The three-day run of PFT Live at 30 Rock ends Wednesday with a one-hour, in-studio visit from former NFL running back Brian Westbrook. The Eagles great will talk about the team for which he starred and the dynamic of older running backs changing teams, among other topics.

Calling the program in the 7:00 a.m. ET hour will be our good friend Charean Williams. Recently laid off after 18 years with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Charean serves as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee, and she has served as president of the Pro Football Writers Association. She’s currently a free agent, but she likely won’t be for long.

The question of the day, in honor of the NBA Draft Lottery, focuses on the question of whether the NFL should have a draft lottery, or maybe no draft at all. Answer it, make a comment or two, and then join us at 6:00 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Radio, with the simulcast starting at 7:00 a.m. ET on NBCSN.

  1. NFL doesn’t need it. There never has been any sign of tanking and this includes the made up story of Suck for Luck. No one wants to put out bad tape for themselves and as a GM or coach you will probably be fired if you are picking first (the Colts fired their GM and coach). It isn’t worth risking your job to tank for a pick that has a decent chance of being a bust.

    In the NBA you can get a real game changer who can dominate the league on his own. Only 5 guys play and guys like Lebron play most of the game unlike Hockey players. No NFL player will ever be to dominate like a Jordan or Lebron.

  2. You have the 2 teams with the worst records play each other one week before the Super Bowl …

    the winner gets the #1 pick, the loser drops to #5.

  3. Just dump the compensatory draft picks. Why are teams awarded that either refuse to pay their players or can’t manage their cap efficiency with extra draft choices?

  4. If we do it by lottery, somehow the Browns, despite the odds, would always pick at the bottom of the draft.
