ESPN needs improvement
Thought a 2 * was to high for this.
It's all u can really get right now...
But I listen to them for about 20 minutes and I hear them contradict themselves a lot ... To the point I think it's a lot of garbage, but I just downloaded the March 22nd episode--- I love the draft even if I only get a few good things out of their podcast.
Two guys who have next to no credibility with NFL management - neither has ever worked a day in the NFL nor played anywhere near the NFL.
Basically information gatherers but not player evaluators as the NFL Network "Caught in the Draft" series pointed out. Are dependent on what their contacts tell them.
In these podcasts they reveal themselves to have gigantic egos, continually shout at & talk over each other and have a moderator who interjects himself far more than warranted.
I can appreciate that Kiper is something of an institution & has been doing this for 30+ years but could be so much better if some of the ESPN Insiders - guys like Bill Polian who have tremendous hands on experience and knowledge were involved.
