The 2019 NFL Draft will wrap up tomorrow from Nashville, and if the end of Day 2 is any indication, Day 3 is going to be a very busy day for the Minnesota Vikings and their fans. The team has lined up a bunch of picks for the final day, and who knows if there are any more trades in the cards. But, we’ll have everything here for you tomorrow, as well as the Undrafted Free Agent frenzy that will follow the final pick of the draft.
So, let’s get you all of the information you need to keep track of all the action here on Saturday.
When does Day 3 of the 2019 NFL Draft get started?
We’re in for the long haul on Saturday, with four rounds of action that get underway at 11:00 AM Central time.
What channels can I find the draft on?
Once again, the draft will be on the NFL Network, ESPN, and ABC.
You can also watch it on NFL.com, with the WatchESPN app, or at CBSSports.com.
If you’re not near a television set, you can find it on satellite radio on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Channel 88. I’m sure that there are many local radio affiliates that will be carrying it somewhere as well.
What draft picks do the Vikings have on Day 3?
Well, after the crazy trades that the Vikings pulled off at the end of Day 2, they currently have a whopping nine selections on Day 3, including seven over the final two rounds. Here is the full list of those selections and how the Vikings acquired them.
- Round 4, Pick #18 (#120 overall)
- Round 5, Pick #21 (#159 overall, from Seattle Seahawks)
- Round 6, Pick #17 (#190 overall)
- Round 6, Pick #18 (#191 overall, from Tennessee Titans via Baltimore Ravens)
- Round 6, Pick #20 (#193 overall, from Baltimore Ravens)
- Round 6, Pick #31 (#204 overall, from New England Patriots via Detroit Lions)
- Round 7, Pick #3 (#217 overall, from New York Jets)
- Round 7, Pick #33 (#247 overall, Compensatory)
- Round 7, Pick #36 (#250 overall, Compensatory)
Now, are the Vikings going to make nine selections? They might. Then again, they might not. We won’t actually know until they’re on the clock.
What else is different about Day 3?
Things are going to be flying fast and furious on Day 3, as the time between selections for all four rounds is just five minutes.
In addition, if this year is anything like the past few years, teams will be using all sorts of different gimmicks when they’re announcing their selections, so that could cause a bit of a delay, too.
What will The Daily Norseman be doing for Day 3 of the 2019 NFL Draft?
As we’ve done throughout the 2019 NFL Draft, we’re going to have a new Discussion thread for each round. That way we can keep the action for each round separate.
We’ll continue getting the news up on the site here as quickly as we can. People have mentioned us “tipping” picks on social media, but with the delays for various reasons on the broadcast, if we get information on the picks, we’re going to get the information to you as fast as we can. If that’s “tipping,” well, we apologize, but we want to get it to you as quickly and accurately as possible.
So, I hope everyone is getting a good night’s rest tonight, because we’re going to have a lot of action and (hopefully) excitement on Saturday.
