The wait is over! After what has felt like an eternity of draft buzz and speculation, the NFL Draft first round is officially here, with things set for Thursday night. The Chicago Bears hold the No. 1 pick and the expectation is Caleb Williams will be off the board first.

After that, all eyes will be on the Washington Commanders and New England Patriots to see what they decide, as the No. 2 and No. 3 picks will have a major impact on the rest of opening night. With that said, what time is the first round getting started?

What time does the first round of the NFL Draft get underway?

• Date: Thursday, April 25
• Time: 8 p.m. ET
• Location: Detroit, Mich.

That's right, things will get going at 8 p.m. You'll be able to catch the NFL Draft action on ESPN, ABC and the NFL Network. Streaming options include ESPN+ the ESPN app and fubo.TV. Yup, you're going to be covered to catch every first-round selection.

For the Giants, it's totally up in the air what general manager Joe Schoen will decide to do. With NY holding the No. 6 overall pick, a lot of fans are hoping the team brings in Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze to help out Daniel Jones and the offense.

However, there's also a chance that Schoen moves up and goes after either Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye or J.J. McCarthy. Could Schoen trade back and then take Washington's Michael Penix Jr. instead? Countless options are on the table. Luckily, we'll find out what happens on Thursday night.
