What are your Draft Day plans?


The draft is this Thursday, May 8th at 5pm. You can watch the thing on ESPN and enjoy every selection there.

What do you normally do on draft day? Are you going to sit through the whole process and wait for the Chargers selection or are you going to try to time the selection so that you know when to turn the television on?

Each team gets 10 minutes to make their selection and a lot of the teams let the time run off of the clock. There are 24 selection before the Chargers make their choice. 24 times 10 equals 240 minutes. That is around 4 hours till the Chargers make their choice and that means that the television should be on around 8:45 to 9:00.

…but what if the Chargers move up in the draft? This happened to me once. I was the guy that timed the draft and the Chargers traded and I had no idea what to do or what was happening.

This year, I will probably sitting on the computer writing about a bunch of things and talking back and forth with some of you all during our OPEN THREAD. Hope to see you all there.

What is your normal draft day thing?

    I always have the laptop ready to go, got the tv on, phone in my hand on boltbeat of course, and the tablet, its a long wait but once that pick comes in that wait is usually well worth it. Hopefully that wait will be well worth it this year.
