NFL DRAFT DAY ONE OPEN THREAD

New, 62 comments

We're talkin' football... sort of.

For the first time in a very long time, the NFL Draft is taking place somewhere other than Radio City Music Hall in New York City.  Instead, it's taking place in Chicago -- good news, Bears fans, you get to indulge your inner Jets fan and boo the hell out of whoever the Bears take in the top ten!

For our own interests, tonight should be the culmination of Brandon Scherff's brilliant year and fantastic Iowa career.  He's widely expected to hear his name called in the top ten of this year's draft (the Giants at #9 is an awfully popular landing spot for him among mock drafts), so we shouldn't have to wait too long to find out what new colors he'll be suiting up in next season.  There's been a little scuttlebutt that Carl Davis could join him in the drafted ranks tonight, but it's probably more likely that his name gets called tomorrow night (when Rounds 2 and 3 are held).

The draft gets underway at 7 PM CT, with TV coverage from ESPN and NFL Network.

Here's your open thread to talk all about it.
