The NFL draft is always one of the most anticipated events on the sports calendar, and because of that, there are always plenty of ways to watch it.
ESPN, ABC and the NFL Network will each be having their own broadcasts of the draft during the three-day event, and each with their own panels to discuss how the draft is unfolding.
ESPN will have Mike Greenberg host a panel of Mel Kiper Jr., Louis Riddick and Booger McFarland, with reporters Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson reporting on any news and rumors, and Suzy Kolber interviewing prospects. The final day of ESPN’s coverage will have Rece Davis anchoring Kiper, Todd McShay and Riddick.
ABC will be more oriented toward the college side of things, focusing on the players as prospects, with the “College GameDay” crew of Davis, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard joined on the desk by McShay. Robert Griffin III and Sam Ponder will be on a second set with Laura Rutledge in the green room and Pete Thamel reporting on breaking news. David Pollack will be on the ABC set on Friday. ABC will simulcast ESPN’s broadcast on Saturday.
The NFL Network will feature Rich Eisen hosting Daniel Jeremiah, Charles Davis and Joel Klatt at the main set. Kurt Warner and Ian Rapoport will be on the theater set and Melissa Stark will interview players from the stage. Peter Schrager will replace Warner on the theater stage on the second day, and he will replace Klatt on the last day of the draft.
