Does anyone watch it all?
I'm guessing that it all kicks off 1am Friday and goes on for 8 hours?

Is it on ESPN only, or do Sky Sports cover it as well?
Is it 'live' on the net at all?

Sky have the first round (Thursday 1am) live. Day 2 and 3 are available on NFL Network, which is free through GamePass all this week.

Sadly, I'm working at 8am Friday, Saturday and Sunday so I won't be able to watch it live but I'll try and avoid the internet until I can watch it.

Didn't realise Sky showed the draft, usually watch it live online but not sure I will be able to this year.

I assume it's followed by repeats so they can cancel them if they need to? With 10 minutes per team it kicks off at 1am and could run until 6:20am.

"Football Gold" for 30 minutes followed by European Tour Golf. Recording them all just in case. This happens all the time with NBA on ESPN.

Just a box that's at the bottom of the homepage that we can use to chat, it's easier than using a thread for live events because you won't get any issues with "there was a new post, want to edit yours?" so we can all react quickly to the picks and discuss them. Hopefully as the networks apparently won't be ruining the picks before hand nobody in the box will be either by copying stuff from twitter. Also somebody is likely to have a breakdown on it when their team takes somebody shocking, Pr4wn did it when Bucs picked Clayborn and Cherries did last year when they took Irvin.

If I were online (unlikely) I think the only picks that would cause a negative reaction would be QB (someone may need to confirm but fairly certain there were a few swear words last year at the Weeden pick?) or DT and OL.

Are you sure that wasn't a 'where are they now' style documentary on JaMarcus Russell?

The NFL draft? You mean that thing that clashes with the end of the hockey season?

I'm gonna be watching it on NFL Network via Gamepass. Probably get a very early night and then wake up and watch a fair bit (probably not all!)

The NFL.com stream of the NFL Network coverage switches, un-warned, to an "alternate" set of presenters every so often from about pick 10 onward and does more of a retrospective view rather than a forward looking view
