Lions to host draft party at Ford Field

The Lions, who currently own the second overall pick, will host a draft night event at Ford Field on Thursday, April 22, from 7-9:30 p.m. The price is just right — free.

Fans can watch the draft which starts at 7:30 p.m., on Ford Field’s video boards. Also there will be tours of the Lions locker room, interactive youth clinics, an interactive area on the field including an obstacle course and quarterback challenge, and a chance to buy 2010 Lions gear at the pro shop.

This marks the first time the first round of the NFL draft will take place in prime time. Each team will have a 10-minute window to make its pick. Rounds two and three will start on April 23 at 6:30 p.m. and rounds four-seven will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
