    I usually watch most of the first round, but until the Billionaires and the Millionaires decide to reach an agreement, I could give a flip. I will wait and read my favorite teams picks in the paper or on the computer.

    I've given up on all big league team sports.

    Too much money, not enough passion.

    I love the draft. I'll be watching it. I'll be flipping over to it during the hockey playoffs.

    Sorry but I would rather watch my grass grow. Much more excitment involved.

    It's kinda boring IMHO, I can check in later in the evening and see who my Lions got. I'm a little ticked that they can't seem to reach an agreement, and if it ends up like MLB I'm giving up on 'em.

    Nope. I'm a Washington Redskins fan, so there's generally no point in watching the draft. Whoever the team selects will be a huge bust and I don't believe the draft is the proper way to build a team anyway.

    I will be watching as usual.

    I love the draft. Yeah it's hokey and overblown (they could do the whole 7 rounds in about two hours if they wanted to) but it's football and it's fun. Also there are a ton of angles. Who did my team get/trade? How did my teams division do? Which OSU Buckeye's can I no longer root for because they got drafted by the f'ing Cowboys, lol?

    It's all great stuff.

    I never watch the draft. It bores the hell out of me. Of course, I don't watch college football either, so I'm sure that plays a part in my indifference.

    I will see who was drafted later, and be able to read the entire draft's results in far less time than the first round takes if I want to.

    I just hope it isn't all pointless this year!

    I'll be watching it. Do every year.

    I'll be interested to see who is dumb enough to take Cam Newton (Panthers?).
