2015 NFL Draft: Start time, TV schedule, live online stream, 49ers picks for Saturday's Rounds 4-7

New, comments

Day 3 of the 2015 NFL Draft gets going bright and early this morning for west coast folks. Here is a quick look at television information, as well as how to watch online, and what picks the 49ers hold in rounds 4 through 7.

The 2015 NFL Draft is now into its final day, with rounds four through seven ready to go. This is the day for the true diehards. There will be some notable names coming off the board, but a lot of these picks are guys of whom we have heard little if anything. Of course, for many 49ers fans, Friday's second round pick is included in that group.

The San Francisco 49ers have a history that has been all over the place with late round picks. They had a bit hit with outside linebacker Aaron Lynch in the fifth round, and cornerback Dontae Johnson in the fourth round got a lot of great experience. Fourth round pick Bruce Ellington got experience as a return man, and will look to build on his game as a wide receiver in 2015. After that, it was four "medical red-shirts" with Keith Reaser and Trey Millard spending the season on the NFI list, Kaleb Ramsey on PUP, and Kenneth Acker on injured reserve.

The 49ers head into day three having made a trade down in the first round to pick up an extra fourth round pick, and have seven picks. They did not do any trading on Friday, but I have to imagine we see a move or two on Saturday. The 49ers have eight picks in 2016, including the San Diego Chargers fifth round pick. Maybe deal a fourth or fifth for a third or fourth in 2016? I could be down for something like that.

Round four kicks off at 9:00 a.m. PT from Chicago. The NFL allows five minutes per pick in rounds four through seven, and then four minutes per compensatory pick in all rounds.

Television

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.

Online

If you do not have television access during the draft, NFL.com/live will provide a live stream of the day's festivities.
