It is a great time to be a football fan, because there will be plenty of coverage for the 2013 NFL draft.

The offseason event has now become a must-see as people realize that the first few rounds can severely alter the future of an organization.

For this reason, there will be multiple places to follow along on television, online and mobile devices. Each destination has its strengths, but here is a look at the top places to go on draft day to find the most information about your favorite team.


Draft Schedule

Round 1: Thursday, April 25 at 8 p.m. ET

Round 2 and Round 3: Friday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. ET

Round 4-Round 7: Saturday, April 27 at 12 p.m. ET


Bleacher Report

If you want the most in-depth coverage on every single pick of the draft, look no further than Bleacher Report. 

The site's own Matt Miller, Aaron Nagler, Michael Felder and Josh Zerkle will host a draft party live from New York City that will be broadcast live on the front page.

In this show, the experts will break down each selection in the draft, and there will be additional guest appearances from NFL stars and various other celebrities, including Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens.

While other networks will focus on one pick for hours, Bleacher Report will keep going to give you information on each prospect taken through the seventh round. The overall depth of coverage will be nearly impossible to replicate.

ESPN has been a pioneer at the NFL draft, and the network will continue to broadcast the opening round on television starting at 8 p.m. on Thursday.

Major names like Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. will anchor coverage live from Radio City Music Hall in New York and will show each first-round selection announced by commissioner Roger Goodell. 

For those looking for an online stream, ESPN will also have that available on ESPN3, along with the Watch ESPN app on mobile devices. 

There will certainly be plenty of coverage for those wanting a live look-in to the draft.


NFL Network

While ESPN will be broadcasting live from the draft, NFL Network will also have plenty of coverage on the league's own channel.

Additionally, you can find the same experts analyzing the selections on the online streaming or on NFL mobile

Mike Mayock and others will give you a smart look at how your team drafts in real time. However, the Bleacher Report coverage will be hard to top this season.
