Months and months of speculation and predictions come to an end on Thursday night when the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft commences in prime time once again. As in the previous two prime time drafts, the first round will be the only round that will take place on Thursday. Rounds 2 and 3 will take place on Friday while Rounds 4-7 will close things out on Saturday.
Unless the Denver Broncos trade up -- they reportedly talked with the Jacksonville Jaguars about the No. 7 overall pick -- it will be some time until their draft choice of No. 25 overall comes up. Or maybe it doesn't come at all because the team trades out of the first round. We won't know until later on Thursday evening.
Draft time/date: 6:00 p.m. MT, Thursday, April 26, 2012
Location: Radio City Music Hall, New York, New York
TV: ESPN, NFL Network
