ppl per team, plus some extra ppl...  less than 100 ppl spaced out...

 

This can be done.

 

Also, I like the idea of spreading out the draft.  Do it over 5 days, Round 1, 2, 3, 4-5, 6-7

It can be done and I like this format.

If you're looking for a great show, try Counterpart. It's only two seasons, and for my money the best show of the last couple/few years. It's now streaming on Amazon Prime.

I’m going to check it out!! Looking for stuff to watch. Thanks for the recommendation!!

No I mean by rules teams have a time limit to use between each pick if they choose and most do.

Ralph/Marv: "There's a draft coming up?"

 

Russ: "We're gonna win the draft on Facebook! Yeah!"

 

Buddy: "Did I miss AJ Green, Julio Jones and JJ Watt? Ah hell, just give me my Skoal already and let's get ready to show the world my baby."

 

Doug: "I want to trade 6 1st's for Sammy, pronto!"

Beane, to the rest of the NFL: "Your girlfriend was AMAZING last night. Just wait till I get to your wife."

So true. So much overthinking goes into this. Hell, I'd like to see teams forced one year to draft based on college performance only - no combine, pro days, nothing else - just to see what the results would be. Probably not that different from what we currently have. 

I guess the other thing I failed to concern is the medical records.  But couldn’t the nfl just have an approved group of doctors and the entire league uses the same records?

Thanks for the reminder! One of the best shows I’ve seen. Love Ozark!

Ozark is awesome.  Netflix is working hard on MVP of the quarantine season.

Well if not push back.... looks like these regional scouts who have had contact with these players will be highlighted. But I’m sure it’s not gonna make that big of a difference. I’m sure their phones still work. Game tape should be enough in most cases 

I would think that would be enough too.

 

I understand that they will miss out on personal 1-on-1 interviews, but again that can be conducted by video conference or telephone.

Yet, they unanimously have asked for the draft to be pushed back. Not just one or two GMs, therefore, without knowing exactly every detail that goes into the process... I'll lean with the people asking for the extension over the bored fans who just want any type of sports.

I think the exact opposite. I like Schefter’s idea of 1 round a day for a week. There is NOTHING else going on. This will give team’s more time to work through their boards which is especially important without pre-draft workouts and pro days. The TV audience will be massive even for the later rounds. 

 

1 round a day.  That would be fantastic.

Vikings is also great. (on Hulu)  Better Call Saul (AMC) is another good one.

The NFL stands to lose money, hence RG’s refusal to comply (at the moment).  It’s all about the money.  

They are going to lose money either way.  They might as well do the right thing as demanded by the majority of the teams.  It would be a shame if the commissioner who lives in NYC can't see the big picture.

Good thing the NFL dont listen

 

They have had plenty of time to watch all the college games in real time and on tape

 

You can argue thats all you're really supposed to be doing anyway

 

let's go Old School, everyone's in same boat

 

also Players need to know where they're going its their life they need time to plan it

GMs can do interviews on skype or similar platforms.  The athletes have had physicals at the combine.  I am sure that the NFL can arrange physicals for the top 200 with local medical centers.  Otherwise TV contracts might prevent the moving of the draft.  The Commissioner probably will make a final decision soon.

@Roger Goodell, can you tell us what your thought process is in either keeping the draft as-is, or pushing it back a while?

 

As of now the league office is planning to hold the 2020 draft as scheduled, however we continue to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 virus on NFL operations and will make any and all decisions with the safety of players, team employees, and the general public utmost in mind.

Sorta kinda, although it is set in the present. It’s not Black Mirror-like in terms of actual plot, but for overall sensibility Black Mirror is a decent comp. It has great acting, great writing, and a really strong cast.

If you could get an extension at work to finish a project that may decide the fate of your job 2-3 years for now, would you take it?

 

I know why they are asking.   I just dont think it needs to be done.

While anything is possible camp isn't until mid July, that's a long way from now.

The early OTAs are in jeopardy but if things go well the NFL will adjust and have them in a condensed from in June.

 

The players can all be tested ahead of travelling and after travelling.

 

If the season (September) is in jeopardy we all got a lot more to worry about other than football.

I understand why they would want to postpone it, but they should really try to press on.

Make it simple, like how it used to be.

 

Millions of fans have had to change their normal work routines and are working from home.  (Myself included.)

If we can all do it... they can all do it.  Just do it differently.

 

Plus, I'm just jonesing for some football!

All 32 GMs suffer from one thing.

Paralyzation by over analyzation.

 

give them 100 pages of data...or 10 pages of data. It’s all just a shot in the dark if PLAYER A is going to get a Yellow Jacket or be out of the league by 2023.

 

Enough of this making This seem harder or more important than it is.

 

make the draft health safe and run it.
