The 61st annual NFL college draft ‹ and second for the Jacksonville Jaguars ‹ will be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21. The Jaguars¹ team meeting room in Jacksonville Municipal Stadium will serve as the media workroom throughout the two-day draft. The workroom will be open to media only from 10:00 a.m. until late evening both days. The draft will begin at 12:00 noon on April 20 and 11:00 a.m. on April 21.
The media workroom will have two television monitors with the ESPN and ESPN2 broadcasts of the draft from New York, as well as a podium, backdrop, mult box and audio for interviews. There will also be a speakerphone setup for phone interviews with Jaguars draft picks. Four pool phones will be provided for the use of all reporters. If you will require your own telephone, you must make arrangements through Dave Auchter at (904) 633-6000.
Head coach Tom Coughlin will be available in the media workroom after each of the Jaguars¹ selections, and other coaching and scouting personnel will be available periodically as requested. Biographies of each of the Jaguars¹ draft picks, as well as feature clips and quote sheets, will be distributed in the workroom.
The media workroom is for working members of the media only, and we ask that you not bring guests or other associates with you. Lunch and dinner will be provided both days.
Because of other events occurring simultaneously in the Sports Complex area, parking passes will be
distributed by request to Dave Auchter for media covering the draft and must be picked up in advance. Media parking will be in Lot M on the west side of the stadium.
Television stations planning live feeds should contact Dan Edwards at (904) 633-6000 for information on parking uplinks and microwave trucks.
