most intriguing aspect is the fact that after a player gets drafted they can't go talk to their new coach. i'm sure interactions will still happen but it will be an awkward scenario where they will be excited and confused all at the time because they don't know if they are breaking rules or what.
I also am pretty pumped for the start of day 2. Day 1 is the big time names and can be somewhat predictable especially at the top of the draft but now they stop after round 1 for the night and begin rounds 2 and 3 in the morning. i think it's on day 2 where we will see a lot of trades and teams shifting for position to land their guy. teams will call throughout the night and create better deals.
Most uncertain draft in years. The same guy who can go 1st overral, can now drop out of the top 10. The top 2 players a month ago (Bower, Fairly) are still options in the top 5, but may actually fall out of the top 10 or even 15. Can't trade for players, and FA hasn't happened, so teams have more needs which further adds to the uncertainty.
The Qb situation without a doubt. 7 qbs could possibly go in the 1st 2 rounds. I would pay money to see teams draft boards regarding these guys. I bet they are all over the map. I hope Jim Harbaugh has what it takes to sort through them. It will be very interesting looking back a few years from now and see what they've become.
FA after the Draft. It puts a premium on positions of need, and may change teams' strategies regarding those positions. Plus, without a resolution to the CBA mess in sight, are teams willing to draft "project" QBs early under the assumption that they will be a season behind?
