A few thoughts about the off season and upcoming draft!

Is it April 30th yet? Football season can't get here soon enough for most fans, and April 30th "Draft day" kicks off the new beginning in my opinion.

General manager Ted Thompson has stuck to his guns in free agency again this year by staying away from signing high price players from other teams. He was able to retain two key players in Randall Cobb and Brian Bulaga to shore up the offense again this year but while keeping the offensive side of the ball in tact he has lost a couple key players on defense.
