More than 250 new players will join the league in the 2018 NFL Draft in April. Some top college football players will be important additions for teams like the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, as they look to rebuild for the future.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 2018 NFL Draft, including order of picks and live TV coverage on ESPN.
Live coverage of Rounds 2 and 3 on April 27 (7 p.m. ET) will be shown on four networks: NFL Network, Fox, ESPN and ESPN2. Joel Klatt, Fox’s lead college football analyst, and Charles Davis will join NFL Network’s Peter Schrager and Chris Rose on the coverage.
For the first time, ABC will simulcast ESPN’s coverage of Rounds 4-7 on April 28 (noon ET). NFL Network will cover the later rounds, too. Fans also can also stream the action through NFL, Fox Sports and ESPN apps.
ESPN’s “College GameDay” will even put its college-themed twist on the draft Thursday and Friday. Rece Davis will be joined by “GameDay” regulars Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard behind the mic.
The 2017 first-round draft pick out of Alabama started 10 games as a rookie, tallying 72 tackles.
Jeter blinked first after reportedly telling Stanton that he’d force him to be on a watered-down rebuilding club for years if he didn’t accept a trade that the organization worked out as opposed to one to a team that he preferred.
The Yankees and Marlins completed a trade in December to move Stanton, who hit 59 homers and won the National League MVP last season, and ever since there’s been very little looking back other than continuing past friendships with former teammates.
“I follow whoever my friends are,” Stanton said. “I check out how they’re doing. I made sure to send notes when they’re doing well and keep ’em going.”
Come August, Stanton will have another reunion with his old club, one that probably will be more meaningful: The Yankees’ two games in Miami.
“It’ll be cool to see my guys (this week), but I think it’ll be a little bit different when I go to Miami,” he said.
