How long was the first day of the draft last year?
A long ****ing time!
Maybe its because I am getting older and starting to forget things, but I always remembered the draft being earlier in the day. Not at 4:00PM
It used to start earlier, but they changed it last year. I was hoping someone would remember the exact time the first two rounds took.
This is just a guess, but I would say some where around, 5 hours, at least.
+/- 3 hours.
each team gets 10 minutes in the first round, so that's, at most, 320 minutes(5 hours and 20 minutes) for the first round. then in the second round there's a maximum 224 minutes(about 3 hours 45 minutes).
obviously every pick won't take the maximum amount of time.
TV has allotted 5 hours I believe. Of course, they could go over or under. I remember one year the first rnd was ridiculously short...like 2 hours!
I expect more potential trades this year which means a longer time.
that's only the first five hours, after that it switches from ESPN to ESPN2.
