Day one kicks off at 8:00 PM Eastern. There will be live coverage on both ESPN and NFL Network. Teams will have ten minutes between picks in the first round.

The festivities get pushed back to 7:00 tomorrow night as we hit the second and third rounds once again on both ESPN and NFL Network.

Compensatory picks, which begin in the third round only have four minutes. That goes for compensatory picks in any round.

The Draft concludes on Saturday afternoon with the final four rounds on both ESPN and NFL Network. Rounds three through six have five minutes between picks with the exception of compensatory picks, which get four minutes. The seventh round has four minutes between picks.
