When you have a QB run like those two in the open field, it is probably fair that they can be hit like any other. I am sure players must think they are about to slide and then they do a fake and keep running

This second part definitely happens, so you end up in a situation where they either take the hit and draw a flag because it looks like they're going down or out of bounds, or players hesitate and they pick up chunk yards.

I wonder how wild the draft will be tonight. I hope there are no technical difficulties, but I bet a lot of mock drafts are way wrong, and I hope we get plenty of trades. Unique year.

I'd be ok with some funny glitches, I think they are going to pipe in "boos" - finally ol Roger able to make fun of himself and the NFL 'cathedral'

We're looking, ideally, for Denver to take the WR from Alabama that isn't Ruggs. But them getting any big name WR who isn't Jefferson is okay.

Yeah, very surprised. My main GroupMe, which is all my friends locally, all of whom are Eagles fans, were not happy, but eventually accepted it since there's so much speculation and they still got a WR. Imo it was not the right pick, but when Lamb started to fall they should have done what they could to move up. DK wouldn't let me bet on Philly taking Jefferson, which seemed like a safe bet, but it's probably for the best. I figured that Oakland would go WR (both of their selections were vintage Raiders picks), but didn't imagine it'd be Ruggs, so there was definitely some money to be made making that dart throw, but I didn't. Not sure what the odds were on Lamb (largely thought to be first off board to Oakland if no one moved up) going to Dallas, but have to imagine you'd have made a killing if you made that call, which, again, I did not.

Ended up hitting my biggest of the night with Denver. Obviously I am a small time better, but the $3.50 paid out $25, though I got burned on the non-Tua Slide and ended up only up by about $6 on the night when factoring in losses. Did hit on Over 0.5 RBs selected in the first round (just barely), but took the Over on 5.5 Alabama players and Under on 5.5 WRs taken round one. Should have pulled the trigger on Under 4.5 QBs, though didn't for whatever reason. Tbh I only did research for an hour before the draft, haven't been paying attention to coverage, and was juggling a lot of different potential wagers at the time. Oh well. Only action I'll take in the second round is possibly when Swift goes.
