The proceedings begin Saturday, April 29 at 9:00 a.m. PDT and will conclude in the early afternoon on Sunday, April 30.

Several Chargers, including Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer and the team's top draft choices, will appear during the NFL Network's coverage of the draft on Team Cam from Chargers Park.

    For the 27th year, ESPN will cover the NFL Draft with both ESPN and ESPN2 covering every selection. Time Warner Cable offers ESPN on Channel 29 and ESPN2 on Channel 30, while Cox Cable offers ESPN on Channel 3 in the South County and Channel 27 in the North County, and ESPN2 on channel 28. ESPN will carry the draft from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PDT on Saturday and then switch to ESPN2 beginning at 5:00 p.m. until the end of the third round. On Sunday, coverage moves back to ESPN for rounds 4-7 beginning at 8:00 a.m. PDT. Chris Berman will anchor ESPN's draft coverage from New York and Pro Bowl linebacker Shawne Merriman will be one of four current NFL players participating in roundtable discussions with former Chargers quarterback Sean Salisbury on ESPN's Cold Pizza set. Several Chargers, including General Manager A.J. Smith and the team's top draft choices, will appear during ESPN's coverage of the draft on the network's video-conferencing unit at Chargers Park.

    Football fans looking for radio coverage in San Diego can tune to KIOZ-FM, Rock 105.3, the official flagship station of the Chargers.
