    Which network are you watching the draft on and why?

    NFL network for Mike Mayock and the lack of Mel Kiper.

    NFLN, and it ain't even close. NFLN blows ESPN away in every way possible, so the question why should be self-evident. However, just for the sake of playing along with the OP's query: Mayock > Kiper

    Same here. Mayock might go horse again which was awful, but "The Hair" annoys the shit out of me.

    More than likely I am following the draft from a hospital room and the TV will be commandeered by my daughter.

    So I will be following online and enjoying 'expert' commentary by the miscreants that make up the draft community of texanstalk.com.

    ESPN. NFL Network costs too many extra $ per month for me to justify it.

    Oh man, you're just asking to be messed with...

    With the 11th pick in the draft, the Houston Texans select: Jimmy Smith, CB and stoner from Colorado!

    Agree 1000%! My TV's too nice and expensive to be punching McShay and Kiper's faces in it. Just their appearances make the harnesses on a few haymakers start to loosen

    I accidentally picked ESPN but it'll be NFLN for a few reasons:

    1.) For Mike Mayock & not annoying ass Melvin Kiper

    2.) So i don't have to hear Berman's corny ass squealing the pick before it actually happens (i absolutely hate that which is why i'll still be watching with the volume nearly down to 0)

    3.) The NFLN is closer on the dial to NBA-TV for Comcast as i'll likely be switching back & forth watching ORL & ATL's game 6 tonight.

    4.) My HD comes in so much more crispier on NFLN it gives me goose bumps.....ESPN not so much.

    I prefer NFL Network, but since UVerse doesn't offer it (unless you order the sports package), I am stuck with ESPN.

    NFLN about 80% and Espn 20% (especialy when they look like they are going to talk over the Texans pick, again)

    I'm an anti-watcher:

    When Deoin Sanders starts talking, the channel changes...

    When Kiper starts beating his value dead horse, the channel changes.

    espn by default. would rather watch it on nfln but cant..

    hopefully no f'n ruining the picks by schefter or la canforna. i dont give a shit about knowing 20 seconds earlier. ruins the suspense & reaction when you know

    I went with NFLN, I think it gives a deeper analysis. ESPN also just has a lot of analysts who just blow hot air most of the time.
