2011 NFL Draft TV Schedule, Order, Start Time For All Three Days

The 2011 NFL Draft is scheduled to begin at 8:04 pm ET, with TV coverage on NFL Network and ESPN beginning at 8 pm ET. Of course, both will pretty much be covering the draft all day anyway, so check in whenever you like. NFLN will report just the facts, ma'an, while ESPN will try to break picks before Roger Goodell announces them, so ride with whichever makes you more comfortable.

Rounds two and three will begin at 6 pm ET on Friday, with the rest following Saturday at noon.

The Carolina Panthers have the first pick, and almost everyone expects them to take Auburn Tigers QB Cam Newton. The Atlanta Falcons are set to pick No. 27, with Iowa Hawkeyes DE Adrian Clayborn the most popular projection. 

Here's the complete draft order for all seven rounds, including compensatory picks and trades.

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, April 28, and SB Nation has everything you need to prepare: NFL mock drafts, draft projections, scouting reports, the full NFL draft schedule and more. Check it out at SB Nation's NFL Draft page and our NFL Draft blog, Mocking the Draft.
