2015 NFL Draft: First round time, schedule and draft order

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will start the 2015 NFL draft at just after 8:00 p.m. today. They're widely expected to take Jameis Winston with the number one overall pick, and nothing that's happened today has persuaded anyone that anything is going to happen. But we have an entire first round to look forward to, including lots of trades -- and possibly one from Tampa Bay looking to add an offensive lineman at the end of the round.

We've got all the details for you below: the time, the schedule, where to watch, the draft order and the players attending the draft. Treat this as your open thread for the first round!

Round One

When? 8:00 p.m. ET, Thursday, April 30

How can I watch? ESPN and NFL Network will cover the draft live, with previews throughout the day.

Time between pick? Ten minutes per team.

Bucs picks? Number one, first overall.
