A Rememberance of Drafts Past

Draft time always makes me nostalgic.  The reason is because I’d rather analyze the knowable past than spin my wheels on the unknowable future. I feel that what we can know about the future will come more from the past than from the present.

That’s a pseudo-philosophical way of introducing the internet version of the clip show.

Remember to check out some classic 18to88.com posts about the draft this week:

I will definitely be doing “What to Expect” all next week. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite series of the year, because it helps to lower irrational expectations.  Drafting a player is generally about a 3 year process of scouting, drafting, coaching, and developing a guy from a college player into an NFL starter or (with luck) a star.  It’s not wise to expect much from the rookie season.
