This year’s NFL Draft, which kicked off on Thursday, is already one for the books. For the first time in 30 years, defensive players made up the first five draft picks. Georgia’s Travon Walker went to the Jacksonville Jaguars while Michigan’s Aiden Hutchinson went to the Detroit Lions for pick No. 2.

With the Draft running through Saturday, there are still plenty of players up for grabs. Rounds two and three will take place on Friday at 4 p.m. PT. Saturday’s coverage of rounds 4-7 will begin at 9 a.m. PT.

Thankfully, even without cable, you don’t have to miss any of the action. The NFL Draft will broadcast on ABC and ESPN, which are available to stream online from platforms such as Sling TV, Fubu TV and VidGo.

Here are the best ways to stream all the action from the 2022 NFL Draft, and catch all the games once the NFL season kicks off in September.
