2011 NFL Draft Start Time, Schedule

Just a couple years ago, the NFL Draft schedule was pretty straightforward. The first few rounds took place on a Saturday with a start time of noon, and the rest of the draft was held all day long on Sunday. Since moving to primetime on a Thursday in 2010, things are a bit more complicated, not only for the schedule, but also for the NFL Draft start time.

In order to keep things in order and make sure you don't miss a second of the action, here is a look at the schedule and start times for the 2011 NFL Draft (all times Eastern):

Thursday, April 28, 8 p.m. - Round 1

Friday, April 29, 6 p.m. - Rounds 2-3

Saturday, April 30, 12 p.m. - Rounds 4-7

NFL Network and ESPN will have coverage for all three days and all seven rounds of the draft. You can also find coverage online at SB Nation's NFL Draft hub and NFL Draft blog, Mocking The Draft.
