The 2017 NFL draft made it through a rather wild first round, particularly for the San Francisco 49ers. Now, we start to slowly work our way into the grind. Day 2 will still feature some big names as we cover rounds two and three. The San Francisco 49ers traded away their second round pick to move into the back of the first round for the second straight year, but they now have have two picks in the third round. They hold pick No. 66, and then added pick No. 67 in their day one deal with the Chicago Bears.
The 49ers drafted defensive lineman Solomon Thomas and linebacker Reuben Foster on Thursday, and opinions are high on the moves. The deal with the Bears is looking like a fleecing, and while there are questions about Solomon Thomas, he is a versatile threat for the 49ers defensive line. Reuben Foster slid due to off-field issues, and as he fell further, the 49ers pounced.
Round two kicks off at 4:00 p.m. PT from Philadelphia. 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.
If you do not have television access during the draft, NFL.com/live will provide a live stream of the day's festivities.
