ESPN Has Technical Issues While Discussing NFL Draft's Potential Technical Issues

"There you have it."

You can tell about three seconds into that awkward smile that Diana Russini has realized something is wrong but she's committed at that point and she's just going to ride it out until they cut away.

Doing shows like SportsCenter remotely is difficult. You have a crew of people making sure one guest is taken care of at a time and sometimes you still can't overcome technical glitches that may arise. It happens.

Now imagine you have general managers, head coaches and scouts from all 32 teams all on the same communications feed — whatever setup the NFL has devised for this year's Draft — plus all the people from the League, then throw in the fact that probably a third of these guys don't know how to send a text message and we're in for a real treat.

Like I said earlier this week, I long for chaos. We've all seen the NFL Draft go off without a hitch dozens of times; let's see what happens when you throw a little technical adversity their way. It seems to me to be a foregone conclusion there will be some sort of technical difficulties with this year's NFL Draft, it's just a matter of how often and how severe they will be.

I guess we'll find out soon enough.
