2017 NFL Draft: TV Schedule, times, draft order and more

The draft starts at 8:00 p.m. tonight, when we’ll find out who the next young NFL stars will be.

The first round of the 2017 NFL draft starts at 8:00 p.m. ET today, and we are here for it. We’ll have coverage throughout all three days of the draft and will keep you posted on what’s happening, who the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are taking, and why.

As always, rumors and reports are flying around right now and the last few days. Three clear trends in media reports for the Bucs: they love Florida State running back Dalvin Cook (but he may not fall to them), they want to trade down, and Ohio State safety Malik Hooker could fall to them because of injury concerns.

Keep in mind that reports in the lead up to the draft are not to be trusted blindly, because teams love spreading misinformation. Sometimes they do turn out to be right, though. The reports of a possible trade down seem particularly reliable, given that both national and local media are reporting that one.

We’ll see what happens later tonight. For now: here’s your open thread for the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.
