NFL's Future

2014 NFL Mock Draft

UFL Draft Sadly Capturing Viewers

Posted by Brad On May - 2 - 2011

On many levels and during normal circumstances I would care less about the UFL Draft which takes place tonight at 8:00 p.m.  My reasons for following this years’ UFL Draft are two-fold:

1.  The head coaches of each team will be announcing selections via Twitterverse.  Oh by the way, the likes of the UFL head coaches include Jerry Glanville (@JerryGlanville), Dennis “They are who we thought they were” Green(@UFLDennisGreen), Marty Schottenheimer (@DestroyersMarty), and Jim Fassel (@LocosJimFassel) to name a few.

2.  It will be interesting to see who is selected because of the NFL work stoppage.  If you were an NFL undrafted free agent would you go with the UFL given the NFL’s issues?  Probably not, but it will be fun to see.

I guess in the absence of the NFL, fans will be drawn to anything semi-football related.  I know I will be following tonight.
