I absolutely cannot go until after April 30th. However, I don't think I have any picks until the 4th round...so does my vote matter?

I would like to draft as soon as possible, as well. I'm fine waiting until the first week of May to accommodate instinctive.

I was kidding about the April 28 thing... Sorta. :-)

I understand the reasons some may want to wait. Waiting until later will show how some rookies are acclimating to their teams, veterans may get cut, people may get injured... But I believe that dynasty owners should be drafting players based on talent, not situation.

I voted May, but would like to wait at least a couple weeks after NFL draft to finish my big board and consider/offer trades. Ready to see this draft already!

I voted for April but it does no matter to me either. I don't have my first three picks this year.
