Here's how to watch the 2016 NFL Draft

Round 1
Thursday, April 28: 8 p.m. ET on ESPN and NFL Network.

Each team has 10 minutes to submit their official pick. We're estimating that the Bears should make their pick right around 9:40 ET.

Rounds 2-3
Friday, April 29: 7 p.m. ET on ESPN and NFL Network. ESPN's coverage moves to ESPN 2 at 8 p.m. ET.

Each team has 7 minutes to submit their official pick. The Bears should pick their 2nd rounder around 8:03 ET and their 3rd rounder right around 11:24 ET.

Rounds 4-7
Saturday, April 30: Noon ET on ESPN and NFL Network.

Each team has 5 minutes to submit their official pick in rounds 4-6 and 4 minutes to submit their official pick in the seventh round and for their compensatory picks. The Bears should be picking right around 12:35 ET (pick 106), 2:20 ET (pick 127), 4:15 ET (pick 150), 7:10 ET (pick 185), 8:55 ET (pick 206) and 10:47 ET (pick 230).

Note: All Chicago selection times are estimated based on the times between each selection per round and are the latest possible start to the Bears' draft pick. So the odds are good that the Bears will be on the clock sooner than the estimated times given, but this is a good ballpark time-frame so you can park yourself in front of the TV.
