DALLAS, TX (WVUE) -

According to a report by ProFootballTalk.com, FOX will be carrying the NFL Draft this year. 

Several years ago, the NFL moved the draft to Thursday night in an effort to generate prime-time viewership. Starting this year, the NFL plans to take it the rest of the way, generating prime-time broadcast-network viewership, according to the report. 

The report goes on to say that the draft will be televised by FOX and is believed to carry a simulcast of the NFL Network feed. 

ESPN will continue to carry the event on its own, according to the report. 

This year's draft will be held in Dallas on April 26-28.
