Draft week has finally arrived. But Draft day hasn’t. So, we’ll save our in depth one sentence draft coverage till Thursday.
What’s important today — or should I say tonight — is the awesome meteor shower that will supposedly turn the sky into the 4th of July tonight. As much as a hundred shooting stars per hour, is the word from the NASA type geeks. If you’re still sucking on the weed, this would be a terrific evening to roll out your best blunts.
For the religious minded among you, consider this evening a preview of the Apocalypse, when God rains fire down upon the earth.
For Jets and Browns fans, sorry, there’s no help for you. You’re doomed. Tonight is a good night to get out on the lawn and hope one of those meteors has your name on it.
For Rolando McClain fans — seriously, what were you thinking?! You’d be better off being a Craig Dahl fan.
Dahl will be glued to the first round of the draft this Thursday, that’s for sure. If the 49ers take a safety, he knows his shot at the starting job was nothing but a whiff of madness. If the 49ers don’t take a safety, he’ll be a happy guy and we fans will get a whiff of something quite different.
It’s been said and then passed around as a saying until it acquires saidness that the strength of this year’s draft is in rounds 2 and 3, not in round 1. If that’s true, it’s hard to see 49er GM Trent Baalke tossing away picks to move up to the middle of round 1. Especially having a 31-34 cluster to get two top talent guys. But I can see him tossing away late round picks to move up in rounds 2 and 3 for either more studs or particular targeted ones.
At any rate, we have, as you can see by the clock to the right, three days, and counting down, remaining in this year’s You Be The GM tournament. After that, we will become JUDGES!
