This is the first draft I have watched. Do the teams usually take the full 15 mins or however long they get to pick. I would imagine the first couple would know who they want to take and be able to pick relatively quickly, unless they are holding out for a trade.

Its been reduced to 10 minutes because teams were taking the piss as every one of them know who they want to pick and they exhaust every possible scenario pre-draft, and as a result people were changing the channel. Most teams take the full time allocated to see if they get any decent trade offers.

Roger Goodell has been spot on with the re-shuffling of the draft to make it more attractable to viewers.

Nice one - cheers.

Makes sense to reduce it to ten minutes. Might get to see the first half dozen picks before I hit the sack!

Working tomorrow, so I reckon I'll sit up till around 2 tops. Didn't bother with off season game pass, but now that it's the free draft weekend, I'd forgotten how good some american adverts were.

And also just how much we get ripped off by Pizza Hut and Domino's over here.

This could be a contender for the worst pick ever if it happened, Jason LaCanfora reporting the Raiders might take CB DJ Hayden who is a workout warrior. Someone might want to check ol' Al is still ticking.

That's me set for the night now. Avoided any of the media sources all day to keep myself away from any news. Not the best draft this year but one that has lots of trade potential and for me that is half the fun tonight. I half expect to stay up all night only for the Broncos to not have a pick this round.

Been watching NFL Network since 5PM. As people above have said this is a very poor class and doesn't have a Franchise QB, RB, WR, i miss the excitment of having the elite 5 blue chip players in the top 5 however because this is a weak class ive got a good fealing it will be exciting because not many players seam like solid bets.

Also, im getting sick of all this Manti Teo talk.

Few mocks have Lotulelie going as far down as 24th, i would hope we (steelers) snatch at him because i strongly believe he will be one hell of a DT, though a saftey would be lovely.

Opinions on the first overall pick?

If Star makes it to 10 and the Titans don't take him I'll be raging. No way he drops to 24.

I have a feeling KC will take Fisher #1.

Browns have been in contact again with the Pats over a trade for Ryan Mallett. Pats want "at least" a 2nd round pick but the Browns don't have one.

A 2nd for a player drafted in the third and who has had zero chance to do anything. What he has done has been abysmal.

Anyone want Rusty Smith? We want a 2nd & a 3rd. He's started an NFL game.

Yea i have a feeling your right but they might know something that we don't. I guess the great thing about the draft is that anything can happen, no one suspected De Castro to fall to the steelers at 24 last year, ya neva know.

And yea pretty sure they will take Fisher but wrong choice IMHO, Joekel is just all round better with more potential, time will tell.

Browns annoy me, Its because they take numerous flyers on QB`s i can appreciate that but come on, Weeden and if your right, Mallet? If Bellichek really rated him then he wouldn't trade him for a second rounder.

There was a lot of Titan fans raging that we passed on De Castro last year and took Kendall Wright instead. In hindsight they were right.
