Is The NFL Draft Dead?

Matthew WatkinsContributor IApril 20, 2009

Whats up with the NFL Draft? Of course the worst teams are the top picks. The top picks cost too much money. So why would they waste their money on these bad teams.

How ubsurd is the money? Last year, Jake Long signed a five-year, $57.5 million contract, with $30 million guaranteed.The Eagles signed Jason Peters to a six-year, $60 million contract.

A lot of teams like the Giants and the Steelers are in the 20's. St. Louis is No. 2 and they are one of the worst teams in the NFL. They only won two games last year. There have been to many upsets in the draft.

All of this could be because of Madden leaving and its putting a curse on the NFL. One weird thing is that the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh steelers were the last two in the draft and they were in the Super Bowl last year. The Steelers won the Super Bowl and they are last in the draft.

So what is up with the draft this year. All the good teams were near the end of the draft. Why were'nt they near No. 1? Maybe they wanted to see a change and some new stuff planned for the 2009-2010 season.
