NFL Draft Sees "Wheeling And Dealing" Theme As Eight Picks Were Traded In First Hour
Published April 27, 2012
BEST. DRAFT. EVER.: ESPN's Mike Greenberg said, "The rookie wage scale ... is the best thing that ever happened to the history of mankind, ever. Last night's NFL Draft -- I don't care what anybody says about it, 'How can you just sit there and watch the draft? There's no game going on,' -- that is the most entertaining night of television of the entire sports year. Trades are coming fast and furious, the picks are coming faster than Goodell can actually get out onto stage to announce them in the early going. Surprises galore, trades galore. It was a remarkable, fabulous night" ("Mike & Mike in the Morning," ESPN Radio, 4/27). NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, on the NFL Draft: “It’s really a reality show is what it’s become” (“NFL Draft,” NFL Network, 4/26).
