The 2022 NFL Draft is nearly here. This year’s edition of the annual selection meeting takes place in Las Vegas, with this year’s host city being re-awarded the event after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the draft into a fully-remote event in 2020.

As has been the case since 2010, this year’s draft is a three-day event, running in prime time for two days before shifting to a mid-day start on the third and final day. Each of the draft’s three days will be broadcast on three different networks, with ESPN, ABC, and NFL Network each carrying telecasts of the full event.

Additionally, Acme Packing Company will be hosting a live draft party on our Youtube channel during days one and two of the draft. Join us there as we discuss the picks, trades, and all of the drama of the first three rounds.
