On Saturday 28th April 2018 the lucky winner will join a Jaguars current player, to announce the team’s 4th pick LIVE on air from a London studio.
The first three rounds of the NFL Draft will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, with clubs then announcing their fourth to seventh-round picks from their respective USA team locations.
