    So every good player would be in a couple big markets? This is a terrible idea. These guys haven't thought past their noses on this concept. These guys don't even factor in fans at all in this, either. Fans are the ones who ultimately pay for these players. You think we want to see 3 teams so fucking stacked that noone else can compete because they are in huge markets? Fans would stop watching and going to games, buying merchandise or wares, teams would go bankrupt. The league would be dead within a few years and we'd all be begging for the draft to come back.

    Every sport is spurred on by FANS, not players. If we stop paying they lose their jobs and as mildly interesting as it may be, I don't care that my cashier at mcdonalds can run a 4.30 40.

    I love the Draft, and it would be too big of a loss. I don't like the lottery because it is so abstract. But a tournament for the bad teams would be awesome to earn a better spot in the draft. You should be enticed to win no matter the state of your franchise. There is too much incentive to tank right now (not saying it works, but it is easy to do and easy to get rewarded for it, especially if you trade down and get a ton of picks like the Colts did last year)

    No draft would be terrible, small market teams wouldn't be able to attract high value talent? Am I the only one who thinks this lmao

    Playing in the NFL is a privilege not a right !! The players get pId handsomely to do what they love . if they have a problem with where they'll get drafted then they don't have to play ..

    These are millionaires, at the very worst making in the hundreds of thousands a year. I feel no sympathy that people have to move far away for an extremely lucrative opportunity. It's a freaking job and a high paying one at that. I love the fact that the draft puts people in places they may have never been, it gives people a new connection to a different area that opens up their perspective on life.

    I’m cool with the draft bc it gives everyone a chance to improve their team. The franchise tag and lack of fully guaranteed contracts are the real problem.

    That would destroy the parity in the NFL which makes the league so great

    Fans like football because they don't have Massive anchor guarantee contracts … when a stiff isn't earning his salary he is dismissed. NO ! NO! NO! to paying college players 6 year contracts with big money in a bidding war. That will result in the NFL with 40% of players that don't even belong in the league. NFL draft is fun & free agency is fun and players getting released is fun ( NO CHANGE)

    Sports are an entirely different entity then any other type of employment. These guys sign up and they know that's how it's going to be and I've never heard the players complain about getting drafted before.
