NFL makes changes to the Draft process

Oct 23, 2007 at 12:16 PM--


Today, the NFL announced that there would be some changes to the NFL Draft process come April 2008. Below are highlights of some of these changes. The 2008 NFL Draft will be conducted on Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and televised by NFL Network and ESPN.

Beginning with next year's draft, only Rounds 1-2 will take place on Saturday (April 26), the first day of the draft. Previously, the first three rounds of the draft were conducted on Saturday.

Instead of 15 minutes for each pick in Round 1, clubs will now be allowed 10 minutes. In Round 2, the selection time has been shortened to seven minutes from 10 minutes.

The draft also will begin later on Saturday -- at 3:00 PM ET rather than at noon.

Round 3 will be moved to Sunday and remain at five minutes per selection. Rounds 3-7 will be conducted on Sunday, with each selection allocated at five minutes.

The draft on Sunday will now begin at 10:00 AM ET rather than 11:00 AM ET.
