Apparently the TV ratings for this thing were through the roof. NFL is reading that as proof May works, I think it is more about this particular draft having a lot of casual fan interest and mystery personally.
50% increase in viewership. May draft sucks for the fans and draftees. Last years draft was boring because of the lack of QBs and skill players. I dont think the May thing was the key thing that increased the ratings
Yeah I read that about the ratings. That’s insane…. though I think having big named guys like Clowney and Manziel brought a lot more intrigue than the tackles at the top of last year’s draft. However now it definitely seems like the late draft is here to stay. :(
Perhaps. But Manziel was a huge reason for the boost in ratings.
not sure about "huge," but I think you mean the debate over Manziel anyway. I doubt many watched to see the guy. I am sure that some watched to see how NFL teams valued his services.
I could care less about what's his name....oooo yea Manziel. I watched to see who we'd pick. I'll catch the second round pick for us then read the rest on the NFL's website the following day. Watching the entire draft is as bad as watching American Idol. ICK!
