2012 NFL Draft: TV Schedule, Start Time And More

The NFL Draft airs tonight on ESPN and NFL Network, bringing closure to the pre-Draft media orgy -- and officially kicking off the post-Draft media orgy.

Unless they trade down, the Cleveland Browns will draft fourth overall. There have been rumblings over the past 24 hours that the New York Jets were eyeing the Browns' pick -- they apparently have a thing for Alabama running back Trent Richardson, who Cleveland is expected to take -- but as of Thursday morning the Browns were still penciled in at No. 4.

There is a maximum of 10 minutes between each first-round pick. And while the top two picks are pretty much already set in stone -- Andrew Luck to the Indianapolis Colts and Robert Griffin III to the Washington Redskins -- there could be some excitement right before Cleveland, at No. 3.

We'll know tonight.

Draft time/date: 8:00 p.m. ET, Thursday, April 26, 2012

Location: Radio City Music Hall, New York, New York

TV: ESPN, NFL Network
