NFL Draft 2016: Start Time, TV Schedule, Live Online Streaming, Picks, Order, and More

Everything you need to know about the 2016 NFL Draft.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 NFL Draft is finally here. The action 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. Rounds four through seven take place on Saturday. Undrafted free agency begins as soon as the draft is over. The draft is scheduled to be televised on ESPN/ESPN2 and NFL Network. NFL draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr./Todd McShay (ESPN) and Mike Mayock (NFLN) 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. Both the Los Angeles Rams (No. 1) and Philadelphia Eagles (No. 2) aggressively traded up to the spots they're picking at high in the draft order.
