The NFL Draft will be here before you know it. One of the most common questions asked by football fans is what time is the 2016 NFL Draft? For the current draft year, the answer is that it just depends on the day of the draft. For the opening round that occurs on April 28th, 2016, the events will kick off at 8PM East Coast Time. The draft goes on for three days, and the start time of each day varies a bit depending on the day of the draft. Everyone is waiting to see who will ultimately be picked first in the draft since convention wisdom from the various NFL Mock Drafts can prove to not necessarily be 100% accurate over the years.
