The 2015 NFL Draft is through the sexy first round, and we start to slowly work our way into the grind. Day 2 still features some big names as we cover rounds two and three. The San Francisco 49ers have one pick in each of the two rounds, but as we saw on Thursday, a trade would not be out of the realm of the possible.
The 49ers drafted Arik Armstead on Thursday, and naturally that annoyed most folks. He has some work to do to develop consistency, particularly in the pass rush. However, the 49ers have two more picks today, and then another seven on Saturday. There is still a lot of work to be done, but the picks are there to make some things happen. Considering the team now has three picks in the fourth round, there is a chance to do some serious maneuvering.
Tomsula talks Armstead technique, development
Jim Tomsula knows a thing or two about defensive linemen. On Thursday, he discussed the newest member of the San Francisco 49ers, and what is next for him. We've got the full transcript
Round two kicks off at 4:00 p.m. PT from Chicago. The NFL allows seven minutes per pick in round two, and then five minutes per pick in round three. The three comp picks at the end of round three get four minutes. Day 3 will kick off on Saturday at 9 a.m. PT, and it will be five minutes per pick for rounds four through six, and four minutes for round seven and all the comp picks.
ESPN and NFL Network will once again provide television coverage. I prefer NFL Network, but given that I spend more time on Twitter than watching the television screen, I suppose it's not too big a deal what is on. But if you're looking for the best option, it's a tougher call after day one. Once Chris Berman is off the screen, ESPN's coverage improves quite a bit.
If you do not have television access during the draft, NFL.com/live will provide a live stream of the day's festivities.
