Of the multiple networks carrying the NFL Draft on Thursday night, ESPN was the most-watched with an average audience of 5,336,000 viewers. Additionally, Day 1 of the NFL Draft helped ESPN win the night across all cable and broadcast networks among key male and adult demos (18-34, 18-49, 25-54).

Rounds 2-3:

ESPN and ESPN2 delivered an average audience of 1,678,000 viewers for Rounds 2-3, according to Nielsen. ESPN.com and the ESPN App recorded their most-trafficked day for NFL content since the final Sunday of the 2017 NFL regular season.
