What Time Does The NFL Draft Start?


It’s one of the most exciting times in sports. The draft. And for the NFL, their biggest event of the offseason is this week. The NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night with the first round. Top selections like South Carolina’s defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, Texas A&M and Heisman winning quarterback Johnny Manziel and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins will have their fates decided on that night.

On Friday, the second and third round will commence. Some local favorites who could be selected in these rounds are Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat, son of former Dallas Cowboys great Jim Jeffcoat, Baylor guard Cyril Richardson and Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro.

On Saturday, the real fun begins. Not only will the draft be blazing through rounds four through seven, but there will also be an immediate scramble for undrafted free agents as the event ends.
