Adam Schefter's NFL Draft proposal is a terrible idea and fans hate it

ESPN's Adam Schefter is a great reporter, but his proposal for the NFL Draft is a terrible idea.

Just look at it.

For more context, here's what Schefter said on "Get Up" about his proposal.

"How about having one round of the draft on every night," Schefter said. "So we have seven nights, seven rounds. Basically it's the Hanukkah of NFL Drafts. And there's no rush to get through anything. It gives teams on the clock more time. It's not like coaches have to have players in minicamps next week. They don't. There are no minicamps. There's no offseason program. There's no other sporting event on the calendar. Have the draft occur one round per night for one straight week."

How about no.

The current setup is perfect. Casual fans can tune in to the first round in its entirety with plenty of names most fans will recognize from college football. Then it moves into Day 2 with Rounds 2-3 as we cover more ground with still-relevant draft picks. Then we move into Day 3 for Rounds 4-7 for the truly diehard football fans. This setup is so perfect that it set new ratings records last season.

There's only so much interesting content to watch on Day 3. Relevant draft picks will be announced on Twitter, or in stories you can read after the draft. Players aren't walking up on stage at this point. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn't announcing the picks. Day 3 is mostly filled with guys you've never heard of. Sometimes even the networks covering the draft haven't heard of the players.

This problem only gets exacerbated when you break the individual rounds up for television viewing. Do you really want to spend your Tuesday night watching the sixth round of the NFL Draft? I get that there are no other sports on at the moment, but there's got to be something on Netflix that's more compelling than watching draft picks.

While I've been negative so far, I will say there are a few benefits to this idea. As Schefter noted, there's no reason not to do it. With everything being shut down, there's not really a glaring downside aside from the fact it'd be boring to watch. ESPN's Ed Werder also had a fair point about the proposal regarding extra time for general managers.

Still, Schefter's idea was mostly met with negative reactions on social media.
