The next day, Friday, April 26th, 2024, is when Rounds 2-3 take place. Those two rounds will begin at 7:00pm EST, which is a bit earlier for those on the East Coast.

And on Saturday, April 27th, 2024, Day 3 begins, which is Rounds 4-7. That will kickoff at 12:00pm EST.

Detroit is the host city for the 2024 NFL Draft as well. OK, so we have the start times for the NFL Draft, but how the heck to we watch it?

Three large networks will televise the NFL Draft; ESPN, NFL Network, and ABC. You can stream the NFL Draft on fubo, and according to CBS, CBS Sports HQ will have coverage for the draft as well.
