It’s a big day for football fans who are gearing up for the 2013 NFL draft. For those fans not able to be in front of a television for the first round on Thursday night, you are in luck. Here we’ll show users how to follow and watch the 2013 NFL Draft on their iPad or iPhone.

The NFL 2013 app also offers live coverage of the draft and includes Draft Xtra, a second-screen experience that you can monitor while you watch the draft on TV or over the internet at NFL.com/LIVE.

The NFL Mobile app will provide live video coverage of the NFL draft as well as other draft features like draft alerts and draft trackers, which allow you to follow your favorite prospects and teams.  Split between three days, the draft can consume your time in multiple hour chunks during which not much actually is happening. If you can’t be around the television for that long because you have, say, a job or something but you still want to follow along with the draft, NFL Mobile has a live draft tracker and offers alerts when a pick or trade is made. Now you can know what is going on without having to listen to Mel Kiper Jr. repeat the same information over and over. Note: Some features may require a subscription and may be limited to Verizon or Verizon Wireless customers.
