ESPN's 17 hours of coverage of the NFL draft starts at noon Saturday, with eight hours scheduled for ESPN and two more hours scheduled for ESPN2, beginning at 8 p.m. Coverage on Sunday airs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on ESPN.

Sun Sports will air an inside look at FSU spring football as part of its Under the Lights series, premiering at 8 p.m. Monday. The network gathered footage for the program by miking players and coaches on and off the field.
