What time could Mitch Trubisky get picked in the NFL draft?

North Carolina Tar Heels quarterback Mitch Trubisky could be the No. 1 pick in tonight’s first round of the NFL draft. If that happens, expect him to go around 8 p.m. or soon after that. Each team has 15 minutes to make its draft decision, so if Trubisky falls to the 12th pick, expect him to go around 10:45 p.m. or so.
