The 2019 NFL Draft starts off Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee as the football world waits to see if Kyler Murray goes No. 1--or if defensive stars like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams take the top spot. The start time for the draft is set for 8 p.m., which TV broadcasts scheduled to kickoff with pre-draft coverage well before that, going through mock drafts and trade speculation for hours Thursday. Make sure you're settled in when the Arizona Cardinals go on the clock at No. 1 overall as the NFL welcomes the latest wave of draft picks to hit the league--and follow along with your choice of TV channel or live stream below. Since the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII, they have the No. overall pick, the last pick of Round 1. What time will the Patriots be picking?

Gina Guarisco stood on the artificial turf in the Detroit Lions practice facility on Thursday night in Allen Park, with her heart on her sleeve. Guarisco, 47, of Wyandotte, handed the ball to Lions running back Kerryon Johnson, as he signed an autograph at the Lions' 2019 NFL draft party.

"It's like being a kid in a candy store," Lions defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni said. Yes, this is the best time of year to be a Lions fan. And the fans are filled with a growing hope that this year could bring something better, even though this team has missed the playoffs for two straight seasons and they haven't won a playoff game since 1991. All of that reality fades away this time of year, and some might say, that's the curse of a Lions fan.

And that is why fans streamed into the Lions practice facility in Allen Park. And it starts to get strong this time of year. And the fans took their seats, waiting for the draft to unfold. The best time of year, for a Lions fan. One of the most exciting parts of first round of the NFL draft is listening to all of the trade talk.

In 2018, 15 of the 32 first-round picks exchanged hands at some point, with three of those deals producing franchise quarterbacks. Most of the trade speculation leading up to the 2019 NFL draft starts at the No. 3 pick, where the New York Jets are scheduled to pick. Other teams in the top 10 have been rumored to be moving back, and there is already some buzz surrounding the final few picks of Thursday's first round. 2019 NFL Draft Schedule 2019 NFL 1st-Round Mock Draft 2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State 3. New York Jets: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky 4. Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama 6. New York Giants: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida 8. Detroit Lions: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State 9. Buffalo Bills: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State Green Bay Packers: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State New York Giants (from Cleveland): Daniel Jones, QB, Duke Oakland Raiders (from Chicago): Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma Oakland Raiders (from Dallas): Noah Fant, TE, Iowa Green Bay Packers (from New Orleans): Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State New England Patriots: Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple The New York Jets sit in an ideal position at No. 3. The Jets could stay at third overall and select one of the top defensive prospects, likely Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen, or they could listen to trade offers and fall further down the draft order. "(NFL Network)'s Mike Garafolo has mentioned the Redskins have had talks about possibly trading up into the top five. The reason I say No. 3 [as the pick to watch] is because the Oakland Raiders have become somewhat of a curiosity." If the Redskins are serious about selecting a quarterback in the first round, they could be forced to trade up to No. 3 given the interest Oakland has shown in the collection of signal-callers. According to Rapoport, Dwayne Haskins could be considered at No. 4 after moving up Oakland's draft board last week. Whether Oakland's affection for Haskins is real or not, the Redskins might be forced to trade up to No. 3 if they really want the quarterback out of Ohio State. Detroit, Buffalo Could Trade Back Two teams slated to pick at the back end of the top 10 could be looking for trade partners to move further down the first round. According to Fox Sports' Peter Schrager, the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills could be trading out of the top 10. But trading down could become an intriguing possibility for the Lions and Bills if the first round goes a certain way. If Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones are still available by the time the Lions are set to pick at No. 8, a flurry of calls could come in from teams looking to move up and draft a quarterback. As we witnessed last year with the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals, teams are more than willing to trade up in order to secure the services of a franchise quarterback. Rams Already Fielding Trade Calls The first round could go in a number of directions before the Los Angeles Rams are on the clock at No. 31. But that hasn't stopped teams from checking in with the Rams for possible trades, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The latest first-round trade that occurred in 2018 involved the No. 27 pick, which Seattle used to take Rashaad Penny after dealing with Green Bay. In 2017, three of the last four first-round selections traded hands at some point, and it benefited Cleveland, San Francisco and New Orleans. The Browns took David Njoku with the No. 29 pick acquired from Green Bay, the 49ers selected Reuben Foster at No. 31 following a trade with Seattle and New Orleans took Ryan Ramczyk at No. 32 with the pick it got in return in the Brandin Cooks trade with New England. The Bears don't have a first or second round pick, but general manager Ryan Pace has been known to be aggressive and trade up in the draft.
