This should be stickied ot the top. Great list.

Also, can someone create a clock that ticks backwards... I hate having to figure out how many days... I always round up to the nearest 100.

The draft is honestly one of my favorite parts of the NFL season as a whole - not just the offseason. I can't wait either.

Me, too.

Back when I was a well-oiled machine, it used to be like a holiday for me. I would eat pizza once per year: draft day. I would eat donuts once per year: draft day. I would have M&Ms and cheese curls once per year: draft day.

Now, draft day is still just as awesome, but... uh... I now "indulge" in those gluttony vices much more frequently. :wink02:

following information has probably been posted in various other threads, but is pertinent in this one as well-

salary cap for 2013 is projected to be $121 mil/year.

Jets (worst salary cap situation at $150/mil made major cuts today to help get to that number and have some maneuverability in regards to being hamstrung by sanchez, and basically having no other choice but to trade revis.

latest numbers have the steelers currently $15.9 mil over the projected cap. this is the number us steelerfans need to focus on in the next 3 weeks.

Me, too.

Ha, ha, ha... you would think. Truth be told, I don't even imbibe.

the surefire way to tell if anyone imbibes is if they are one of the few who use the word "imbibe". :sofunny:

lol... just messin.

now that roger goodell has turned draft "day" into a week long event, i can no longer imbibe in all the good draft foods either. :wink02:

I might be in the minority, but you seem to agree: Thursday night (& Friday night) is just NOT the same as "all day Saturday."

and in late February there's not much to talk about except speculating about who we're interested in at the combine

I've been thinking about bumping it for a while now but I thought it was appropriate today since, ya know, we're 21 days away from the draft!

Im more antsy about this year's draft too.

With so many question marks/depth concerns/youngsters that need to step up, this draft is so critical to answering the "are we rebuilding or reloading?" debate.

Colbert and Tomlin have to nail this draft.
