The NFL Draft is Moving on UP

The NFL draft is already large and in charge, but the NFL has taken steps to make this event even more of a juggernaut this coming year. The 2010 draft will change from the standard two days over the weekend format to a three-day event with the first round being held in prime time for the first time ever. The first round will begin at 7:30 PM on Thursday April 22 with the second and third rounds airing at 6:30 PM on Friday even and then rounds four through seven starting at 10:00 AM on Saturday. The draft will continue to be televised by ESPN and the NFL Network and held at Radio City Music Hall. Last year this event had 39 million viewers and with the steps the NFL has taken I only see that number increasing. Break out the hair gel kids because this change can only mean Mel Kiper, Jr. will even become more popular with all the hype surrounding the big event.
