Which network has better overall NFL Draft Coverage?

Which network has better overall NFL Draft Coverage?

Love NFLN. They could do with some better analysts but I love Mayock. I think LaConfora is pretty good too when they have him on. Not convinced yet about Lombardi. I also like Baldinger and Brian Billick.

ESPN isn't immune to this either but I hate how many ex-athletes they have as analysts. Being a former athlete doesn't make you a good or even decent analyst.

I believe that Howard Cosell called it the "jockocracy" and hated it.

I never hear anything Baldinger ever says because I can't get past his disgusting pinky



And when anyone else talks, he's constantly saying "mm hmm, mm hmm, mm hmm."
Another reason I like NFLN is that they bring Charlie Casserly in around draft time. I find his perspective to be very insightful.

Yup, just watched the video about this draft being as deep if not better than 1983. Hopefully with 3 picks in the top 50, the Niners won't screw it up.
NFL network by far. I don't get that channel though.

I like ESPN best. Guess I'm just used to Boomer and Kiper.

same here. plus i hope they have Corey Chavous on there too. He was one of the main reason why i enjoyed ESPN's coverage the past few years before the NFLN showed up

Would you believe that I've never actually noticed that?

Maybe he has no opinions and relies on the webzone to form his opinions for him...

I honestly swear up and down he does. He has been a member for f**king ever and has always flooded the boards with polls where he gives no personal opinion then pops back in a day or 2 later sharing the same sentiment as the majority.

GTSCH a long time vet who is now banned blasted this guy like you have never seen, and another cat (can't remember the other cats name but it started with T also) and got heavily warned back in the day because he grew so tired of these opinion-less posts. Dude was also a heavy V-Tech homer and led the draft Jimmy Williams bandwagon around here for a hot minute.

Who cares?

I agree and Charles Davis is a good analyst also. NFLN is the best
NFL Network because of Mayock. He's an a-hole but the guy knows what he's talking about. Kiper's and a-hole who doesn't know what he's talking about. Berman's good though; entertaining.
well considering the channel the nfl network would be on IF my cable had them. and considering all the "insightful and over the top production."....i think i will watch the blue screen nfln, and follow the draft online.
Its gotta be the NFL network. Its not like they have much else going on.

ESPN has far better production, NFLN just looks 3rd rate and they have shuffled people on and off so much there's really no continuity in their coverage. I like Mayock and hope they have Corey Chavous on like they did for SR Bowl, he knows his stuff.
I generally try and watch both, ESPN has a tendency to focus on a few stories over and over (Brady Quinn comes to mind) and not do enough analysis of each pick. I think having Schefter now gives them the edge though.
NFLN just needs to add more guys who know their stuff and less talking heads like fat mouth Dukes and Deon. Adding some ex GM/ scout types and having the same guys every year would make it far better. But I'm not the majority and most probably like the more blow hard types.

This sums it up real well.
