NFL has laid down the law on the NFL Network and ESPN announcing the pick before it happens

draftHave you sat watching the NFL Draft, and when your team is on the clock and about to make their pick, someone like Adam Schefter tweets out that your team will select player _____Blank before it happens? 

Well that will not happen anymore at least from the NFL Network and ESPN.  Per Richard Deitsch of, the NFL has cracked down and told reporters not to do it.  Ian Rapoport confirmed it today.

True RT @richarddeitsch: ESPN & NFL Network staffers will not tweet 1st rd picks ahead of coverage during NFL Draft

While that will help, last year Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports was the one breaking the news the most.
