According to Adam Schefter on ESPN.com, the NFLPA told players to boycott the draft. On the other hand according to other reports, Patrick Peterson of LSU said that he wants to attend and that no one has told him differently.
It does not matter what side you are on or if you are neutral about the labor dispute. We all have one thing in common. All fans want football. The NFL Draft is a last fix for a football junkie before a long summer of baseball. It is a reward for the former college players, their families, friends, and for their current fans to see them move on to the next level while beginning to add new fans. Now that could all be tarnished.
