In a move that Roger Goodell claims is for the fans, the NFL has decided that the 2010 draft will kick off on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. eastern time. It will just be the first round on Thursday night. The second and third rounds will air on Friday night beginning at 7:30 eastern, and the fourth through seventh rounds will air Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. eastern.
This move is obviously not for the fans, but to get the draft in primetime so the NFL can make more money off of it.
