    Teams may get less time to draft players.....

    Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the NFL competition committee may recommend that the time teams get to make draft choices should be reduced. It is expected the change would involve having 10 minutes for the first round, seven minutes for the second round and the remaining rounds would stay at five minutes.

    I like this idea as well. 15 minutes just seems a bit too long.

    I agree, this would be a great change and would definitely make day 1 go a lot faster. This year was the longest day 1 in NFL Draft History.

    If you don't know who you want to draft by the time you're on the clock then you need to reevalutate your strategy.

    No big deal. Most teams don't take the full 15 minutes anyways.

    Wow, Goodell seems to be wanting to change a lot. I think this a terrific idea.
