The Oakland Raiders were planning to announce each of their draft picks on Day 3 from Las Vegas.
The fourth round announcement involved Nevada governor Brian Sandoval standing in front of the famous welcome to fabulous Las Vegas sign.
The NFL Network aired that announcement, but per the advisement of senior anchor Rich Eisen they took a different course in the following round.
During their live broadcast coverage of the 2017 NFL draft Eisen said he felt it was too “harsh” to Oakland fans to show their team announcing its picks from Las Vegas again.
The network did not throw to Vegas as Eisen suggested — and the show rolled on.
