The three-day draft isn’t going anywhere.
Roger Goodell said during an NFL Network interview with Rich Eisen to be aired Wednesday night that, “I’d be hard-pressed to think we won’t go with the two-night primetime
start, and the three-day draft.”
This hardly comes as a surprise.
We said the new format would be a home run before the draft, and the excellent ratings guaranteed the format will stick. (With that said, we’re not sure the ratings truly defeated expectations. We knew they’d be high.)
Goodell also confirmed that the draft could possibly move to another city other than New York, perhaps just for one day.
The draft is my only home game of the year and Radio City Music Hall is an excellent place to spend a Saturday afternoon, so I selfishly hope they don’t go anywhere.
