What you'll need to know to follow along with the three day extravaganza that is the NFL Draft.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

I don't know who the Falcons are taking in the NFL Draft, but I do now when the NFL Draft is, and roughly when we'll find out who will be the latest in a long, often ignominious line of Atlanta first round picks. That'll have to be good enough for now.

So you can plan your evenings (and one afternoon) around the upcoming draft, I've included the full schedule below. If everything goes well, we should be finding out who the Falcons take around 9:30 p.m.
