The 2012 NFL Draft 1st Round Open Thread

The first round of this year's NFL Draft is going to be starting shortly, at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT. There won't be any Bruins getting a call tonight, but there is plenty for football fans - whether you prefer the college game or the pros - to take interest in.

The very top of the draft is set: The Colts will take Andrew Luck with the #1 overall pick, while the Washington Redskins have, as expected, announced that they will select Robert Griffin III with the #2 pick. The Cleveland Browns have just swapped picks with the Minnesota Vikings, and are expected to take Alabama running back Trent Richardson with the #3 pick.

The draft is being televised live on ESPN and streamed on ESPN3. There is plenty of online coverage as well: SBNation's draft coverage can be found here, while CNNSI.com has several of their writers giving analysis and ESPN's draft tracker is also live. Don't forget to keep an eye on the SBN blog for your favorite NFL team, or teams taking players of your interest and/or making crazy trades throughout the evening.
