In an exciting convergence of sports and food, the NFL Draft Experience has issued a list of the food items that will be available to fans.

This three-day festival, which spans the size of 26 football fields, invites families and fans of all ages to enjoy a wide range of games and activities outside of AT&T Stadium from April 26-28. The event is free, and no tickets are required.

This is the first time the draft will take place at an NFL stadium — and also the first time it will air on broadcast television, with Fox and NFL Network carrying a simulcast featuring personnel from both the NFL Network and Fox Sports.

It allows football fans to view team selections in-person and attend what they're calling the largest free football festival in the league.

All that selection stuff can't happen on an empty stomach. Now you can survey the list below and plot out your eats ahead of time.

Vendors include Legends Hospitality, the caterer affiliated with the stadium, as well as a wide array of restaurants, as follows:

El Tacaso tacos, burritos and quesadillas
