Vegas Draft!!

Recommended Posts

Nope.   So will you be in the room where they announce the picks?

Or is it just to go party with NFL fans.  

Sounds cool.

How high were the hotel prices?   Did they jack them up for the event?

Should be a blast having the draft in Vegas this year! I live in Nashville so I was at the draft last year obviously. It was very fun!

They showed the venue during the AFC Championship game, it's going to be outside with the main stage in the middle of the pool (I forget which hotel).  They said the draft picks will be taken to the stage by boat (and no, I'm not kidding).

Wow, that just seems unnecessary to have them boated in on the fountain. lol. 

 

Vegas was pretty cool, lots to see and a crap ton of walking. Definitely the concrete jungle. Have fun!

I am working on my plans this weekend. Went to Nashville last year and it was a blast. Trying to make it an annual pilgrimage.

Nice...I had a buddy (Bengals fan) that won as well. I should have gone when it was on Chitown those two years. Nashville was the first...and won’t be the last.
 

It’s such an amazing event for anybody who is a fan of the NFL.

Ticket price are definitely higher that week but I actually had a comp available and got a 4 night stay free.  I have checked into getting tickets to day 1 but they havent released them yet.  waiting on an email update to see prices and what not.

Well,  I would think they love it the most.   I'm neither,   but I love going to Vegas in the winter.

I can't lie I wasn't a fan of it. Went with my 2 oldest friend (definitely had a fun time), but I can't say I'd go back ever.

 

Wasn't trying to poo poo Vegas if it seemed that way. I can say I did it like everyone should if you've got the chance.

Vegas has something for everyone. The bellagio buffet and seeing shows are the sole reasons we go out every few years.

Yes.  That was the joke.  I should have put a wink at the end.

When I went you had to win the tickets to sit in the auditorium unless you paid thousands and got the NFL on location packages

I have only been to Vegas once and loved it. I probably walked through at least 30 or so different hotels just to see what each were like. All different and neat. The food and buffet's there were all fantastic and free drinks when you gamble. When I was there I stayed 6 nights Fri-Weds, left out early Thursday morning. I was there almost a week. The women there were beautiful too. I gambled and partied all week lmao . I was there in Feb of 2010 so the weather was nice, it was usually around 65 for the highs and 50 for the lows. I stayed at Mandalay Bay, very nice hotel. I will tell you who had a really awesome buffet that was the Wynn. They had everything imaginable.

The weather, some people not handling their alcohol consumption when walking around. And the guys handing me cards for a 'good time' when I'm walking with my wife. Lol

 

Wasn't terrible, but I just wouldn't go back.

I have a timeshare in Vegas I bought in 2007 and have never been back there since then, have exchanged it for other places. Some day I will go back, just not at the top of my list of places to visit now.

I went to the NFL Drafts  for 6 years. The Philly Draft was my last one because it was impossible to get tickets to enter the Draft even though there were a bunch of empty seats.  I went from the First pick on day 1 until the last pick. 

 

It was a lot of fun but the NFL sells a package to the days of the draft called NFL on location and they are like $2500 a day.

 

I have been on the NFL Network and ESPN at the draft. I was also in the movie Draft Day.

 

I am dressed up in the Blue Zoot Suit and Blue Beard.

 

It will be really packed. Don't carry a bag into the draft. They have strict rules.

 

If I can answer any questions let me know.

I've been to Vegas more times then I can count, often times for shows/conventions, races, etc.  There is something major going on out there about every weekend of the year.  I was out there last year for the SHOT show which is one of the biggest draws they have each year and prices were the same as always.  Been out for Tyson fight, UFC weeknds, and Nascar races also.  Would like to go out for the first week of March Madness sometime, just haven't made it.

The Nashville draft was free...so I would assume Vegas will be...especially with it being on the strip.

 

If it’s anything like Nashville...there will be a virtual waiting room that opens when the gates open for the Draft Experience that day (typically around noon). You have to be in the area to enter on the app...and do it immediately. My brother-in-law somehow got #15 the first day. A set number of people will be allowed into the front section to watch...behind the Super fans and media. 
 

I am very intrigued to see how Vegas does this. It’s going to be incredibly crowded.

I have not been for March Madness...but I have heard the weekend before (conference tourneys) are a great time to go as well.

My wife used to take me to Vegas every year on my birthday, until the funds kept running out! An addictive place, fun and entertaining as long as your will is stronger than the temptation.

    • Steelers are in a worse cap crunch case and need to be within 30% of CBA resigning players this year.  NT/weak-side Javon Hargrave would help part of our DL issue and is better vs the run than Chris Jones and would cost less to obtain in FA.     By all calculations on team-based needs Brown and Kinlaw should be draft early leaving Gallimore available for us to select in Round 1.  Autry is our weakest DL and biggest disappointments this past season.  Gallimore in college has a history of forcing a fumble or two,  getting to QBs and even been credited with PBUs.   Houston was a great FA addition at weak-side and continues to play strong be it a 3-4 or 4-3 base defense.  In Round 2 I would like to see us address our SS or even TE but would not mind adding more depth on the edge with Jonathan Greenard (Florida).  Greenard would help add depth to our weak-side rotating with Houston who is a FA after the upcoming year.  Enjoyed watching Greenard's game tape vs Miami and him punching the ball out.  Maybe it was the turnover chain motivation but the kid is good FFs and defending passes.  Just the awareness to not only make game tackles but mental aspect to look for ways to create turnovers at the same time playing full speed has Greenard on my radar to pick.  Greenard should hear his name called early in Round 2.   The other edge player who has caught my eye as of late is the Michigan State walk-on Kenny Willekes.  Willekes insanely high motor and ultra-competitive played both weak/strong side with success FFs and PD.  Willekes I figure will go Rounds 2-3.   Adding and upgrading our IDL to force more inside pressure on QBs will help our edge players when the QB gets flushed out of the pocket.  
    • Maybe not that, but he got waffled upside the head by a gym machine today!  https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.tmz.com/2020/02/20/antonio-brown-gym-accident-video/?ved=1t%3A45442      
    • What is your bar for a high draft pick going on year three? (DE)    Are you satisfied with a Turay just being depth player? 
    • That's a pretty high bar. So he has to have at least 10 sacks to impress you
    • There are more than 25 WRs rated 6.0 or higher this year, so not really worried if the 15-20 are gone by 75. I think 15-20 is pretty unlikely as 20/75 would mean that 27% of all picks are WRs (WRs only make up 11% of starters).... I also think there will be several quality X WRs still available at 75, which IMO is our biggest WR need.
