NFL Draft goes Primetime in 2010, will last three days

New, comments

The NFL is looking to cash in on some primetime ad revenue by changing the televised format of the NFL Draft:

Commissioner Roger Goodell notified teams Thursday that the draft will be spread over three days in 2010, running April 22-24.

...

ESPN and the NFL Network will televise the entire show.

The first round will take place on Thursday, April 22, starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The second and third rounds will start at 6:30 p.m. ET on April 23.

Rounds 4 through 7 will be on April 24, starting at 1 p.m. ET.

Basically, if your team doesn't have a first round pick, you can spend the first day of the draft watching Jets fans boo their team.
