That's right, New England Patriots fans. The draft is here!! We've been mocking and predicting and watching combine videos until we're blue in the face! Trying to predict what Hoodie will do is like, well, I don't know what's like, but it sure is hard. The question of who we'll draft at 23, 34, 47, 58... is anyone's guess. One thing is for certain: it'll be covered here, in gory detail. How so, oh confused oracle of all things Patriot? I'm glad you've asked. First, a few resources for y'all:
Sports Blog Nation's Mocking the Draft - MTD
Boston Globe sportswriter Mike Reiss's blog - Reiss's Pieces
NFL's Draft Site - Draft 2009
New England Patriots draft site - Patriots draft 2009
One of many draft sites - draftcountdown.com
What will we be doing here at the Pulpit? Why, we'll have an open thread going, that's what!! If you're new to Sports Blog Nation's blogs, during games we have an open thread where you can comment on everything that's going on in the game. There's no need to refresh the page every few seconds as comments appear automagically. The same will be true for the 2009 NFL Draft. We'll have an open thread available to discuss what's happening. As soon as the Patriots pick a player, I'll do my best to throw up a quick player profile. In depth analysis will come in the following week, but the profile will hopefully give you a quick picture of the newest Patriot.
I'll be on most of the day Saturday and Sunday to comment in the Draft thread and write profiles of our newest players. Stop on by and add your two cents.
