I'll start with a plug for PFW's nationally syndicated radio show. Draft expert Nolan Nawrocki appeared on the show this week, and he will be appearing on the show for at least the next three weeks. At some point we'll have an extensive draft show, most likely in the week leading up to the draft. We'll keep you posted as to the details.

This week, Nolan took a few minutes and gave a general draft overview. The great Russell v. Quinn debate came up, as did his thoughts on a couple fast-rising players.

The best thing about the segments with Nolan is that everyone comes away knowing more about what's going to happen on the last Saturday and Sunday in April. The term "insider" gets tossed around quite a bit these days, but here is a case where it fits perfectly. The man knows what he is talking about.

You can catch our show on the Web at this link. (You will need to create a log-in name and password, but it's free.) Also, our list of our radio affiliates is here.

If you are unfamiliar with our show, we also cover the NBA and college basketball in the winter, spring and summer. Lakers assistant coach Jim Cleamons co-hosts the basketball portion of our show with PFW publisher and editor Hub Arkush.

I'll finish with this note: The NFL apparently really, really wants to fill some seats on the draft's second day. From NFL.com:

Fans who attend Day 2 of the draft (Sunday) in its entirety will be able to receive a ticket for the 2008 draft by filling out a form that will be available on that day only at Radio City [Music Hall] for submission after the final selection.

Seats are first-come, first-serve and are free.

I can see the appeal of watching the first round of the draft in person. I cannot see the appeal of sitting through Rounds Four through Seven. Even the most ardent amateur draftnik might lose focus come the compensatory picks of Round Six. So no, tickets to Draft Party 2008 wouldn't appeal to me.

But maybe I am missing the point here. Thoughts?
