Draft goes prime time

The NFL announced today that the 2010 draft will move to prime time viewing for the first time. The switch will see the first round take place on Thursday 22nd April, the second and third on Friday 23rd April and rounds four through seven on Saturday 24th April.

The news will likely receive a frosty reception from fans on the west coast. Thursday's first round will kick off at 4:30pm PST - in other words when a lot of people are still at work. It's a similar story on the Friday, with round two starting at 3:30pm PST.

Might as well forget those draft parties next year.
