2015 NFL Draft: First Round Open Thread

New, 36 comments

The First Round of the 2015 NFL Draft is tonight on ESPN. Join us to see what happens.

So the NFL is still doing that thing where the First Round takes an entire night because teams get 10 minutes per pick for some reason hardly anybody understands.  We can't change that.  What we can do is watch along with every other football-starved fan out there wondering where their favorite college players are going to end up.  Here's the schedule, time-wise for the next three days:

  • Round 1: Thursday, Apr. 30, 8:00 pm ET

  • Rounds 2-3: Friday, May 1, 7:00 pm ET

  • Rounds 4-7: Saturday, May 2, 12:00 pm ET

So, yeah.  Round 1 is tonight, 2-3 are tomorrow, and 4-7 will take place Saturday starting at 11 Central.  You can watch the whole thing on the NFL Network or on ESPN, whichever you like best.  Me, I prefer to avoid Chris Berman if at all possible.  You can also tune in online on NFL.com, if you're a wo/man on the go and need your mobile fix.

Any potential intrigue for Baylor fans for tonight's festivities will center on if QB Bryce Petty finds his way into the lower portion of the First Round as the third QB taken.  The various mocks aren't very confident as to that end, but the Twitterverse has been abuzz connecting him to the Saints, Jets, or Bears.  The Bears have also been attempting to move up to #2, ostensibly for Marcus Mariota, so their desire to take a QB appears to be real.  We'll see.  Whatever the case, Bryce is not attending the Draft tonight and will be watching along somewhere just like you or me.

Here's the Draft Order for tonight's First Round:

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2. Tennessee Titans
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
4. Oakland Raiders
5. Washington Redskins
6. New York Jets
7. Chicago Bears
8. Atlanta Falcons
9. New York Giants
10. St. Louis Rams
11. Minnesota Vikings
12. Cleveland Browns
13. New Orleans Saints
14. Miami Dolphins
15. San Francisco 49ers
16. Houston Texans
17. San Diego Chargers
18. Kansas City Chiefs
19. Cleveland Browns
20. Philadelphia Eagles
21. Cincinnati Bengals
22. Pittsburgh Steelers
23. Detroit Lions
24. Arizona Cardinals
25. Carolina Panthers
26. Baltimore Ravens
27. Dallas Cowboys
28. Denver Broncos
29. Indianapolis Colts
30. Green Bay Packers
31. New Orleans Saints
32. New England Patriots

Gosh, that's a lot of teams.  No wonder it takes so long.

Hey, vote in the poll!
