2013 NFL Draft: First Round Open Thread, Part 2

Al Bello

We're almost through the first ten picks in the 2013 National Football League draft, and the action is happening fast and furious at Radio City Music Hall.

We've had two trades in the top 10 already. The Miami Dolphins moved from their original spot at #12 up to the Oakland Raiders' spot at #12, and then surprised a lot of people by grabbing Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan. After that, the St. Louis Rams made a trade with the Buffalo Bills to move up to #8 overall and select West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin.

This draft also made a bit of history with three offensive tackles being selected in the top four selections of the draft. Eric Fisher and Luke Joeckel were the first tackles to go 1-2 overall since 1968, when the Vikings selected Hall of Famer Ron Yary at #1 overall.

Again, we understand that people are going to have the urge to spoil picks. We simply ask that if you do, please use the spoiler feature that is in the comments box. That way people that are not wanting things spoiled can avoid having that happen.

As it stands now, the Minnesota Vikings are still sitting at #23 and #25 in the first round. Is that going to change before the end of the night? We've got a little while to find out, so hang out with your fellow Vikings fans here and talk about the action.

Here are the picks so far:

Kansas City Chiefs - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
Jacksonville Jaguars - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
Miami Dolphins (from Oakland Raiders) - Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
Philadelphia Eagles - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
Detroit Lions - Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young
Cleveland Browns - Barkevious Mingo, DE, Louisiana State
Arizona Cardinals - Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina
St. Louis Rams (from Buffalo Bills) - Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
New York Jets - Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
