Good stuff on the new draft format from Tom Silverstein, including some interesting quotes from Thompson:
It certainly changes your routine and I'm a person of routine. It's been changed a little bit the last couple of years, so we'll change with it and go about our business. The first pick in each of the days are always valuable a little bit more because after the dust rises, there's normally a player where you say, 'Why is he still up there?' It becomes something of value.
Also, love this from Brandon over at ACME Packing:
I'm not trying to dump on Mike McCarthy, but I love that picture from the draft room with John Dorsey and Ted Thompson, ties off, glasses on, doing all the analysis while McCarthy is sitting with his tie on, looking up at the TV. McCarthy has a lot more days in the spotlight, but he takes a back seat to those two on draft day.
Very, very true.
