Today is finally the day for the 2009 NFL Draft to begin. Here is the coverage plan for now, though, like the draft itself things can change during the day.
This will serve as your Open Thread to carry you right up until the draft begins at 4 p.m. At that point, there will be a new Open Thread to carry you through the first round.
I will probably run new posts each time the Giants make a selection -- or a trade. Please refrain from creating your own 'Fanposts' each time the Giants make a selection, or you have a thought about what another team does.
I don't want to discourage anybody, but I don't want to end up with a half-dozen 'Fanposts' about the same thing. Keep your thoughts in the threads provided, and that way the comments and discussions won't splinter all over the place. I will be popping in and out throughout the day, as will 'jrs,' to monitor and update the proceedings.
Remember to also stop by SBN's draft site, Mocking the Draft, for updates throughout the day. The NFL has -- for the first time -- granted SBN a couple of credentials for the weekend (not to me, sadly -- boo-hoo!), but MTD will have some updates directly from the scene of the draft throughout the day.
[NOTE: If you are in the D.C. area, check out ESPN 980 for draft coverage during the day. Various SBN bloggers, including yours truly, will be doing spots with 980 throughout the day as the draft unfolds.]
