I thought Keyshawn was good as well. I thought he was objective, well spoken, and appeared to have done some homework on the picks.

My problem with Keyshawn was that he seemed to put being right in front of everything else. Personally I hate people like that, theres a difference between being objective and yelling louder then everyone else so people percieve that you're winning a debate.

I felt like he started out all right but after a while you can just see he was pissed off that everyone wasn't worshiping the ground he walked on. I was also surprised that Jaws spent most of his time in arguments that added nothing to the draft coverage. That disapointed me to because I feel that Jaws is one of the best analyst out there right now.

Mayock also annoyed me when he got into a pissing match with Adam Schafter over the Randy Moss story, claiming that we should pay more attention to the 5th and 6th round picks. Come on Mike, everyone isn't a football junkie, to keep people around on the second day you have to keep them hooked and the Randy Moss story did just that.

In conclusion I say that we move Mel Kiper to NFL Network and Mike Mayock to ESPN. I think someone else pointed out on this thread that Rich Eison is a lot easier to take then Chris Berman, which in my opinion is right on the money.

NFL Network is great during the season but ESPN has the draft locked up for now.
For now being the key word.

ESPN's Quinn and Moss coverage was simply over the top and unbearable

ESPN Vs NFL Network Draft Coverage

I personally hate how Berman tries to sound smart by 'predicting' the pick right as the commissioner goes the podium.

I can't stand him anymore. I think I'm making the switch to NFL network this year.


Which network do you prefer?

Re: ESPN Vs NFL Network Draft Coverage

The whole thing is over kill in my opinion. It's just drama. Who cares if Brady Quinn's girl is with him on draft and what she has on? It's just turned into a big production. That being said, I'm glad the NFL has decided to shorten the time between rounds and only televise the first two.

I think that this thread needs to be merged if I am not mistaken. If I am making a mistake forgive me.

Re: ESPN vs NFL Network

With this one

Edit: Personally I prefer NFL Network, but I will flip back and forth between the 2 just for the information. It doesn't matter to me who is presenting it. I could not stand the Def Poetry Jam they did on NFL Network for the draft last year though. Whenever they showed that or went to a commercial, I went right over to ESPN.

His slurred speech used to drive me crazy. It reminded me of my high school position coach. Since last year he has begun to grow on me. I think that it all started when he and Adam Schefter got into that heated discussion over Randy Moss at last years draft.

Re: ESPN vs NFL Network Draft Coverage

I like ESPN's coverage solely because they have Mel Kiper. His conviction and passion when he provides player analysis is very infectious. Mel might not always be right, but he certainly appears to believe that he is. Lastly, kudos to any guy who can make a career out of focusing on this one day each year.

Re: ESPN vs NFL Network Draft Coverage

Mel Kiper is like some sort of Rain Man. It's amazing how he takes no notes.

What's really crazy is when he talks about other sports. He's actually pretty knowledgable in several sports.

Re: ESPN vs NFL Network Draft Coverage

The Skins should hire mel kiper to help out with the draft and then give him some other bs publicist position for the rest of the year. How much do you think it would take for him to be exclusive?
