    I went once, the year they had four picks... Without a doubt the most mind numingly boring experience of my life... but i did see them pick pennington... WHat most people may nt remember, is that when we didn't get Penning at 13 fans were pissed... we thought we missed our shot at him, because everyone knew the Raiders needed a qb, and the crowed lauged and went nuts when Oakland drafted Janikowski instead...

    Went to one years ago. Actually had a good time. (I'm easily entertained when it comes to the Jets)

    Not going to say who they selected, he was one of the biggest busts in Jets history. I liked him.

    I used to work at the NFL league office. As such I was at several drafts. Some I worked at others I just hung out. Either way it is painfully boring. You wait for literally hours between Jet picks. You are better off finding a draft party to go to. I hope Jillians on LI has another one this year. I missed last years. I heard it was pretty good time.

    I`VE been to the draft a # of times over the years ,you basicly get there btween 6-8 am( to be sure to get in) and stand in line and they give you the ticket to get in as you enter ,Iwas the first one in line when we drafted keyshawn .LAST year Iwatched it from NEW ORLEANS jazz fest with jumba ,but the previous couple of years I did draft day parties ,a much better experience and the way to go.

    i went the year they picked keyshawn.

    after he was picked and they put a white jets cap on his bloated yet talented head, he came out to the crowd. He came right towards me, i dont know if it was my good looks or my cologne , but he came right towars me. He stood about 6 or 7 feet in front of me and took off his cap and threw it towards me. It was on a perfect trajectory for my hands. In that slow motion, asit flew to me...i said to myself , "holy sh00t, its going to be mine...this is awsome..."

    and then about 5 people tackled me and i was on the floor. when the smoke cleared, the guy next to me was wearing it.

    no i do not. But they did give us a bunch of free bees like an am radio and some football cards.

    How funny you should say that because i was looking at them cards and wondered what if this guy didnt make it to that team, would the card be worth &#036;&#036;&#036; some day?

    You go the day of the draft it`s free (at least it used to be) you wait on line and the amount of seats they have they give away that morning at about 10:30 am and start letting people in about 11am. if you get there by 7 or 8am you definetly get in ,the first year Iwent the KEYSHAWN draft ,I didn`t know how early you needed to be there bye so Igot there at 10pm the night before ,the next people there showed up at 6am....

    i think its free. i think you just have to wait like hell on line. its worth it if you have a quick pick but after that its a huge bore.

    I heckled joe theisman too. I said "hey joe, what hurt more....when LT broke your leg or cathie lee broke your heart..."

    he heard it too....

    And what an arrogent piece of crappp that boomer from espn is. He was yelling at his assistants, practicing during breaks . he is a very bad man

    1st come first serve...but if you do stay untill the end of the draft they take your name and they send you special tix and you are the 1st let in next year.
