    Cutting the intervals is a no brainer. If a team doesn't have a decision made before their pick comes around, they might as well put the names on their list in a hat and just pick one.

    Should be 10 minutes instead of 15 for a 1st round selection. That would shed a little over 2 1/2 hours off the first round.

    I heard on TV (so no link), that if they shorten the time, they might move the first round to Friday night!!!

    But if they shorten the time, ESPN will lose 375 Commercials in the first round alone. ESPN could lose billions in revenue. I wonder if the NFL has ESPN’s permission.

    if they did shorten the time I'd send a thank you letter to roger goddell

    btw what ESPN has thought about doing for the draft is
    first round on friday in prime time
    second-fourth round on saturday
    fourth-seventh on sunday

    That would certainly give some of the looser cannons more time to let AJ take advantage of them.


    :lol:
