Talking about the NFL draft
Checking off a long-desired Bucket List entry, I joined up with the legendary Rich Eisen of the NFL Network on his podcast on NFL.com yesterday. Rich, who logged an awesome 27 hours on-air over three days last week covering the NFL draft, had me on to talk not only about my "NFL Draft Decoded III" piece from last week, but also about the coverage of the draft and the tension between Twitter and the TV networks in the reporting, a new issue that has ramifications beyond sports (and was felt among other places in the marathon bombing coverage). It was a fun discussion that ended with a tentative plan for me to come watch Rich show off his six-flat speed at next year's Indianapolis Scouting Combine. Anyway, check it out.
