Falcons fans won’t have to wait long to see who their team selects, but if your favorite team is at the back end of the first round, expect to be up until close to midnight. Last year’s draft took three hours and 44 minutes. Moreover, if the Falcons trade back into the first round, as many pundits expect, fans can fully anticipate seeing the night end around midnight eastern time.

Selection Time Limits

  • Round 1: Ten minutes per selection
  • Round 2: Seven minutes per selection
  • Rounds 3-6: Five minutes per selection
  • Rounds 7: Four minutes per selection

TV and Radio

The draft has become quite the prize to televise. This year, NFL Network, ABC, ESPN, and ESPN Deportes will nationally broadcast the 2022 NFL Draft, while SiriusXM NFL Radio and ESPN Radio will cover the event on the radio.


The draft has become quite the spectacle. The draft will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada next to the Caesars Forum. This one should be entertaining.
