    Rolling 2017 NFL Draft thread...

    The draft is in Philly this year but I didn't "win" any of the good tickets so with 200,000 people expected in the area, I'll think I'll just watch at Home...

    Tons of good DBs and DLs which are both needs for the Cowboys (and Eagles) so both teams should be able to find some Starters in there.

    Be interesting to see how high McCaffrey goes, how low Foster goes and where the QBs end up being taken.
    Currently looking for: 2012 Ultra football (1992 style) #31 Rudy and Gold parallel version of 2011 Bowman Platinum Chase Utley #94.

    Always looking for: 2008 BC Jake Peavy Orange Refractors /25, have 6 so far.

    McCaffrey is the only reason I'll pay any attention. Loved watching him at Stanford and really hope he's successful in the NFL. Would love to see him in the Silver and Black or with the Giants. Other than him I'm not very interested

    IF you're going, eat before you get in to the Draft facility. Listed prices are worse than in stadiums...
    @Ashburn Alley , you guys setting up the Truck?

    Oops, my bad. One of our Local members runs a Food truck. And yes, they are setting up. I just can't remember their User name.

    I watched the draft at the hospital with my wife, since the Titans had 2 1st round picks. I think the Titans made good picks and the Eagles made a good pick. I think the 2 best steals of the night were by the 49ers.

    As usual, too many teams took guys too high when they coulda moved down. I just don't get it.

    And the Iggles pick is real solid but with Allen going to the Skins, that could come back to haunt them for years...

    Very happy the Texans got Watson and Foreman! Shocked the Texans actually moved up and got their first QB in the first round since David Carr. Good picks although I do find myself scratching my head on the Foreman pick as they really didn't need another running back as Miller isn't going anywhere and both Blue and Grimes are serviceable. But he's a Texas guy so I'm not griping!

    Yeah, I think the Texans, Titans, and Jags all had a good draft. Not sure about the Colts though. Any Colts fans on here?

    I think all AFC South teams had a good draft. I was glad that the Colts new GM realized that he could also draft defensive players!

    I'm near Houston and fear the Texans finaly got their franchise quarterback. With Houston's defense, it's not like he's going to have to put up 35 points a week in order to win...unlike certain horseshoe-related quarterbacks who shall remain nameless.

    Did your favorite player ever hit 5 home runs in a doubleheader?

    Truth be told, had we had a cold corpse on the field instead of Osweiler, we might have had a fighting chance to beat the Pats and go further in the playoffs last season. But when you're a Houston fan, you get used to disappointment. Kinda like the recent and epic, might I add, James Harden collapse against the Spurs.

    As for the Jags, if Bortles can start putting things together, the Jags might actually be scary. I'm already thinking the Titans will be better and harder to beat.
