Default The draft coverage

I didn't know whether to put this in the draft forum or here. Will we be able to see all the rounds of the draft?. One of the main reasons I'll be glued to the screen is to see if Lawrence Okeye has any chance of being drafted. I can imagine it will take ages to do every pick, will we see them all?. This is the first draft I'll be watching properly and the Eagles are 4th so I'm looking forward to it.

Okeye isn't in the draft.

Round 1 is on Thursday night, then the rest are staggered over Friday and Saturday. As far as I know R1 is on Sky Sports. Rest will be on NFL network.

Okeye will be a selectable player in the draft

Good chance someone uses a 7th rounder on him

Okeye is draft eligible, and there is an outside chance he goes in the 7th, but it's unlikely.

Apologies, gentlemen, I thought he wasn't eligible because of previous sponsorship etc.

Lawrence Okeye will go undrafted .... someone might pick him up as a free agent only to cut him in pre season, sorry but this is wwe wrestler/ex ufc fighter Brock Lesnar all over again, size might be one thing but playing the sport is entirety a different matter

I say if he is serious go and learn your craft and play in the AFL or CFL first, also saying that he only wants to do this for 5 or so years doesnt look good

I wish him all the best but only do this if your dead serious on making it in the NFL

Lesnar is a bad comparison. His attitude, as reports would have it (always to be taken with a pinch of salt, granted) was attrocious, with a sense of entitlement.

A better comparison would be Bradley Smith, the FA TE that the jets picked up, who had never played the game. And who made it onto their active roster.

Not eligible to play collegiate football. One of the reasons, I imagine, that he's going the way of the draft.
