The 2015 NFL Draft is just hours away. Set to kickoff Thursday night from the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, the New Orleans Saints have nine total picks in this weekend’s selection process, giving the team a prime opportunity to find some play makers that can help get the club back on track after a disappointing 2014 season.
How to catch the live coverage:
Round 1: Thursday, April 30, 7:00 PM CT
Rounds 2-3: Friday, May 1, 6:00 PM CT
Rounds 4-7: Saturday, May 2, 11:00 AM CT
Both ESPN and NFL Network will be airing the live coverage. However, Friday night it will be on ESPN2 instead of ESPN due to the NBA Playoffs taking place. For those who will be without a television but have internet access, NFL.com will be streaming it live as well.
The New Orleans Saints own the No. 13 and No. 31 overall picks in the first round. They’ll be on the clock again Friday in the second and third rounds with picks 44, 75 and 78. The Black and Gold are currently without a fourth round pick, but they’ll be back at in the fifth with two more picks at 148 and 154. They’re sitting in the sixth at 186, and again in the seventh at 230.
In a draft loaded with talent, it’s almost time to watch Coach Sean Payton, GM Mickey Loomis and the rest of the New Orleans Saints staff work their magic. Brace yourselves for one hell of a ride, Who Dat Nation. We’ll be keeping you guys entertained here at Who Dat Dish all weekend long!
