NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took some time on Wednesday to talk bout the new month of the draft.
“The later time period is actually beneficial in some ways,” Goodell told Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. “It’s obviously an anxious time for the players, the teams and the fans. They want to get moving. But there have been some real pluses, and we’ll have to evaluate that. A number of our coaches have praised it, too, because it gave them a chance to spend time with their current players and make some determinations about what’s the right place to go in the draft. So there’s some real value to it.”
