ESPN and the NFL Network have agreed once again not to spoil picks for the 2015 NFL Draft before they're officially disclosed.
“We want to keep the suspense of the draft,” ESPN senior coordinating producer Seth Markman tells Deitsch. “This is purely listening to the viewers and what they want. It was overwhelming that our consumers, our viewers, our fans do not want us to spoil the draft experience. I know some of our competitors will tweet picks, but they are not telecasting the draft. I am sure there is a segment of the population that wants it as soon as possible, but our responsibility is to our viewers. It’s not some big journalism discussion in my mind. It’s ‘I don’t like angering our viewers.'”
The audience will be following on Twitter along with the broadcast and they've overwhelmingly said they don't want the picks spoiled.
