Default Draft TV coverage

Unfortunately we do not currently have an agreement in place with ESPN so at the moment there are no plans for the Draft to be shown on ESPN

As said on the other thread, this is very disappointing indeed. One of the flagship days of the NFL calendar not on TV.

I'd have thought the NFL would want to do everything to get this on TV. There can't be a deadlock with the NFL wanting too much money for the rights surely?

Not a good sign with the UK rights currently up.

I'll just watch it on NFL Network then. I do prefer the ESPN coverage though, so it would be good if this issue could be resolved before draft day.

The Draft is my favourite night in the NFL calendar so this news comes as a disappointment. I think it is a backward step considering we had 2 nights on ESPN last year.

Will NFL.com be streaming it?

It's a shame. Luckily I have nfl network, so I can still see it. It's on radio 5 live I think, if that helps.

Will people who have the gamepass offseason pass be ok to view the draft to or is it going to be blacked out?
