Finally, the 2015 NFL Draft is here!

Over three days in Chicago, Illinois; the Ravens and the rest of the NFL will be selecting players to enter into the game that we love. The NFL's future stars will take the stage along with draft coverage not only right here from Baltimore Beatdown but on ESPN and the NFL Network. You'll join regulars Chris Berman, Mel Kiper and Mike Mayock to hear all the gritty details as they happen.

So without further ado, let's get down to business.

Round One: Thursday, April 30th

8:00 PM Eastern

The first round will begin at 8PM and will be televised on ESPN as well as the NFL Network. The NFL has allowed each team ten minutes on the clock in the first round, but you can as always expect non-stop action coming from the analysts on both networks as they grade picks, look forward in the draft to what teams might do and of course show you the picks live. You can expect the Ravens' number 26 pick to be right around midnight in case you just wanna skip forward.

Round Two and Three: Friday, May 1st

7:00 PM Eastern

The second round kicks off day two an hour earlier so that the NFL can push a full evening of draft to our faces. The second round only gives NFL teams seven minutes to select their player while the third round bumps it down to only five minutes (with the exception of the compensatory picks at the end of the third round that only get four minutes each). ESPN doesnt do a Draft countdown show on this day, while the NFL Network does what you'd expect and runs all day long about the draft.

The third and final day of the NFL Draft is upon us on Saturday. Starting at noon here in Baltimore, ESPN is only showing the Draft itself while the NFL Network will be spending most of the morning talking about previous picks. Rounds four through six will give teams five minutes to select the player of their choice while the last round of the draft kicks it all the way down to four minutes per pick in order to speed things up a bit.
