Counting Down to the 2010 NFL Draft

The NFL draft goes primetime.

The always media savy National Football League has watched their ratings do a steady climb over the years. They now apparently feel it is time to test the primetime waters. While other pro sports, like the NBA have already tried this with mixed results, the NFL saw something that made them feel that now is the time. Maybe the 39 million of us that watched in 2009 or the 66 percent increase in viewership from 2001 to 2009? The 1st round alone logged 6.3 million on ESPN and the NFL Network alone.

The 2010 NFL draft schedule is (all times EST):

  1. 1st Round Thursday April 22nd 7:30 PM
  2. 2nd and 3rd Rounds Friday April 23rd 6:30 PM
  3. 4th - 7th Rounds Saturday April 24th 10:00 AM
