NFL Draft 2018: Start Time, TV Schedule, Live Online Streaming, Picks, Order, and More

Everything you need to know about the 2018 NFL Draft.

The 2018 NFL Draft is here. The wait certainly didn’t feel as long this year with the Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl (yes, that really happened). The action begins tonight on Thursday, April 26 at 8:00 PM ET. It’ll be interesting to see how things play 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 Chickie’s and Pete’s in South Philly on Thursday night. If you can’t make it out to hang out with us, check out BGN’s verified Facebook page for our live streaming coverage.

This year’s draft potentially figures to be one of the most unpredictable ones in recent history. No one seems to have a great feel for where the quarterbacks are going to go, so that adds a level of intrigue. The Eagles’ draft plans seem less interesting considering everyone expects them to trade down. But maybe they won’t! (But they will.)

The drama is high and you won’t want to miss it. Stay tuned for complete coverage here at BGN.
