The 2018 NFL Draft is almost upon us, so now is the perfect time to plan out your schedule for the next few days and make sure that you can take in every one of the 256 draft choices that will be made this weekend.

The Green Bay Packers hold the 14th overall pick in this year’s draft, the highest selection they have held or used since picking B.J. Raji with the ninth selection in 2009. Green Bay should have plenty of intriguing options at 14, and NFL fans have many options for how to tune in for the draft as well.
