I wanted to revisit this as its officially the offseason for us and we will all struggle to keep discussions lively
But why can't the nfl go to a draft lottery for non playoff teams it's a ridiculous system to have teams rewarded for losing games and sitting here wishing the bears would have lost today and last Sunday to up their draft stock
I don't know about all non playoff teams, but maybe any team .500 or worse should have the lottery. Unlike NBA(who's teams didn't even try and hide the fact they would lose on purpose) the NFL the teams aren't trying to lose every week over the last 3-4 weeks so it's not near the issue. But a lottery would add a twist of excitement to the NFL draft.
