The 2016 NFL Draft Is Finally Here!!
- Updated: April 28, 2016
The 2016 NFL draft starts tonight, April 28 at 8:00 PM ET. The waiting is over and it’ll be interesting, as always, to see how this year’s big event plays out. Thursday night features the first round only. The second and third rounds will take place on Friday night.
The draft is scheduled to be televised on ESPN/ESPN2 and NFL Network. NFL draft analysts Todd McShay and Mel Kiper(ESPN) and Mike Mayock (NFL Network) anxiously await your choice. Or you could get two screens and go with both.
The first two picks in the draft are already thought to be known. Quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz are expected to be the first two picks off the board, and perhaps in that order.
