    Guise! Last draft they stopped going to the green room camera to show the players taking phone calls before they were officially picked, so do any of you know if they will be not be doing that again this draft? The former method killed all the suspense, don't you agree?

    Every year they change it up on us. Used to only be 5 guys that attend, now it's 16 I believe.

    They also leaked most picks last year on twitter, dont think that'll happen so much this year, at least hoping it doesn't happen.

    They're supposed to not be doing that this year - NFL and ESPN made agreements to not tip the picks before Goodell stands on the podium to announce the pick.

    I agree with you, it ruined everything the last few years. It's a television event that's supposed to be filled with suspense, but they took all the fun away when they started showing grown men crying on cell phones before the pick was announced.

    Honestly I think they should stay completely out of the Green Room, and yea you're right, who wants to see a bunch of guys crying all over their $1000 suits that somebody else paid for? :)

    I like to be the first to know these things, but it is much more exciting watching it and finding out that way, I'll try to stay off twitter

    I'm pretty sure there are 20 or so guys attending the draft. A couple of them will look stupid when they don't get drafted in the 1st round. Just like Stephen Hill and Rueben Randle.

    Kind of like Brady Quinn a few years ago, they kept going back to the Green Room and he was the only guy in there lol. The look on his face...priceless.

    I'm definitely staying off twitter. What I'm worried about is my friends texting me our pick before it happens... just like last year with Wright. Pissed me off.

    If you want to get the info before everyone else just follow Jay Glazer, Jason La Canfora or any of the NFL Network insider guys.

    ESPN made an agreement not to tweet the results before it's shown on TV. Read about that this morning.
