Football fans can watch the 2015 NFL Draft live online and see who the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take with the top pick and whether the blockbuster trade rumors pan out.
There has been quite a bit of drama leading up to the start of Thursday’s NFL Draft, with two quarterbacks at the top of most draft lists and a high likelihood that one of those top two picks could be traded.
Coverage of the opening round of the NFL Draft starts Thursday at 8 p.m. ET from Chicago. The first round plays out on Thursday, with coverage picking up Friday with the second round.
Fans who watch the 2015 NFL Draft live online have a chance to see some early drama. Most reports have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston with the top overall pick, but it gets a bit hazy from there.
Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is expected to go with the No. 2 pick, but it may not be the Tennessee Titans taking him. Instead, there are widespread rumors that as many as six teams are trying to trade into that spot, with the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles leading the way.
Some 2015 NFL Draft rumors have indicated that the Eagles are trying to put together a three-team deal that would send Sam Bradford to the Browns and give the Eagles the No. 2 pick. Separate rumors indicate that it’s Mariota, not Bradford, that the Browns covet, and they’re trying to send two first round picks to take the No. 2 spot.
There will likely be plenty of other drama for those who watch the 2015 NFL Draft live online. Last year, there was plenty of dealing, including the Buffalo Bills trading up to the No. 4 spot to take wide receiver Sammy Watkins, a deal that could play a role in this year’s draft. As part of the trade, the Bills sent their first round pick to the Browns, one that could be used as bait to land Mariota.
For those watching online, here is a complete schedule of the NFL Draft (via SB Nation).
Round 1: Thursday, April 30, beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
Rounds 2-3: Friday, May 1, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
