Well, Day One of the 2020 NFL Draft certainly was fun, especially for Minnesota Vikings fans. At least in my opinion it was, anyway. The Vikings got two very good players at their two biggest positions of need and still have 12 more selections to play around with for the final two days of the Draft.
So, we’re going to be back for more fun and excitement starting this evening, as Rounds Two and Three are on the agenda. Let’s get you all the particulars of tonight’s festivities.
When does Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft get underway?
Things are going to get started a bit earlier today than they did on Thursday. The second round is scheduled to get underway at 6:00 PM Central time, an hour earlier than we got going last night.
Where can I watch the coverage?
Like last night, you can see everything on either the NFL Network or on ESPN. They’ll both be simulcasting all of the picks for this evening. ABC will also be continuing their story-driven coverage of the 2020 NFL Draft if you would rather see that perspective instead.
What if I would rather listen to the radio?
KFAN-FM out of the Twin Cities will be carrying the draft, and I assume that many Vikings Radio Network affiliates will be as well. If you will be traveling or just prefer to use the satellite radio service, you can check out SiriusXM NFL Radio, Channel 88.
I don’t have TV or radio, just this sweet, sweet internet.
So what picks do the Vikings have on Day Two?
As of now, the Vikings are slated to pick three times on Friday. They currently have their second-round pick, which sits at #58 overall, and two third-round selections, #89 and #105.
When do you suppose the Vikings will pick?
The time limits are a little shorter in Rounds 2 and 3. Each team gets seven minutes to make a selection in Round 2 and just five minutes to make their Round 3 picks. The Vikings’ pick at #58 is the 22nd pick in that round, so assuming that every team uses their entire seven-minute allotment, the Vikings would make their first pick of the night just after 8:30 PM Central. If I weren’t already watching the whole thing, I’d probably tune in at around 7:45 PM just to be safe.
What is The Daily Norseman doing for Days 2 and 3?
Well, once again, we’ll have an Open Thread for each round of the draft for people to discuss everything that’s happening. In addition, we’ll have a look at the newest members of the Vikings as soon as we’re able to get something posted about it, as well as opportunities for all of you to let us know what you think of the picks.
We might. . .might. . .be doing another live Good Morning, Gjallarhorn episode this evening. If we are, it will be embedded at the top of the Open Threads.
We’ve got another exciting evening heading our way for Day Two of the 2020 NFL Draft, folks! We hope that you’ll join us to see what happens for our favorite team.
