While plenty of attention is on the first round of the NFL Draft, people will be tuned in closely for the second round on Friday as well. 

Arguably the best three days for football fans is about to arrive. Yes, we’re talking about the NFL Draft. The first round is set to get started on Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET. Las Vegas will be jumping in anticipation of who the Jacksonville Jaguars take No. 1 overall.

However, keep in mind that things aren’t done on Thursday. Plenty of people will be setting their alarms for the second round as well. So, when will things get going on Friday?

There’s plenty of intrigue leading up to the second round of the NFL Draft

For those of you wondering, the second round will get started on Friday at 7 p.m. Keep in mind that both the second and third rounds will be completely by the end of Friday night.

As important as the first round is for teams, there’s expected to be plenty of studs available in the second round as well. Remember that players such as Rob Gronkowski, Michael Strahan, Brett Favre and Drew Brees were all taken in the second round. There’s a lot of Super Bowl glory between those four.

While we don’t want to compare any future second-rounders to those listed above, it just goes to show how there’s always going to be elite options available past the first day of the draft. There will be plenty of pressure on general managers to knock picks out of the park on Friday night. Fans will be ready to see how things go down.
