NFL Draft moving to May

Capped off by the draft and the frenzied build up, April has become something of a second season for football fans, left wanting more after the four-hour advertising event known as the Super Bowl. Now, that second season is about to get another week (or so) as the league has moved the draft to May, "early May" to be specific.

What does it mean? Nothing really. Teams and players get an extra week to scrutinize and be scruntinized. The media gets an extra week to yak about it, and we get an extra week to diagnose the players and the picks.

The real question is whether or not they move the first round into a prime time slot.
