Default How long after the draft will you flip your opinion?

MoC love started an hour after the future armed robber was drafted.

Pick a guy you'd really HATE us drafting and assume we take him in the first round. How long will it take you to get on board and change your opinion, if at all? Honesty counts...

Imo whether I hate or love who we draft it comes down to play on the field my opinion will change at that point.

My homerism is strong, I can't recall a pick I didn't warm up to within a few hours of the draft. And I've HATED some of our picks!

Sanchez is the player. and i wouldn't change my mind until after i saw some return that showed he was worth a 1st round pick.

I'm too much of a "glass half full" guy to not think about the positives a player can bring.

Though in fairness, while I did acknowledge that Mo Clarrett had potential, I never bought into him and was quite happy to see him get cut in camp. I wanted us to take Brandon Jacobs, he'd have been a god among men in our system.

At this point I couldn't go there but what I dont want to see happen in this draft is for us to throw away players like Moss, Crowder, Scheffler etc for little or nothing when none of them have been given a proper chance to show any skills in McD's offensive or Nolan's defensive systems.

That's just plain ****ing dumb when a team already has 10 picks to address needs across the board.

I think the process has usually gone:

1) Bronco's make a pick I hate

2) I die a little inside

3) Walk around angry all day

4) Yell at and/or pick a fight with my family or girlfriend for no reason that they can discern

5) Wake up the next day and consider buying the new player's Jersey

I tend to be pretty objective about things. The Clarrett pick was stupid, and I said so at the time. I'm not going to simply because a guy's name is called after they say 'The Denver Broncos select'...

I'd hate to see us draft Jenkins at 12. Normally when they say a guy is a safety/corner combo, that is draft-speak for 'he isn't good enough to play corner'. We need front seven help.

Although a game breaker at RB wouldn't hurt my feelings either.
