I like watching the draft but it isn't really at all an event for me personally.
Making more set times that mark events in the preseason like everyone starting training camp the same time makes perfect sense. People get up for set dates like that and it is energy they can use for their product.
People on this board are gonna be all HAPPY BACK TO NFL DAY LETS HAVE 12 BEERS.
It makes sense. Sort of like when people go nutsos for pitchers and catchers reporting. And that is (imo) a lesser product.
