2016 NFL Draft: TV schedule, channels, draft order, players attending, more

Everything you need to know about the 2016 NFL Draft. When and where it will be held, how you can watch on television, the first-round order, which players will be attending, and when the New York Giants are scheduled to pick on all three days.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The only things we know for certain about the 2016 NFL Draft are that it will be held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and you can watch it on television. Below, a breakdown of when the draft will be held, how you can watch, when the New York Giants will be selecting, and more.

With trades for the first and second picks having already been completed, the possibility of more movement in the top 10, and no clear consensus on how the first 10 selections will pan out the first round promises a ton of intrigue. And probably a shocker or two.
