If it's not broken, don't fix it.
However, the NFL refuses to adhere to this logic a lot of time.
In an interview with NFL Network's Jeff Darlington, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league is looking into expanding the draft to four days. It's already at three days, with a first round on Thursday, with rounds two and three on Friday and rounds four through seven on Saturday during draft weeks.
The idea would be to have a longer presence on television, which could drive up the cost for advertisers and potentially create more space for advertisers as well. It's actually smart business from their standpoint. More TV time and more money. But it's a bit much for the consumer watching the spectacle.
The draft was just as exciting when it was a two-day affair on Saturdays and Sundays. The three-day event is fine, since there's so much hype in prime time for the first round.
But seven rounds in four days? Please. That's too much. Hopefully, Goodell and the NFL will decide to keep the draft the way it is and not unneccessarily drag out an even that's already working well.
