Where to watch the draft: ESPN or NFL Network

The 2006 NFL Draft will be televised on both ESPN and the NFL Network this year so the big question is, where are you going to get your coverage?

On the one hand, ESPN has got 26 years of experience so they know what they’re doing. On the other, it might be time for a change. NFL Network has Rich Eisen, Mike Mayock (yeah, we couldn’t pick him out of a lineup either) and Corey Chavous. Not exactly a dream lineup but not completely terrible either. ESPN’s got Chris Berman, who, if you aren’t sick of yet, you aren’t paying attention.

At the end of the day, ESPN’s got Mel Kiper. And draft coverage without Mel Kiper is like Comedy Central without Dave Chappelle. Still, we’ll be checking out the NFL Network’s coverage just to see what they have to say. And we suspect a lot of people will as well. This could be the lowest rated draft for ESPN in years.

I’ll try NFL Network… — I’m so sick of Chris Berman’s trite classic rock references. “As the big wheel keeps on turnin’ blah blah blah blah. As long as NFL Network doesn’t use “War Room” as well, I’ll be cool with their coverage.
