Should the NFL draft be abolished?

Just heard a clip from Mike Florio that the draft should be abolished.

That's a crazy thing to do, IMHO. If kids decided where to go play rather than be drafted, it may kill smaller market teams. It would in all likelihood squash family squabbles if grandma were a fan of another team.

Cleveland and Detroit wouldn't have a team. Who wants to live in those dung hole cities?

LOL, it would be very interesting to watch teams blow TONS of money to recruit college seniors. Destination, location, and playoff ability would doom some teams.

It would be an unbelievable carnage of dog eat dog.

Not a good idea. So many small market teams out there would seriously suffer.
