Well, we have arrived at Friday for the NFL Draft this year. Tonight will have the second and third rounds, both shorter in time but with just as much interest.
Friday, May 9, 2nd & 3rd Rounds
Location: Radio City Music Hall
Start Time: 5:30 p.m. CST
Time limit per pick: 7 minutes in 2nd, 5 minutes in 3rd
Channels: NFL Network & ESPN
The first round, which you can review here,was wild and crazy. BORTLES going before Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel? Manziel himself going to Cleveland after the Browns and Cowboys both passed him?
We're looking for 2 players from Nebraska to get their name called tonight. Stanley Jean-Baptiste and Spencer Long could very well hear their names tonight. SJB for sure, I would think, while Long, maybe he waits till early tomorrow.
For those wondering about the order tonight (me included), here's the (current) order of choices tonight. And here's who is currently the best available player. These will be updated throughout the night, so don't be afraid to click anytime and the mothership will have a current version for you to read.
As you're waiting for things to kick off, here's something to read from Vox on how NFL teams ignore the stats and just get players to get players. Very good read as you're watching and digesting this whole thing.
