How the NFL Draft Surpasses March Madness

The NFL draft is a three-day event that is better than March Madness. It is the most exciting time of the year for football fans and the most unpredictable. You never know what picks your favorite teams are going to make and what trades they are going to pull off.

The NFL draft also provides an opportunity for college football players to fulfill their dreams of making it to the next level. During the draft, many players sit with their family and friends, anxiously waiting for their name to be called by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The first round takes place on Thursday followed by Rounds 2 and 3 on Friday. The fourth through seventh rounds take place on Saturday, when you get to see players hugging their family members after hearing their names called.

It’s like a dream come true for those who have worked hard since they were kids to play professional football.”

On a Thursday night in late April the NFL Draft brings together the best prospects from the college game and the 32 teams who are looking to rebuild and improve their rosters. The draft is a spectacle. The event has all of the drama, tension, and entertainment that March Madness lacks.

The draft is not just one single event, but three days jam packed with three rounds on Thursday night, five rounds on Friday night, and four rounds on Saturday afternoon.

Each day of the draft brings new storylines, surprises, and intrigue. On Thursday night there are players that fall down the board due to off field issues or injury concerns. There will always be an Aaron Hernandez or Reggie Bush scenario where a player that was considered a top ten pick falls out of the first round because of character concerns. This makes for great television as fans see how far some of these players fall over something they did off the field.

The second day of the draft is where we find out which teams made great value picks throughout the first two days. Players like Tom Brady and Marques Colston were drafted in later rounds, but turned into franchise players for their respective teams. On Saturday fans are able to watch as some of these players get picked up by their favorite teams in hopes that they can grow into

When the NCAA tournament ends, there’s a little bit of a void that it leaves in its wake. You’re not sure what to do with yourself; you’re not sure what to watch. There isn’t really anything like March Madness in sports, so you’re left with a feeling of emptiness and looking for something to fill that void.

Luckily for us, the NFL Draft is right around the corner. The NFL Draft has come so far in recent years that it is now very comparable to March Madness. It is an event where all 32 teams compete against one other and try to acquire the best prospects from college football. The excitement is unmatched; fans are on the edge of their seats as they see if their favorite team will pick a player that will change the franchise or whether they will be disappointed by the selection.

The draft begins on Thursday night at 8:00 PM EST when Roger Goodell comes out and announces who will be selected first overall. There will be 255 players selected over seven rounds and three days, but it all begins with that one pick in prime time made by the Cleveland Browns, who finished 1-15 last season and hold the top pick.

Unlike March Madness, however, this is not a one-day event; this is spread out over three

The NFL draft is upon us and it has the potential to be even more exciting than March Madness. In fact, I think it will surpass March Madness in terms of excitement and I’ll tell you why. The past 4-5 years the NBA draft has been fairly predictable and we’ve seen a lot of big men go very early. It’s a lot like college basketball this year where there are a handful of dominant big men (Kanter, Valanciunas, Aldrich). The same trend has been true in the NFL. The best players have typically been the big guys on the line or the speedsters that run a 4.3 40 yard dash.

But this year is going to be different because there is no one player that is absolutely dominating everyone else. There are 5-6 players that could go first overall and they are all very different. We still have the offensive linemen, but then we also have Von Miller (outside linebacker from Texas A&M) and Patrick Peterson (cornerback from LSU). Peterson has made it clear he wants to be picked first and there is no doubt he has the talent to do so with his speed, size and athleticism. Miller may not be as flashy as Peterson, but he’s got great instincts for rushing

On the surface, it’s easy to see why the NFL Draft is less popular than March Madness. The NCAA tournament has buzzer beaters, Cinderella stories, and three weeks of non-stop action. It’s a thrilling spectacle that ends with one team being crowned as champions. Meanwhile, the NFL Draft is a four-hour event on a Thursday night in late April that lacks any real suspense or excitement.

Despite the obvious differences between March Madness and the NFL Draft, there is one big similarity: they are both events that fans love to debate and discuss. In March, everyone becomes an expert on college basketball — offering their opinions on which teams will make a run to the Final Four or which upsets they predict in their brackets. Then in April, everyone becomes an expert on football — evaluating prospects and projecting how each player will fare once they get to the NFL.

Why do so many people love debating about the draft? Because it’s about more than just football — it’s about human nature and psychology.

If you like March Madness, you’re going to love the NFL draft.

The first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night drew an overnight rating of 6.1, up 12 percent from last year’s 5.4 rating, according to ESPN. That ties last year’s final rating for the highest-rated first round in cable history.

This is the first year that ESPN has aired the draft live in prime time on all three days. The second and third rounds are Friday night, and rounds 4-7 are Saturday afternoon.

The NFL draft has been growing in popularity for years, but that growth has accelerated since ESPN began airing it live in its entirety in 2006. For example, last year’s draft had a final rating of 2.6 (with 4.35 million viewers), more than double the 1.3 rating it got when it was broadcast live only on Saturday in 2005 (the final day of the draft).

In 2009, the draft’s first day drew a rating of 2.7 with 4.62 million viewers, both records at that time for ESPN’s coverage of the event. The NFL Network also broadcasts most or all of the draft each year and its ratings have also been growing rapidly since 2006; this year’s first round drew a record

If you’re a football fan, there’s a good chance you’re not just a fan of football, but also a fan of the National Football League. If this is the case, then it’s likely that you’re also familiar with the NFL Draft. The NFL Draft is the process where each NFL team drafts new prospects to beef up their teams. The stakes are high, and the decisions made can make or break a team, which is what makes the draft so exciting!

The draft has become nearly as popular as the Super Bowl. In fact, many fans would argue that it surpasses it entirely. Here are three reasons why you should tune into the next draft:

1) It’s more thrilling than any other sporting event

2) It’s open to anyone who wants to watch (unlike the Super Bowl)

3) It offers more value for your entertainment dollar
