I'll go ESPN the first night, then to NFLN the others.

Reasoning, I will be at my apartment that only has ESPN, then will be at a friends that has NFLN and will watch it on that

Since I have Time Warner and do not get NFLN, I will probably tape ESPN so I can fast forward afterward and just get the "expert" reaction and not the other fluff. I will watch the NFLN online live, because I like most want the drama of not knowing before announced. Im in my early 40s and I remember when the draft was on Tuesday mornings, and I would be allowed to skip school to watch it. The best part was the surprise Jeff Lageman picks and then listening to Mel rip it apart. Its not the same without the shock factor. Either that, or I am just getting old....

I'll watch NFLN but during their ads I'll switch to ESPN, I cannot stand ads so switching is the better option for me.

I know Eisen was trying to get encourage teams not to call the players before the pick is in but I doubt this is going to happen. Will NFLN just not be showing these phone calls or is this all conjecture at this point?

This thread convinced me to watch ESPN for day 1 instead of making the conversion to NFL. Definitely going NFL day 3; day 2 is up in the air.

Probably ESPN for me. I'll record both on DVR, and watch NFL Network's coverage the following week. The past couple of years I've gone back and forth, but wont do that this time around. It's too helter skelter and the commercial breaks give me the opportunity to get other things done. Plus, I ended up not watching the recording of NFL Network because I knew I had watched parts of it already, so wouldn't enjoy it as much.

I started watching the draft in 1990 when I got out of the military. I couldn't watch it while in high school because my mother thought cable tv was an unnecessary expense, and was stationed overseas for a few years after high school.

But when I was able to finally to watch it on ESPN I was hooked. Had to watch every second possible. Loved the way ESPN took the draft serious, had reporters at several different team locations, and they gave Kiper plenty of time to analyze the players and picks. And I though Berman did an excellent job.

Now with two networks covering it, neither seems capable of doing as good of a job as ESPN used to do. They kind of get in each other's way and don't have as much space to work with as ESPN used to. Plus, ESPN's draft coverage isn't as enjoyable as it used to be. Berman doesn't seem to have the energy and enthusiasm he used to have for it, Kiper often looks like he just ate rotten eggs because he doesn't get as much time to explain his reasoning as he'd like, and some of the people they've had sitting with Kiper and Berman make me want to change it to NFL Network. Hopefully their coverage will be better this year.

And NFL Network looks like they've been relegated to the children's table at Thanksgiving dinner. And they seem to get on each others nerves by the end of the day, especially on Saturday's coverage. The camera trick that changes the size of their heads is pretty funny though. I like Eisen, put have to admit he gets on my nerves sometimes. Paul Bermeister would be a better choice as their lead.

In the future I'd like to see just NFL Network cover it, with ESPN getting paid to loan Kiper to them. Would be interesting seeing some back and forth between Mayock and Kiper. With one network covering the draft they'd be able to greatly improve the coverage, if they do it right.

I'm traveling for work and will be in a hotel that doesn't have the NFL Network so ESPN by default. I'll DVR the NFL broadcast to watch later.

This is not correct. During Rich Eisen's last podcast he stated that although he in conjunction with some NFLN executives tried to make it a policy not to tip the picks, that they did not succeed.....NFLN and ESPN will both be tipping the picks this year as usual.

I like the way NFL.com does it. Updates really quick. If I remember correctly they had some trades updated on the website before they were announced on TV.

Here in the UK, the Draft isn't on TV - contract negotiations still going on or some such rubbish. So will be stuck with NFL Network online.

THIS. Plus there is nostalgia attached to watched Kiper on ESPN. During commercials I'll switch to whichever one is on.
