With the NFL draft kicking off tonight, I wanted to remind Patriots Nation of the draft schedule and the teams draft selections. Tonightâ€™s primetime event begins at 8:00 p.m. ET until the first round concludes. On Friday, the second and third rounds will begin at 6:00 p.m. ET. The final rounds, four through seven, will be held Saturday, April 30 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
The Patriots are estimating that the 17th pick of the first round will come at approximately 9:50 p.m. ET on Thursday. The 28th pick is estimated to be around 11 p.m. ET.
