2013 NFL Draft: First Round Open Thread

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Okay, everybody. . .this is the Open Thread for the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Use this thread to discuss all of the happenings at Radio City Music Hall on Thursday evening.

Whenever the Vikings make their picks, we will have quick posts about each of the players selected, and will follow up with more reaction as the evening goes on. All of the posts will be in the same stream as this post, as will the rest of the draft-related activity over the course of the weekend.

In light of the recent hubbub about picks being broken on Twitter and other sources, I contemplated having two different Open Threads. . .one that would be deemed "spoiler-free," and one that wouldn't be. However, that would limit interaction between our readers, which is pretty much the antithesis of what we want to do here. My personal preference is that spoilers not be used. Now, I'm not going to make that a hard and fast rule. . .but I will ask this of you folks.

If you are going to jump the gun on picks before Roger Goodell announces them, use the spoiler feature in the comment box.

That way, people can avoid said spoilers if they want to keep the suspense for a while. That's what it's there for. I ask that folks do this as a courtesy to the folks that don't want things spoiled for whatever reason.

We're about two hours away from things getting underway in New York, everyone. Hang out here and enjoy yourselves while we wait for things to begin.
