I am going to open up this draft thread for people who don't always frequent FootballPros.com as a way to welcome them from Twitter. At FootballPros.com I use the knowledge of local fans and experts to help me know as much as possible about the teams they follow on a regular basis. Local fans know details that I often miss. It has been a great site for me and I hope them.
As a way of introducing FootballPros.com to our friends on Twitter I wanted to open our draft discussion to everyone. We hope you will join our team and help all of us learn from your questions and comments. We try to keep it friendly and fun. We have many former players and coaches who participate, but so much of the real information comes from the local fans.
One quick thought to get us going. After watching a lot of Alabama tape, I think my top draft choice might be Nick Saban. He has really good players that we will be talking a lot about in the first round, but the key is they play disciplined football within a complex NFL style system. "DO YOUR JOB!" is posted in almost every locker room in the NFL. At Alabama you can watch a defense that "DOES THEIR JOB" and trusts the other players to do theirs. The discipline of the Alabama defenders gives them an added check on my draft board.
Questions and comments about the draft can be asked or answered here for the next week. It should be fun. If you are new to FootballPros.com, we are thrilled to have you with us. Let the games begin!
