I always watched ESPN in previous years but i recently switched to direct tv so i currently have the option of NFL network. I hate when ESPN ruins the picks by showing the players on the phone and crying before the pick is announced by the commish.. does NFL Network ruin the picks too? Which coverage is better?

I couldn't stand Steve Young on ESPN (not sure if he is on the ESPN draft "team" this year) and I love Mayock so I prefer NFLN. </P>

For the first time in about 20 years, I'm not going to be watching the draft, with the Rangers in game 7 and all. Be strange to just follow it on the internet tracker!!

Netflix and checking in on this board to see who we picked, then quickly getting off before all the threads calling the pick the worst in draft history....until the next pick.</P>


I'm with Romo.....it's a monotonous process to watch.</P>

I always watch the first round and then just browse the boards (and twitter in more recent years). First round is fun because of the potential trades and such.

There is suppose to be a gentlemens agreement between NFLN and ESPN to not show players on the phone pre-announcement and also to not announce the name if they know it prior to the pick.

Rich Eisen from NFL network was on wfan yesterday and said they are not aloud to show any players on their cell phones this year, and they have to stop showing green room footage when ateam has two minutes left on the clock.

NFLN hands down.

As was said they will not be showing the players geting the calls. I heard that on Sirius which is also hands down the way to go if you have satellite radio.

I usually watch ESPN but I am so tired of Chris Berman placating everyone and Jaworski/Hogge highschool geek crew.

This year I'll be enjoying from behind a computer at work. I do have my draft guide though.

Screw that. Twitter is the source. I already know who the Steelers are going to pick.

Between the Giants beat writers and Adam Schefter I've had all the picks about two ahead. Like the Pats just traded to Denver's spot in the 1st and grabbed Hightower.

Yeah. Hightower seemed to have actually really wanted to play here. I'm sure he'll be just as happy in NE for many of the same reasons that he said he wanted to play here for.

I switch on commercials, but I prefer NFL Network. Mel Kiper is amusing in short bursts, but I can't watch him for 3 hours haha Mayock is the man though.
