At first I was ok with this format, but I am with you now. Especially because I hate waiting for our pick to find out...we traded down.

I wish they would add more suspense to the 1st round picks we seem to know who everybody is drafting before pick comes in takes alot of the fun out of it.

Goodell is such an A-hole! This is the worst idea to prolong the draft for an extra two weeks! It's bad enough it takes 3 days now!

At least they got rid of the shots with the players on the phone

What was it two years ago where the camera would pan to a player on the phone before he was picked?
There was no suspense at all

Last year Mayock spoiled a lot of the picks though

Cut the time between picks so they have to hustle to do trades and it won't be so damn boring

I heard the ginger wants to make the draft 4 days. ****in retard.

I wish they'd just make it this weekend so I can sit on my ass and flip out on the mane. This Thursday Friday Saturday bull**** is stupid.

What I don't like is that it cuts down on the Rookie's time with the team.
These two weeks are valuable to the team and the rookies to help them get acquainted with the facility and the team operations. Now they're forced to be even further behind.

The draft is a shell of it's former awesomeness. Like all great things in life... Too many people find out about it and it becomes saturated.

I hate that Ginger is trying to extend it to 4 days.
So much overkill.
It should still be Rounds 1-3 and then 4-7.

Hell, I'd even compromise and go with 1-2 1st day, 3-4 2nd day and 5-7 3rd day.

I wonder how the teams feel about it. I assume it gives them extra time overnight to make adjustments and propose trades.

Cannot imagine they like making the draft 3 days + UDFA. Now you take it to 4 nights in the war room + UDFA.

If you don't like it now, just wait till they spread the first round over two nights. Can't imagine how else they'de do it if the draft is extended to four days. I just think that's where the general interest is because the first round guys are the ones that are talked about on tv for months.

I too wish they would go back to the old Saturday / Sunday format.

The proposal was 1st round, 2nd round, 3-5, 6-7

If they expand to 4 days they need to expand the rounds to at least 8 or 9 rounds. But if you do that it'll really screw stories of CFA making teams. And it'll screw CFA that could choice places that they have a shot of making instead going to a places that has deep veteran depth. IE look at the Panthers, any rookie WR should choice to go there because no WR veterans and no WR with return ability.
