Before I get into this, I wanted to take a moment to thank a few people. This week quickly descended into utter chaos and some folks stepped up that I want to acknowledge.
The long and short of it is, there were credential issues. I understand there were a bunch of media people affected - I happened to be lucky enough to be one of them.
Luckily, Mr. Nagler, Brian Bassett of theJetsBlog.com and Calvin Morrissey and the folks at GMC and Big Fuel all stepped up to help straighten things out. Both Aaron and Brian made a bunch of calls on my behalf (as did my buddy Cecil Lammey at 104.3 The Fan) to the NFL to try and work things out. Brian also put me in touch with Calvin, who came through to make my attendance at the Draft possible.
So Thursday at least, I will be at the Draft, in the interview room and harassing Behnke and Nagler by throwing things at them. That's thanks to GMC and I can't thank them enough. I'm excited to see what they've got planned tonight as well. You can follow their Draft activities on twitter by looking for the hashtags #GMSpon and #GMCDraft.
With that - let's get this FINAL mock draft posted.
So as you can see, a few surprises and few 'well duh' picks. And you know what? Come 8:01pm EST on Thursday when the Panthers make their actual pick, all this becomes irrelevant.
We can finally stop wondering about 'what could be' and start talking about 'what is'.
