The 2019 NFL Draft begins tonight in Nashville, Tennessee. The New Orleans Saints are currently without a first round pick, but of course that could change depending on any trades.

As usual, ESPN and NFL Network will air the draft simultaneously, but this year ABC will also carry the draft, but with a more entertainment-based focus, featuring musical performances in the aptly-named “Music City”. ABC will be led by the College GameDay crew to take a look at the Draft from the collegiate perspective as well. All of the on-air personalities that will appear for their respective networks are listed below. Depending on who you like or dislike, you can choose which network you would prefer to watch the draft on.
