2018 NFL Draft: TV schedule, channel, dates, times, time per pick

When and where can I watch?

The long-awaited 2018 NFL draft, arguably the most anticipated draft in recent history, is closing in. Thursday night, the incessant speculation of potential moves and selections will finally come to a screeching halt as all 32 hopeful teams take their shots on the players they think can be the future. Below you can find an outline of the draft schedule, TV times, and the Bills’ current picks so you can stay informed as the fun unfolds at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Day 1: Round 1

When: Thursday April 26th at 8 p.m. Eastern
Time per pick: 10 minutes

Bills fans should plan on tuning in no later than 9:15pm ET to ensure they see Buffalo’s first pick (assuming the Bills don’t trade up) if each team takes roughly 7-8 minutes to pick before them. (But really, who isn’t going to be watching early for that trade?)

Time per pick: 7 minutes for round 2; 5 minutes for round 3
