NFL Draft 2018 Live Thread: First Round picks, trades, and live updates

Follow along with round one of the 2018 NFL Draft all Thursday evening.

NFL: NFL Draft Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

It’s finally here. The 2018 NFL Draft is here, starting at 8:00 PM Eastern time tonight. The premier event of the NFL’s offseason begins, and the Green Bay Packers will go on the clock earlier than usual with the 14th overall selection.

That’s barring a trade up, of course, and rumor has it that the Packers are exploring the possibility of climbing the board for an earlier pick. That may make sense, as the draft’s top defensive backs are largely projected to be gone by the time Green Bay goes on the clock, and the team has been reported to be connected to each of Denzel Ward, Derwin James, and Minkah Fitzpatrick in some capacity.

Here at APC, we’ll be following the draft closely throughout the evening as well as commenting on the goings-on around the league. Keep your browsers locked here for our analysis and for an up-to-the-minute draft board and list of trades.

Finally, there have been requests from the APC community to avoid “tipping” or revealing picks in the comments if they have been leaked on Twitter but are not yet formally announced on the draft broadcast. Please wait to discuss players, picks, or trades until they are announced.
