I like the changes except making the third round a day 2 pick.....although it will make for some interesting drama when someone showes up for day 1 and then slides to the third round.

I kind of like the changes all except the late start to the draft.. why would they change the beginning to 3 p.m.?
Makes no sense to me. I like the times between picks alot, and think that it will bring more folks in to watch the draft. I for one Love to watch the draft and enjoy all the mistakes that Mel Kiper Jr and Co. make on the players they think are gonna be so great and the ones that make it big that they say will " never make it... or what were they thinkin'?" Wonder what Kiper and Co. are thinking about the Dolphins and their pick of the next Devin Hester?
