NFL Draft 2015 Schedule: Dates, times, TV broadcast, draft order and more

New, comments

We have the times for all three days of the draft, as well as TV coverage, the draft order, which players are attending the draft and more.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be on the clock with the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft at 8:00 p.m. ET tonight. That first overall pick will almost certainly be Jameis Winston, but there's a lot more to the draft than just that. You'll have Jon Gruden, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay mugging for the cameras on ESPN, as well as Mike Mayock, Rich Eisen and others on NFL Network.

You'll have trades, surprises, dumb decisions and players who will change the fate of franchises. Will the Eagles mortgage the future for Marcus Mariota? Will Philip Rivers still be with the San Diego Chargers at the end of the day? Who will move back up into the first round to get a player they really want? And how will teams view Randy Gregory and Shane Ray, with their tantalizing talent and off-field question marks?

We've got all the details right here: which rounds are when? Who drafts where? And where can you watch the draft?

Meanwhile, you'll want to check out SB Nation's massive draft preview, which has all the information you could possibly want.
