I still can't believe it, ladies and gentlemen. . .after weeks of waiting and approximately 83 million mock drafts, the day of the actual 2015 NFL Draft is finally upon us. We'll be providing you as much coverage as we can from every angle here, but how can you follow along with all of the action?
Well, I'm glad you asked. We have all the info you're going to need right here.
2015 NFL Draft (aka the 80th Annual National Football League Player Selection Meeting)
Round 1 - Thursday, 30 April, 7 PM Central
Rounds 2 & 3 - Friday, 1 May, 6 PM Central
Rounds 4-7 - Saturday, 2 May, 11 AM Central
Auditorium Theater at Roosevelt University, Chicago, Illinois
As has been the case over the past few years, you have two options for television coverage. . .there is the NFL Network, and there is ESPN/ESPN2.
While I can't find anything on any of their sites that officially says anything, I'm guessing that KFAN-FM 100.3 and 1500 ESPN will have draft coverage on their stations this evening. If you're going to be on satellite radio, Sirius/XM Channel 88 will have full coverage.
NFL.com will have full streaming coverage of the entire draft on their website. If you're outside of the Continental United States, jump onto NFL Game Pass and plug into the live NFL Network feed.
Also, if you have an XBox One, the NFL app on there will be streaming the draft as well. (Thanks to iJerm in the comments for pointing that out.)
256 picks over seven rounds and three days (224 regular picks, plus 32 compensatory picks)
Time limits per pick
Round 1 - 10 minutes
Round 2 - 7 minutes
Rounds 3 through 6 - 5 minutes
Round 7 - 4 minutes
All compensatory picks (regardless of rounds) - 4 minutes
We'll be here with Open Threads and all sorts of other coverage here on our site this evening. We will also have Eric Thompson (@eric_j_thompson on Twitter) and Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL on Twitter) live at Winter Park for our coverage tonight.
We've made it, folks. . .we've finally made it. Hopefully you'll be here to celebrate it with us and see who the newest Vikings will be this evening and over the course of the weekend.
