NFL Draft Begins... Somewhere A Pig Gets Its Last Meal

The weekend NFL draft marathon started at 9am (Pacific Standard Time) and won't end until late tomorrow. Of course, this means that I'll have it running in the living room and bedroom televisions (in case I need to check something on the computer.) So far, the surprise of the draft would be the Detroit Lions taking wide-out Mike Williams. The reason it is a surprise is that the team has taken a wide receiver in the first round of the draft 3 years in a row (Charles Rogers and Roy Williams.) I'm not a Lions fan but just found that interesting. Actually, it'd be interesting to hear from you about how you think your team drafted.

Actually I think the surprise of the draft was seeing Aaron Rodgers falling all the way to 24 with Green Bay.

Being a Cal fan, I'm so disappointed Rodgers fell that far. The 49ers seemed to do fine in their first day. The Raiders... well, they did about the same as the always do -- crappy.

Ok, of course I posted this before the bigger surprise. I really am shocked that someone (Denver) grabbed Clarett as high as the 3rd round. I had secretly hoped that he would go undrafted after walking away from the Combine following a bad 40-yard dash.

I think the 49ers filled in a lot of great areas and Nolan did exactly as he said he would... take each pick to make the other one look better. I don't know if I'm disappointed in the cornerbacks that Oakland took early on but I do know it was a need. I was expecting them to address the pass rush and linebackers early but they must have that trade of Woodson for Howard still on the table or faith in Derrick Burgess.

I have to admit I don't follow the draft for Dallas like I probably should. Perhaps it's the chick side showing, but I'd much rather just enjoy the games and leave the politics err.. the draft, alone. I can't wait for the first game, September 11, 2005! :) I have high hopes for the season - but I'm an optimist, I have high hopes at the start of every season!
