Join us on Friday April 27th in Manchester as we show both Day 1 and Day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft!
From 8pm we’ll be repeating full coverage of Day 1 of the NFL Draft 2018 at The Brotherhood of Pursuits of Pastimes in Manchester, meaning that you won’t miss a thing if you were still asleep when the Round 1 picks came in in the early hours of Friday morning. Then, at midnight, we’ll be heading live to Arlington, Texas for coverage of Day 2 at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, where teams will be making their Round 2 & 3 picks.
Last year almost 10 million Americans enjoyed watching the best young players be chosen on Draft Day opening night which shows just how exciting a event this truly is. Who will your team choose in Round 1? Will it plug your needs? Or will you trade your pick(s) for additional players? The Cleveland Browns currently have the most picks with a total of 12 across all 7 rounds, including the first overall pick on Day 1. Will they finally cash in their chips and choose 12 young players to try and help them gain an elusive win in 2018 (they only have 1 win in both 2016 and 2017 combined), or will they trade their picks away again for hope of a brighter future further down the line? Either way it’s sure to make for an exciting Draft Day!
There is plenty of offensive talent on offer this year too with a draft class rich in both Quarter and Running Backs. Who will be the stars of next seasons NFL? Head over to our website at gridironandgravy.co.uk for coverage on the run up to the Draft.
