Mark these times for draft

2/22/2011

The NFL draft is scheduled for April 28-30, split over three days. The times for the draft are now finalized:

Thursday, April 28

Round 1

8 p.m. ET

(10 minutes per pick)

Friday, April 29

Rounds 2-3

6:30 p.m. ET

(7 minutes per pick for second round; 5 minutes per pick for third round)

Saturday, April 30

Rounds 4-7

Noon ET

(5 minutes per pick)

If my math is correct, each team uses the maximum time per pick, and the Patriots stick with their original picks, they will be on the clock with the No. 17 pick at 10:40 p.m. ET, and on the clock with the No. 28 pick at 12:30 a.m. ET.

EXTRA POINT: The first round of the draft lasted 3:23 in 2009 and 3:28 in 2010.
