The rights to the NFL Draft, which will air for the first time on network TV this year, were part of Fox's recent five-year-deal for Thursday Night Football. According to The New York Times, Fox will air the first round on Thursday, April 26 and the second and third rounds on Friday, April 27. Fox's NFL Draft coverage will mix talent from both Fox and NFL Network, with the same broadcast airing on both networks. It's unclear if Fox will show the final day of the draft on Saturday, April 28.
