NFL Draft 2020: Dates, Selection Order, Nebraska’s Prospects and More

April 23, 2020

The 2020 NFL Draft begins Thursday night, April 23, at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN. Rounds two and three will be held Friday night beginning at 6 p.m. CT, and rounds four through seven will begin Saturday at 11 a.m. CT. All rounds will be held exclusively online for the first time ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While Nebraska’s draft streak of having at least one player selected in the draft every year since 1962 ended last year, the Huskers are looking to get back on track in 2020. Cornerback Lamar Jackson and defensive lineman Khalil Davis are the two names that have popped up in the highest number of mock drafts, while defensive linemen Carlos Davis and Darrion Daniels are right behind in the discussion too.

Are you ready for the 2020 NFL Draft? What do you need to know about how to watch and when, as well as key information on the Huskers’ prospects hoping to hear their names called over the weekend?
