IT IS DRAFT DAY!!! … Where is everybody??? Of course, the picks don’t actually start coming off the board until this evening, but we are finally here. For the uninitiated, the draft begins tonight at 8 PM ET in Las Vegas for the opening round. The second and third rounds will be held Friday evening beginning at 7 PM ET, while the final four rounds will be conducted on Saturday starting at Noon ET. Teams will have 10 minutes to complete each pick in the first round, seven in the second, 5 in rounds 3 thru 6, and 4 minutes per in the 7th round. If a team goes overtime, the team with the next pick can make its pick. The NFL Network, ESPN and ABC will have their own coverage on Thursday and Friday, while ABC will simulcast ESPN’s coverage on Saturday. As usual, we’ll be there from the first pick to the last. We’ll be tracing all the picks and keeping the Big Board updated as players are selected, while Pigskin Paul will be twittering all the developments.
