But we should start looking forward to starting soon.
I had a similar thought a couple days ago but then remembered that the schedule is in the OP, and we're in fine shape:

Last year the draft went smoothly and quickly, with no concern about running out of time, using a similar schedule as above. I'd forgotten that we wait to post our cuts after the 3rd week games as well, not just start the draft after those games, so that's pretty much perfect.

I'm assuming we'll probably start the draft right around noon on that Sunday, when the final cuts are due, because why not?
