How to watch The NFL Draft With & Without Cable: Full Streaming Guide
By Justin Fried
The 2023 NFL Draft is quickly approaching. In less than three weeks, the NY Jets and 31 other NFL teams will embark on a three-day journey to bolster their rosters.
The NFL Draft is always one of the most exciting times of the football calendar. There are twists and turns, surprise picks, shocking trades, puzzling decisions, and everything that makes the NFL the reality show that it has essentially become — in a good way, of course.
The Jets are slated to pick six times in this year's draft, although that's likely to change once the Aaron Rodgers trade becomes official. At least, that's assuming it happens before the draft begins.
Last year, the Jets managed to secure likely the best draft class in the NFL. They added both eventual Rookie of the Year winners in Sauce Gardner and Garrett Wilson, while others like Breece Hall and Jermaine Johnson appear to have bright futures.
The Jets will hope to find similar success this year. But how can you watch the Jets make these franchise-altering decisions? Let's take a look at how to watch the NFL Draft this year.
