The 2017 NFL Draft is FINALLY here. The waiting is over. The action starts tonight, April 27, at 8:00 PM ET. As always, it'll be interesting 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.

Or watch neither because Bleeding Green Nation will be broadcasting live from the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia. Check out BGN’s official Facebook page for complete on-the-scene coverage.

Last year, we knew who the top two picks were going to be before the draft even started: Jared Goff and Carson Wentz. This year, it’s not so clear. Myles Garrett has long been projected to be the No. 1 pick but there’s been some talk about the Browns selecting Mitch Trubisky.

This draft potentially figures to be one of the most unpredictable ones in recent history. No one seems to have a great feel what’s going to happen for certain. The drama is high and you won’t want to miss it. Stay tuned for complete coverage here at BGN.
