Losing the interest of an entire region of football fans during one of the most exciting times of the year is not a good look for the league, but that is just what has happened as New England Patriots fans just can't get as excited for the draft as usual. For the draft diehards, it's just a headache not having a first rounder and they'll continue to watch, but for the casual Patriots fan, the first round guys and the stars are what they know, and if they know that the Patriots aren't getting one of these top 32 players, why should they get excited?
What we say here at Patriots Insider is simple- pay attention to Thursday because the Patriots could jump up to 29, 30, or 31, and if they don't, so be it. On Friday, you should have your TV tuned to the NFL Draft and your computer on Patriots Insider because we will be providing live updates on our live blog and we'll also be providing video updates as well. Patriots fans, we know it's unfair that they can't pick on Thursday, but with 11 picks on Friday and Saturday combined, the rest of the weekend is yours!
