Draft will give fans of each team their own section

In 17 days, the draft does Dallas — and Dallas will do the draft like no other city ever has.

“This is going to be the most talked-about draft in history,” NFL draft historian and custodian Gil Brandt tells Peter King of SI.com. “And not just because quarterbacks could go one through four, or four of the top five picks. But this will be an incredible extravaganza. For years to come, people will compare every draft to Dallas. The saying, Everything’s bigger in Texas, will definitely apply.”

Here’s a new twist that has never been done before, in part because the draft has never been held in a football stadium. “We’ll have sections all over the stadium for all 32 teams, and it’ll be like a competition between all the teams and their fans,” Brandt said.

The competition will be rigged, because it will essentially be a home game for Cowboys fans. But the fans of the 32 teams surely will have one thing on which that can all agree: Every time the Commissioner walks to the podium, they’ll be speaking with one, unified voice.

  1. The majority of the drunk millennials who will be ruining it by booing probably talk smack on the one guy who tried to get Rid of Goodell. So they should boo each other.

    Brandt is correct that it should be an exciting event for draftniks. With all the focus on the first four selections, it should be noted that it’s highly probable picks 5-32 would be readily available in trade. You may see teams hopscotching around the board trying to obtain a particular LT or CB.

    Additionally, with this type of chaos at the top of the draft there is usually several top quality players who fall to teams picking in the 20’s. This year, the standard, “We couldn’t believe he was still there” may actually be true.

  3. Well I guess since the Cowboys can’t beat the Eagles at football that they figured to try to beat them at event hosting.

    This is hilarious… The Cowboys have 5 rings, the eagles 1. All time record? 63-51 Cowboys… Yes, Dallas will also certainly win this “competition” as well and host a much better Draft. Thanks for playing… try again if your team lucks into 4 more Super Bowls.

  5. Part of what ruined last years draft was all the non professionals announcing the draft picks. The draft should be about the draftees and nothing else.
