Well, close enough, anyway:

Draft expands to 3 days, Round 1 on Thursday (nfl.com)

Round 1 is set for Thursday, April 22, with a 7:30 pm Eastern start. Rounds 2 and 3 would be on Friday, starting at 6:30, and then rounds 4-7 starting at 10am on Saturday.

So, to make it "more accessible to fans", not only do they start the draft on THURSDAY NIGHT, but it'll still be 4:30 on the West Coast, and then the Friday broadcast starts at 3:30. (and yes, for people who occasionally read the baseball thread as well, I'm aware of the irony of me using this example when I popped off at West Coasters being upset about missing the start of World Series games.) What was wrong with it just being an all-weekend affair, anyway?

Wow, this kind of just slipped under the radar. I really liked the way they've been doing it. It's the one big NFL weekend in Spring. It's an event. I can't say I like anything about the new plan.

Normally I'd agree this is just a weird move, but for the past three years I've missed the first day of the draft due to non-sports friends always making plans that weekend. So instead of getting the news about picks via text, I might actually be able to *see* the friggin' Draft this year.
