The time between each NFL Draft pick varies by round.

In the first round, Thursday, April 27, teams have 10 minutes to pick.

Friday, April 28, will be the second and third rounds. In Round 2, teams have seven minutes; in Round 3, teams have five minutes.

Finally, Rounds 4-7 will be Saturday, April 28. In Rounds 4-6, teams have five minutes to make their picks, and in the seventh round, teams have only four minutes.

Has Any NFL team Missed Their Draft Pick?

Yes, it most recently happened in 2003 with the Vikings and the No. 7 overall pick.

Minnesota was attempting to make a trade, but communication broke down.

According to the rules, the Vikings were free to make their pick at any time after they “passed.” But Jacksonville and Carolina quickly jumped up to make their picks before Minnesota could submit their pick.

Ultimately, the Vikings picked No. 9 overall.
