Sure, we would all love to be planted in front of a 50-inch plasma with a six-pack by our side watching tonight’s NFL 2010 draft in HD, but not everyone can swing that $100 a month satellite package. Or a 50-inch plasma, for that matter. Considering tonight’s NFL draft will be the first to air on a weekday during primetime (beginning 7:30 EST, tonight!), prior engagements may keep you away from the big screen, anyway. Stuck at work, on the go, or puttering around without cable? Try these options for keeping tabs on your favorite teams and players with the help of a little technology.
CBSSports.com will broadcast the entire draft, along with real-time updates for your specific team, grades on every team pick, in-depth profiles on every prospect, and expert analysis. Inside the Draft Live begins at 6:30 EST.
NFL.com will also offer a live feed. Be sure to download Akamai NetSession for the highest possible quality feed! The site’s innovative Twitter grid also offers an on-the-fly glimpse at what other fans think as the draft goes down, and the Draft Tracker offers detailed stats on every player.
On the Go
If you’re on the go, set your mobile Twitter client to follow NFLDraftBible, which will offer live “tweet-by-tweet” coverage starting at 5PM.
For those lucky enough to own a Slingbox and cable at home, mobile apps for the iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and even Symbian will allow you to stream the draft to your own phone on the go. Make sure your home cable box has access to ESPN, the NFL Network, or CBS College Sports Network, all of which will carry the draft.
Verizon subscribers can also download Verizon’s NFL Mobile app for a live video feed and draft tracker.
