So I've been kicking around the idea that the 6th and 7th round is pointless

I know the draft is a ratings grab and people are going to watch it until the end no matter what, so more rounds basically = more money for ESPN and the NFL Network, but I lost interest in following it past the fourth round years ago, and in a practical sense, there's no purpose for GMs to be doing this because it's clear that there's no discerning what's actually good in the crap pile at least past the fifth round and they might as well be picking names out of a hat by then.

The only problem with not taking a player in the 6th or 7th while planning on signing him as a UFA is that some other team may take him in the 6th or 7th. This seems plainly obvious. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make.

Honestly, if Goodell extends this out to 4 days I wouldn't be shocked if they added another couple of rounds like the old days.
