The 2013 NFL Draft kicks off Thursday, the first of three days of the annual draft. For the first year, all three days of live draft coverage will be hosted exclusively on the NFL Network.
The draft begins Thursday in prime-time with the first round, but NFL Network's comprehensive coverage begins well beforehand. Their live coverage will begin at 1 p.m. ET with seven hours of live coverage from Radio City Music Hall prior to the 8 p.m. draft. The first round is scheduled to last three hours, and the NFL Network will host a one-hour first-round wrap afterward.
Day Two coverage begins again at 1 p.m. live from Radio City Music Hall, providing 5 1/2 hours of preview before the second and third rounds begin at 6:30 p.m. A 90-minute wrap-up show will air afterward on the NFL Network.
The final day of draft coverage kicks off Saturday at 10 a.m. with a two-hour live preview before the fourth round begins at noon. The final telecast from Radio City Music Hall is scheduled to end at 7:30 p.m., at which point a 30-minute wrap will close out the week's coverage.
