The 2023 NFL Draft is quickly approaching, and the NY Jets and 31 other NFL teams are preparing for a three-night event that has the chance to completely change the landscape of the organization.

Just look at the Jets' 2022 NFL Draft class for proof of that. The Jets added numerous franchise cornerstones in last year's draft, including both Rookie of the Year award winners — Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner.

Throw in potential Offensive Rookie of the Year prior to his injury, Breece Hall, and contributors like Jermaine Johnson, Max Mitchell, and Micheal Clemons, and the Jets' 2022 class entirely altered the future of the organization.

While expecting that level of success with this year's class is probably a bit optimistic, the Jets can still make considerable progress in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Fans will be glued to their seats in anticipation of this year's draft. Twitter feeds will be refreshed, draft rumors will be digested, and TVs will be turned on for this highly-anticipated NFL event.

But when is the 2023 NFL Draft? How can you watch it? And where is it taking place?
