    I was going to say any O or D lineman who isn't Jake Long, Ryan Clady, Chris Long, Gholston, Ellis, Dorsey, Harvey and maybe Merling. These guys never get much love in the media so Otah isn't a bad pick.

      I think so. ESPN is worshipped by casual fans.

        I have a good friend who is as big a football fan as you will find. Season tickets to The Jets, an entire room dedicated to the Sack Exchange of the 80s, and I guarantee you he not only doesn't know a single player in the draft, but he couldn't even tell you where his Jets are drafting. I think the draft is a fringe event that has a very small, but rabid fan base.

            The Draft is small? The ratings last year where insane and now that Goodell made the move to make it easier for west coast people to watch the draft NFL Network said they are predicting 20% better ratings from last year.

            Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

              Still, not that many people watch the draft.

                Compared to the super bowl no.

                I also think the first round going by more quickly will boost ratings and make it more enjoyable (cuz it is faster) to watch.

                  they should have tons of highlight vids of all the guys. rather than ten hours of listening to mayock argue with schefter.

                    People who watch the draft LOVE the draft, but not that many people watch it compare to even a regular football game.

                        Exactly, b/c more causal fans will watch.

                          F*** the NFL Network and comcast's cable packages. Go radios! And no, I am not a Luddite.

                                Lol I follow the Jets closely and the draft in recent years esp this one and I couldn't tell you who the Jets are drafting.

                                Nah j/k I think since Mangenius took over the Jets have done a great done with drafting.

                                See:
                                D'Brick
                                Manchild
                                KC
                                Neon Leon
                                Revis
                                Harris

                                I truely like the direction he is taking them, and hate other Jets fans who disagree with me on this.

                                But seriously they are drafting Gholston if he's there. I think Tangini will make it happen.
