The NFL Draft is a wonderful thing … once it finally starts, that is. And it would be even more wonderful if it didn’t drag on and on and on.
“We shouldn’t have to wait 15 or 20 minutes or 30 minutes for the draft to actually start, when it’s starting at 8 o’clock Eastern so that it ends at midnight,” OutKick founder Clay Travis says. “Why not have the draft in a three-hour window just like a regular NFL game?
“Start it at 8, finish it at 11 Eastern, and go ahead and put the team on the clock that is picking first, the moment that the actual draft begins — as opposed to having 15 minutes of fluff, and then Roger Goodell announcing that the first pick is on the clock.”
Speed up the NFL Draft to make it more like a game in terms of time? It’s an idea that makes sense. So check out the video below for Clay’s full take.
