After months of waiting, the 2013 NFL Draft is nearly upon us. We know it runs Thursday, April 25, 2013 to Saturday, April 27, 2013, but when exactly does it start each day? Wonder no more. Courtesy of

The 2013 NFL Draft returns to primetime, with the first round taking place Thurs., April 25 at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the second and third rounds on Fri., April 26 at 6:30 p.m. ET. Rounds 4-7 will be held Sat., April 27 at 12 p.m. ET. Watch it live on NFL Network.

For those of us residing in the greatest city of all (or at least the Central Time Zone), that means you need to be in front of your television, monitor, tablet, or smartphone at 7 p.m. CDT on Thursday to watch the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, 5:30 p.m. CDT on Friday to watch the second and third rounds, and 11 a.m. CDT on Saturday to catch the fourth through seventh rounds.

I'll have a separate post up tomorrow detailing exactly how we'll be covering the draft and your Houston Texans here on BRB.
