The answer to your question is that the second round of the NFL Draft will take place on Friday, April 28th, at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.
The 2020 NFL Draft will be the 85th annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises to select newly eligible players. The draft is scheduled to be held from April 23–25, 2020 in Las Vegas. This will mark the first time since 1961 that the draft has been held in Las Vegas, and the first time ever that it has been held in an NFL stadium, as it will be held at Allegiant Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders.
What is the NFL Draft?
The NFL Draft is an annual event in which the 32 franchises in the National Football League (NFL) select newly eligible players. The draft order is based on the previous year’s standings, with the team with the worst record receiving the first pick and the team with the best record receiving the last pick.
What is the difference between the first and second rounds of the NFL Draft?
The first round of the NFL Draft is when teams select the players they hope will be the best and most impactful for their franchise. These are usually the players who have the most potential and are considered the “franchise cornerstones.” The second round is when teams fill out their rosters with players who they hope can contribute right away, but may not have the same long-term potential as those selected in the first round. These players are often referred to as “role players” or “depth players.”
Who are some of the notable players that have been drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft?
Some of the most notable players in NFL history were drafted in the second round, including Pro Football Hall of Famers like Kurt Warner, Deion Sanders, Jerry Rice, and Lawrence Taylor. More recent second-round picks include quarterbacks Drew Brees and Russell Wilson, as well as stars like Aaron Donald, Khalil Mack, and DeAndre Hopkins.
After the first round of the NFL draft, things get a little more confusing. Round 2 and 3 will take place on Friday, April 27, and then rounds 4-7 will be on Saturday, April 28. The second round will begin at 7 p.m. Eastern time (4 p.m. Pacific) on ESPN/ESPN2 and the NFL Network.
