CBSSports offers streaming video coverage of NFL Draft

CBSSports, which saw great numbers-and significant revenue gains--in this year's March Madness on Demand and in its online coverage of the Masters golf tournament, is offering sports fans another opportunity to get more than the usual broadcast coverage of a major sports event: It's planning extensive coverage of the NFL Draft, which kicks off Thursday.

CBSSports will have a bevy of experts and analysts, interactive features, and comprehensive round-by-round coverage of the first three rounds of this year's draft, centered on its live streaming segment called "Inside the NFL Draft Live." The program will be produced by CBSSports.com and will air live online at CBSSports.com and be simulcast on CBS College Sports Network; coverage will include live segments from the site of the draft, Radio City Music Hall, and CBSSports.com headquarters in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

The show will include pick-by-pick prediction and analysis through the draft.

Live coverage kicks off at 6:30 p.m. E.T., Thursday with a pre-draft show, followed by live coverage that starts at 7:30 p.m. and goes through the end of Round 1.
