The NFL has announced new ways fans can watch the draft in April, including one that could be intriguing to college football fans in particular. 

NFL Network and ESPN will continue broadcasting the annual talent distribution festival, and Fox is jumping in as well via a partnership with the league’s channel.

For the first time ever, the entire draft will be available on broadcast television as Fox will simulcast the NFL Network’s coverage of rounds 1-3 on its broadcast channel and ABC will simulcast ESPN’s coverage of rounds 4-7. 

Here’s the most exciting part for college football fans: Along with the traditional broadcast on ESPN, the College GameDay crew will provide a “college-themed viewing option of round one” on ESPN2.
