NFL Draft

This thread is for the gamers who follow football. While I’m probably asking for it, please don’t troll this thread if you don’t have something fun or constructive to add.

The NFL Draft is six days away.

The Indianapolis Colts officially won the “Suck for Luck” sweepstakes and news leaked yesterday that they’ll officially draft him at number one.

The Washington Redskins sold their soul (or close to it) for the second pick and it’s a fairly certain assumption that they’ll select RG3.

With the 15th pick, I hope the Philadelphia Eagles get lucky and select Luke Kuechly, if he’s still available. Who do you hope your team selects?

I’ll be watching the Draft on Thursday and Friday night and I’ll either be celebrating or sobbing. Where there’s football, there’s beer (if you’re old enough). What do you have 'on tap'? Here are some of the beers I’m considering stocking my fridge with during this awesome event.
Weihenstephaner Hefe-Weissbier
Paulaner Salvator
Weyerbacher Simcoe IPA
Dogfish Head 90-Minute IPA
Sam Adams Boston Lager
Troegs Hop Devil
Guinness

If the Draft goes terribly for my beloved Eagles, I’ll have a four-pack of Weyebacher The Blithering Idiot on hand to put me out of my misery.

Good luck next week!

Fridge needs more Yuengling. And go with a different Sam Adams. Boston Lager is good, but the Cream Stout or Irish Red (If you have a store near you that carries it) are my favorites.

Good call on the Dogfish Head though.

As for the draft, as long as my Buc's don't do anything too stupid, I'm happy.

Irish Red

If I want Irish Red, I typically reach for Killian's. I may have to give this a try, though.

I feel the same about Philly

As a long long longtime Raiders fan .... draft day sucks :(

edit: 'course now that Davis is dead, maybe just maybe, a year from now, the Raiders might do some good in the draft.

Do your guys have any draft picks left after trading for that used up has been Carson Palmer?

I'm hoping Carolina can find some defense in the draft

Everyone else scrambling for quarterbacks? Cam Newton<3

Cam Newton

What an investment he turned out to be. Newton will turn that franchise around.

the trade was for a first round pick this year, and if the raiders make the playoffs, the first round pick next year.

pretty sure they blew that last game just to keep from getting into the playoffs...

Those picks are worth tons more than the caliber quarterback they got.

I'd definitely like the Titans to get a wide receiver because Britt can't seem to finish a season for one reason or another. Locker looked good in the time they gave him last season. O-line is strong... they might have to draft someone that will scare CJ straight.

Being a proud Giants fan, I will be awaiting the Eagles picks as well. More interesting however than the "dream team" Eagle to me is what the Jets do with their picks.

It's good to see you again.

Hell, if you lived a tad closer, I would have invited you over to watch the Draft with me. Did I tell you I live near Somerville now?

And, by the way, I hate the words, "Dream Team."

I'd love it if Donta' Hightower slipped to my Ravens, but I don't really see it happening. I'd be satisfied with an LB, guard or safety really. Or even trading back.

Isn't that the truth. Vince Young became Persona non Grata the moment he uttered those words.

As much as we don't really need a WR, I really hope Floyd somehow drops to 15.

Floyd
Jackson
Maclin
Mccoy

Yes please. They'll probably go DT though and rightfully so. Kuechly would be nice but I don't see him getting to 15.

I'm praying to any God that'll listen that he drops to 15.

While I like the way you think, we really need to beef up our defense. What's killing me right now is that they're trying to trade Asante Samuel instead of transitioning him to Safety. He could be the Brian Dawkins of this era...and those are pretty big shoes to fill.
