Default Thoughts on the new draft format

Forgive me if this has already been brought up. What is everyone's opinion on the new format? Personally I liked having just one round last night, but I really dread that we have to wait until tonight for more. Anyone know why they didn't go 1st round Friday night, 2-3 Saturday, 4-7 Subday or something like that? I'm going to miss waking up in Draft Day 2 at about 11, getting some breakfast and nursing my hangover for an hour before it all starts again.

Thoughts?

I prefer the old format. Rounds 1-3 on Saturday, 4-7 on Sunday.

This. I don't like it being on weekdays. The weekend was better.

Yeah. Had to go to work this morning with a hangover. Plus, since we traded out of the 1st, we had to go the whole evening without seeing a single Broncos selection. With the old format, we'd already have made three picks (assuming no more trade downs).

I will say that I do like the change from 15 minutes between picks in the 1st round to 10, and 5 minutes in every round thereafter. They should have made that change and kept the rest the same.

I liked waking up and the draft was on. Don't mind the Thurs, Friday, Sat format. I also think it was better seeing the phone calls. Seems like they are trying to take the burden off of the predictions. Now they see who is getting the phone calls but we don't. So we get 1 minute more of suspense, big deal. I'd rather see the emotion of the phone call.

One thing I didn't like was the fact that the twitter world had the pick well in advance of the commish walking to the podium and Mayock pretending like he didn't know and gave correct guesses all night like he was the best predictor in the world.

my gripe wasn't so much twitter but the fact that Mayock surely knew and kept saying I would guess they are going with xyz with this pick.

I understand the move to prime time, but I don't like starting on Thursday and stretching it out.

They should have round 1 Friday night, rounds 2-4 on Saturday, and rounds 5-7 on Sunday. Best of both worlds.

I hate that they wouldn't announce the picks while other teams had already selected. They were talking about who the Titans would take at 20, when everyone knew the Pats had traded up to select Jones at 21 and some ESPN idiots were discussing that Titans might take Jones. Right after that when the Patriots "were on the clock" and the talking heads again were discussing who it might be at 21, you could see in the background that the Steelers were on the clock at 24 already.

I saw a tweet about how the broadcasts were a few picks behind actual picks, causing chaos/confusion.
Anyways, I don't like the new format.
Go round 1 primetime on Friday night, 2-4 on Saturday, 5-7 on Sunday if anything.

I loved all the trades and not knowing who will be picked but they need two rounds the first night.

I like how they don't show players getting the phone calls.. adds to the drama.

Having the draft on Thursday, and Friday is just about ratings.. I would prefer the draft during the weekend.

No draft will ever be complete again now that they have taken whats written in bold away from us.
