Thursday, April 23 - Round 1

7:35 p.m. – Joe Burrow goes No. 1 to the Bengals, Chase Young goes No. 2 to Washington, and we're underway!

7:40 p.m. – The Lions took Ohio State CB Jeff Okudah at No. 3. There had been talk of them trading the pick, but Okudah is a great selection.

8:30 p.m. – Not many surprises thus far. CJ Henderson goes to the Jaguars at No. 9 and Jedrick Wills to the Browns at No. 10.

8:50 p.m. – We have our first trade, and all of the big four tackles are off the board. The Bucs move up one spot to take Tristan Wirfs at No. 13. As for receivers, Henry Ruggs went at No. 11 but CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy are still on the board.

9:10 p.m. – Clemson corner AJ Terrell goes to the Falcons at No. 16, which is higher than expected.

9:35 p.m. – Ohio State CB Damon Arnette going to the Raiders at 19 is the first shocker of the draft.

9:55 p.m.The Vikings take LSU receiver Justin Jefferson with the 22nd overall pick!

10:10 p.m. – The Vikings picked up a fourth and a fifth by moving back from 25 to 31 in a deal with the 49ers.

10:25 p.m. – The Packers just traded up to get Utah State QB Jordan Love with the 26th pick. Wow.

11:00 p.m.The Vikings take TCU corner Jeff Gladney with the 31st overall pick!

Friday, April 24 - Rounds 2 and 3

Josh Jones could be the pick here

Wanted Reagor...not sure if Jefferson can play with Thielen. Best available although not sure how much he benefited from playing with Burrow and Chase.

CBs still on the board

@Will Ragatz what teams should we be worried about picking a player we were hoping to draft?

I get that the Chargers need a quarterback, but I'm not sure how good Herbert will be in the NFL.

I wonder how much effort each team had to do in order to spice up all of these home set ups with team decorations lol.
