    Anyone know what time the NFL draft will actually start on Saturday, April 25? Also, is it only going to be on NFL Network or will it be shown on other networks as well? Couldn't find anything on NFL.com or NFL Network websites or even google. Thanks in advance.

    Could be wrong but....

    April 25th, 3:00 PM, Rounds 1 and 2, NFL Network, NFL.com, and ESPN (it may switch over to ESPN 2 later I'm not sure though)

    April 26th 11:00 AM, Round 3-7, NFL Network, NFL.com, and ESPN (I think, some may be on ESPN 2 as well)

    Thanks for the info BBA. Trying to plan a draft party. Can't believe that NFL.com doesn't show this info.

    The draft actually starts at 4:00pm on the 25th, although the actual coverage on ESPN and NFLN probably starts hours earlier.

    I believe the times above represent when television coverage begins, but the first pick 'on the clock' is actually one hour later (4 pm and noon eastern time, respectively) on each of those days.

    If you plan on going (I recommend it as a once in a lifetime experience- just for the freak show that is NYC) people get on line 24 hours earlier to get a wrist band. Being the ubermarketing entity that it is, the NFL is offering for $399, tickets for both days and a breakfast briefing..... If you don't feel like waiting in line, and you don't mind shelling out 4 Benjamins....
    In the past if you attended day two, (no lines, no waiting, no people ) and stayed the whole day they gave you tickets for the following year's draft. That way they put people in the hall but you'll notice that they never pan the crowd on day 2....300 people tops....
