I only came upon this site after last year's draft. Since then I must check in every day, often multiple times, to satisfy my Raiders obsession.
I have to say the work by Levi, Tyler, Marcus et al has been outstanding and is much appreciated. Living in England my knowledge of College football is limited and all the analysis, mock drafts etc have been fantastic to read and have filled the ridiculously long void that the wait for the draft has proved to be.
I extend my thanks to all the people who have posted Fanposts including so many mock drafts I wouldn't want to count them. Its all been fascinating, argumentative and thoroughly entertaining.
Well the long wait is almost over, the draft is upon us and Reggie will doubtless confound all of the mocks and pick people no one expected! But whatever happens, lets have faith in the big man and hope to hell that he gets it right..
I will be tuned in Thursday night and look forward to all the debate on this site. The draft begins 1am over here so I am taking the Friday off in the hope that we trade down but if we don't and take a real difference maker at 5, I will still be happy.
Here's to a good next 3 days, lets hope we can bring in some great young talent to learn from our veteran players. See you all Thursday.
