How To Watch/Stream Round 1 of the NFL Draft

2014 NFL Draft
The 2014 NFL Draft's first round begins tonight at 8 p.m. ET (watch it live on NFL Network or ESPN) and it's unlikely that Mack makes it out of the Top 3. Arguably the most complete defensive player in this year's Draft class, there's a handful of teams in the top 5 in desperate need for a player such as Mack.
But Mack isn't the only MAC prospect with first round potential. Former NIU safety Jimmie Ward is a Top 3 safety in this Draft class, and arguably the most complete coverage safety. He's projected to go anywhere from the mid first round to the mid second round, but lately it's been looking more like somewhere in between.
