Default NFL Network or ESPN?

Who's draft coverage will you watch this weekend?

and yes... a poll is coming

Personally I'm going with the NFL Network. Just can't stand Kiper these days.

I really love the draft theme music on ESPN, but you cannot do better than Mayock for actual quality.

I end up flipping back and forth, its funny when you get Mayock and Kiper syncing up about the same player. They have a 180 degree divergence on the same exact player, and nearly every time, Mayock ends up right.

love ESPNs music when each pick is made, but Mayock >>> Kiper all day every day.

The bad thing about NFLN coverage is that Adam Schefter wont be there this year. NFLN need to just suck it up and pay Adam what he wants. Its just not gonna be a same without him using his vast network of inside sources to announce the picks before the commish does.

I'm in a hotel in San Diego so it's ESPN for me as that is all I get. Not so bad when you consider last year I was in Hawaii for the draft and two years ago I was in Thailand three years ago i was in Brazil. Thanks to Garcia I got updates in Brazil.

If you have a choice theirs no question you have to go with NFL network. They just know what they're talking about, plain and simple. Mayock has way surpassed Kiper in what they do.

Mayock stands out and I stated ESPN but truthfully I will be flipping back n forth to see the coverage on the broncos. Whoever covers the Broncos, gets my viewing eyes.

There is no comparison ... ESPN is a joke. Take it from a guy who had NFL Network since Day 1, and had it yanked out from under him 14 months ago.

Mayock is great, their presentation is great, interviews, access, etc .... plus no Kiper.

Mayock is great but Kiper's no dummy

I give Mayock an A+ and Kiper a B plus they have Todd Mcshay hes pretty good.

I'll tune in on ESPN its been my Draft coverage since I was 13 I can't just walk away from it.

No choice since the NFL Network isn't carried on Time Warner.

I'll be working both on two TV's but NFL network is WAY better than Espin. There was a mile long chasm between the two at last years' draft.

NFLN for me, but I'm really going to miss Schefter. With E!spn bringing him in, I might, might have to give the a shot next year. That move shows me that E!spn might be thinking their audience is smarter than a 5th grader (booyah!)
