Default How to watch the Draft on Friday morning... legally

Before you go to bed on Thursday night
1. Subscribe to NFL Network Online for just GBP2.99.
2. Set up a shortcut to the login page (your Home Page works best): https://network.nfl.com/nfln/secure/schedule
3. Mute your PC

On Friday
Go straight to the login page shortcut, and if you've got a friend/significant other who doesn't mind scrolling to the correct place in the timebar ask them to do it.

Otherwise, before the picture loads, quickly scroll the timebar back to well before the draft. You can then more accurately scroll it to 01:00:00, unmute your PC, and watch as-live, none the wiser to the actual event.

Using this method, so long as you start watching before 8pm on Friday evening you can watch the first round of the draft at your leisure, legally.

Oh, and don't check Twitter.

I am going to risk the live free stream myself. I know it has gone wrong in the past but I am just going to risk it.

I also pause the NFLNO and put my computer into hibernate mode. When you restart your computer just press the play button on your NFLNO browswer and you'll be back where you were before. Then scroll forward to 01:00:00 on the toolbar when the Colts are on the clock. Simples!

Will this work by using the free online stream on NFL.com or is that a very risky idea?

Nope, that's far too risky.
