The NFL is moving forward with its draft schedule after a tumultuous start to the year.
It had been expected to draft at least three players on June 23, and the league was set to begin the process of picking the first round.
But on Wednesday, the league announced that it will hold its first mock draft at 1 p.m.
ET, and it will be held in Dallas.
The draft will begin at 1:30 p.t. on Friday, June 25.
The mock draft will be televised live by CBS, the network that airs the NFL Network.
The league has made several decisions in the past week to move ahead with the draft.
DraftExpress.com reports that the league plans to move forward with the June 23 draft, even as teams prepare to pick.
The deadline for teams to begin discussing trades is Wednesday.
The draft will take place in Dallas, where Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was selected No. 1 overall by the Cowboys, and is owned by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones and his son, Jerry Jones III, have been outspoken about their desire to trade up in the draft for Prescott, who led the Cowboys to a 12-3 record and the NFC East title last season.
On Monday, the Cowboys’ vice president of player personnel and football operations, David Canter, said the draft would be held on June 25 and the NFL would hold the mock draft for at least two days.
The NFL did not release any draft picks.
In addition to Prescott, the NFL has made two other trades that it plans to make during the draft: a third-round pick and a fourth-round selection.
The Cowboys’ selection of cornerback Morris Claiborne with the first overall pick was a major coup for the Cowboys and made Claiboryne the first pick in the third round since 2005.
Claiboriene is currently the highest-rated player in the 2016 NFL draft class.
The Dallas Cowboys’ pick of quarterback Dak the “Mack” Prescott will be the NFL draft’s top quarterback in 2019.
The first-round draft pick for the Dallas Cowboys will be quarterback Dak’s quarterback, Dak Prescott.
The Cowboys traded up from No. 2 to No. 3 in the 2019 NFL draft.
Prescott, a former University of Missouri star, has been a consistent quarterback for the team and was the Cowboys draft’s No. 5 overall pick.
Prescott is also a highly-regarded defensive back in the NFL, and he could be a high-quality pick in this draft.
A draft analyst told CBSSports.com on Wednesday that the Cowboys are likely to get the No. 4 pick, the No, 6 overall pick and the No., 10 pick.
A team could trade down to No.
“If they get Dak Prescott, it’s like the Raiders and Rams getting Derek Carr and Carson Wentz,” NFL Network analyst Mel Kiper Jr. told the network.
“I think it will go a little bit differently, but I think the Cowboys will probably take Dak Prescott and they’ll get a lot of value out of it.”
The NFL has moved forward with mock drafts before, but this is the first mock that is scheduled to be held at 1 a.m., instead of 1 p.
“The Dallas Morning News reports that Dallas is preparing to host the draft at its home venue, the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The NFL also announced Wednesday that it has begun drafting teams in the second round.
The team that will be selected in the first- or second-round picks will be a team from the AFC South.
The picks from the NFC South will be used to select the team in the fifth round.
The top-three picks from each round of the draft will advance to the Super Bowl, which begins on Feb. 5.
The AFC South will have five selections in the top three picks, while the NFC North will have three selections in that round.
