The NFL confirmed reports that the league is considering the idea of starting the 2010 draft in prime time on a Thursday night and making it a three-day event but added that no decision has been made.

The Dallas Morning News reported that the NFL was considering holding the first round of the draft on a Thursday night, the second and third rounds on a Friday night and rounds 4 through 7 on a Saturday. “We think it can be very appealing from a fan’s standpoint and an audience standpoint,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in the story.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy posted the same details on his Twitter channel, asking his “followers” to let him know what they thought.

Last year, the NFL shortened the time between first-round picks from 15 minutes to 10 minutes, and this year’s first round took 3:23 — making it the fastest first round since 1990 (when there were four fewer teams in the league).

Why don't they just make it a seven day event, one round per day?

That would be fun.

Better yet, they should bring back the 13 round draft and make it a two week fiesta!

I heard some guy on the t.v. the other day that this draft was so weak that many teams barely had enough guys on their draft chart to cover 7 rounds. I guess at the start of Day 2, Denver had only 22 viable draftees left on their board.
