ESPN and NFL Network to Not Show Players Getting Calls Before Picked for Draft

One of the biggest draft day busts the past few years has been how NFL Network as well as ESPN has shown players getting picked before the actual announcement came in.

According to Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated, the NFL, ESPN, the NFL Network are currently discussing ways not to tip draft picks as much this year as they have in the past.

The NFL confirmed it won’t show draftees on the phone in the green room before the announced pick on the first night of the draft.

“It’s also in effect for NFL Network and ESPN, which may broadcast from other locations such as a player’s house or an agent’s office,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told NFL.com on Wednesday.
