    in years past, i couldnt wait till the draft, i would browse the internet for hours getting all the info i could for the upcoming draft, but this year i havent even read one mock except for the one Goose put out a few days ago.

    i dunno what it is? maybe this years class isnt getting me excited, i dont think the RB, WR, or CB class is all that great this year, other than Vince Young who i know we will not be getting, no other player excites me at all. i know come next saturday ill be glued to the tv, but till then im hardly excited.

    I haven't been reading as many mocks, but that goes back the last several years (save last season) for me.

    I generally don't like reading a bunch of uneducated opinions on who will be taken as low as 18. In the top 10, I get more giddy to read any and every opinion...but when we're picking near the 20s, it just gets so much harder to guess.

    But I am excited. Primarily because I'm hopeful some unexpected high-calibre prospect will fall. And if not, hopefully one of the guys I like will be taken.

    My fear, though, is always that I'll get my hopes up only to see them dashed. I think the Stephen Jackson/Kevin Jones draft scarred me for life in that sense. Things worked out pretty well, but still, that draft-day zinger really hurt. :)

    I love the draft every yr...even in 00 and 01 when we didnt have a 1st rd pick I loved the draft...always have, always will...

    this yr should be even better with NFL network jumping in with FT coverage as well...I cant wait

    I wouldn't say I'm not excited about it but I don't get too worked up for it either. I only care about who the Cowboys pick and where DeAngelo goes.

    This years draft class >>>>>> Last years

    This draft is also much more unpredictable, last year you pretty much knew the top 4-5 picks, this year with all the trade talk its a crapshoot

    The last two years I've been able to hold back my "enthusiasm" till a day or two before the draft. No sense getting all fired up over a week in advance.

    Not easy to do, but I just focus on things I have/want to do in the nearer future and that usually works.

    I'm more excited about watching House tonight then I am about the draft.

    By the way, thanks to Mr. Mosely (sp?) for getting me interested in that show. Dr House is the man! :yourock:

    Actually, I'm more into the draft this year...

    Last year, I had no idea who we even drafted lol...

    I always used to root for the Cowboys during the regular season, but after a disappointing season, I would just shut the Cowboys out of my life.

    I stumbled across this site, and now i have learned that offseasons can be fun also.

    I have always enjoyed both the offseason FA and the draft. I subscribe every year for Kiper's report, and have done so for the last 25-30 years. I used to also subscribe to Joel Bushbaum's and also Ourlad. Now I only subscribe to one because the only thing I need from them is the info about all the players.

    I have to play golf for a bachelor party at 12:00 on Sat., But I'm bringing my mp3 player for sure and am trying to decide if my "bad knee" is going to start acting up. I like the guy, but it's the draft.:confused:

    cowboys fans are probably less excited b/c we dont have a top 10 pick...or 2 first rounders. when was the last time we could say that?

    I haven't been more excited for a draft ever. This years class is far superb to any in probably the last 5 years.

    why are you friends with a guy who is skipping the draft to play golf for his bachelor party? arent you supposed to have strippers and all that fun stuff at your bachelor party . . . i mean if your not gonna do all that, you should atleast watch the draft, not go golfing . . . :D jk.
