2012 NFL Draft television schedule
For the seventh straight year, ESPN and the NFL Network will battle for the same football-hungry TV audience at the NFL Draft at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
The live coverage on both networks gets underway on Thursday night at 8 p.m. with the first round. Friday's coverage of the second and third rounds begins at 7 p.m., followed by rounds 4-7 beginning Saturday at noon.
As he has done for the past 32 years, Chris Berman will host the first and second rounds for ESPN. He'll be joined by Monday Night Football analyst and former Buccaneers and Raiders coach Jon Gruden and, as always, draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. Trey Wingo will take over the host chair for Berman on Saturday.
Rich Eisen, Mike Mayock, Michael Irvin, Marshall Faulk and Kurt Warner headline the NFL Network coverage, with Eisen hosting all three rounds.
Philly.com will live chat the every round of the draft.
Currently, the Eagles have nine picks in the draft. But that number could grow once the Asante Samuel trade to the Falcons becomes official. The Eagles are expected to receive a late-round pick from Atlanta for Samuel.
Pending another trade, the Eagles will select 15th in the first round.
