Everyone knows that ESPN and NFL Network will provide wall-to-wall coverage of this week's NFL draft. What you might not have known, though, is that there will be a third news entity present for the festivities at Radio City Music Hall: the OCNN.
Started by none other than Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco, the "Ochocinco News Network" will have representatives on the floor in New York to provide up-close insight and provide live reaction from the floor of the NFL's biggest event of the offseason.
To cover the draft, Ochocinco enlisted a guy who absolutely shut him down him during Week 17 and the wild-card round this past season, Jets CB Darrelle Revis. After dominating No. 85, Revis was shocked that Ochocinco asked him to be a correspondent.
“On the field, Chad and I are definitely rivals, so I was a bit surprised to get the call from OCNN, asking me to join the team,” said Revis. “But I guess it makes sense that I would be a member of OCNN, considering the fact that I’ve devoted my professional life to providing the best coverage in the NFL.”
To get a perspective from a draftee, Chad also signed up Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy, widely considered a top-three 2010 selection. Getting to know many of the other potential top picks along the draft process, he'll be able to give fans a very inside look at what is going on with the players waiting to hear their names called.
If you're interested in checking out their updates as you follow PFW's draft coverage this week, you can go to the official OCNN website (www.motorola.com/OCNN), Facebook page (www.facebook.com/OCNN85) or follow either player on Twitter (@revis24 or @GK_McCoy).
