In case you have forgotten, the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft is tonight. 32 picks will be made, with a ten-minute time limit separating each one. On the clock first are the Houston Texans, who went from a popular Super Bowl pick in the preseason to the worst team in the league by the end of the year.
Two first-round picks have changed hands before the start of the draft, with several more surely to follow. The 2nd pick was part of the trade that brought Robert Griffin III to Washington, D.C. while the 26th pick went from Indianapolis to Cleveland in exchange for running back Trent Richardson.
The Packers are scheduled to pick 21st, which would make them the first playoff team to make their pick. They "earned" that distinction by having the fewest regular-season wins of any playoff team that lost in the Wild-Card round (and any playoff team at all in 2013).
Here is the full order of picks for the first round as it currently stands. Remember to join us at 7 PM Central to discuss the start of this year's draft.
