NFL Draft 2013: Where To Watch Free Live Stream Online Of First Round, Preview, Order For Thursday

After months mock drafts, rumors and speculation projecting which prospects will go where, the 2013 NFL Draft is finally set to get underway.

The three-day event will begin on Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET with the first round. The second and third rounds will take place on Friday, and the draft will conclude on Saturday with rounds four through seven.

Both ESPN and the NFL Network will broadcast the draft. Viewers can watch a free live stream online of the first round at espn3.com.

Unless there is an unexpected trade, 29 of the 32 NFL teams will make a pick on Day One. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks do not have a first round selection.

The New York Jets, St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings each have two picks on Thursday. The Jets and Vikings were able to get their extra picks by trading Darrelle Revis and Percy Harvin this offseason. The Rams got the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 trade that allowed the Redskins to take Robert Griffin at No.2 overall.

Each team has 10 minutes to make their first-round pick. The Kansas City Chiefs may not need that long, since they’ve had a few months to ponder who they’ll go with at No.1 overall. The team that won just two games last season is expected to take one of the top offensive linemen, Eric Fisher of Central Michigan or Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M.

The 2012 first round saw four quarterbacks be selected, including two at the top of the draft. This year could be very different as none of the quarterbacks are expected to go in the top five, and some mock drafts predict that no signal callers will be taken on Thursday. Geno Smith, Matt Barkley and Ryan Nassib are the top candidates to be first-round picks.
