***EDIT: Overflow thread is here, post on Nick Perry selection is here***

The NFL Draft is here! Starting at 8 p.m. ET (when this thread went up), you can catch live draft coverage on both ESPN and NFL Network. Of course, both networks have had draft coverage for a while now, but the real "draft coverage" starts at 8. Expect the Indianapolis Colts to take Andrew Luck by 8:15ish.

You can also find live updates on the draft at This post will update throughout the first round with picks and trades. When the Green Bay Packers make a selection (or a trade), there will be a new article posted that will link right here. For all other picks, this post will be updated. I'll indicate in the comments when I've made an update. The comments section here is the open thread for all Acme Packing Company members to talk about the first round.
