So there's this NFL Draft thing tonight. If I didn't plug our Draft page yet again, I wouldn't be doing my job - so check it out. In it, you'll find all of our draft related articles leading up to this week's event.
Tonight, we've got the first round starting at 8:00 p.m. on ESPN. Pitt defensive lineman Aaron Donald is not only a virtual lock to go in it, but as I wrote about this week, he'll likely be gone within the first half of that round. Quarterback Tom Savage has a chance to go in the first round tonight, too. Personally, I'd be shocked (I explained why here), but enough people have talked about it that it's still a real possibility.
Regardless of what happens tonight with Pitt's players, I know that the Draft is a big deal to a lot of folks. So ... we'll be leaving this open thread up all night and we'll have two more on Friday and Saturday.
Stop in and comment live during the event.
