I have every NFL draft since 1994 on VHS tape. It's fun to go back at this time of year and watch parts of them to see just how wrong (or how right) the analysts were after each pick.

Does anyone else do this or am I in a league of my own?

i personally don't have all the drafts on tape, but im pretty sure my grandpa has most of the drafts taped since the 70's, back then it wasn't very popular at all, just something fans read about in the paper...

But yeah, ive watched some drafts recently, i watched 1998-2002 last year, its fun not knowing half those guys. But i watched the 2006 nfl draft, and i feel like it was the most entertaining because there were so many heralded prospects. Its insane.

I enjoy reading old prospect reports and/or rankings.

I would like to go back and watch the Chiefs draft Tony Gonzalez again. Probably the last 1st round pick to amount to anything for the Chiefs.

It'd be awesome to watch no-name guys get drafted who ended up becoming NFL stars. Fans on the tape would be all "ho-hum", but you'd know what was going down... :D

Can we go on a date? I'd like to revisit a draft or two.

I hope thats a joke it would probably take him like a decade to do that especially considering its on vhs.

I'd have to make a heck of a profit to cover all of the expenses. I've never converted VHS to DVD, but I'd imagine 16 years x 6 hours per year would be awfully expensive.

yeah good point. I don't really know what that would cost either. It'd be cool to have all those drafts online though

no reason at all to go VHS => DVD => HDD

You'd go VHS=>HDD via capture interface of some sort, which most computers have now a days, and if not, you could get one relatively cheap. You could cut out all the commercials and BS and compose a video of just said team's picks and then create a DVD. But that'd take a lot of time. There is very little cost in getting it onto your HDD though. The cost would be #1 the capture card #2 a few terabyte drives to hold it all.

it's the terrabyte thing that might cost a pretty penny

That's dedication man. Props to sticking with your passion.

Also, instead of the onerous task of transferring everything to Youtube, you should just take screens of Mel Kiper's head from each year and make a quick little clip. Try to keep the head size and viewing angle similar.

Watching his hair over the past 16 years would be fascinating.

You have got to be joking Gonzo might be the only HOF but the Chiefs have had some pretty good first round picks.
