    I am! I wonder how it will look, being done virtually with no audience?

    Who will pick Tua, and with which pick #??

    First round is 8pm Eastern tonight. (espn, nfl network, abc, espn desportes)

    I miss sports. :(

    Don't think Tua will go that high, but you
    never know. QBs look good on paper until
    the first season. Its all a gamble.

    I just hope the browns get some big boy tackles..
    and a good LB

    I would be leery of picking Tua, with his injury history--but I think he'll easily go top 10, and maybe top 5.

    I've only ever sat down to watch the draft once, and it was just the first round. HOWEVER...I'm watching tonight! I just needed something to look forward to, I even put it on my calendar several weeks ago. Got a zoom call scheduled with a few friends to "watch it together".

    I think ratings will be through the roof, record-breaking. Sports fans are starved. We all know the sports channels have been showing re-runs of old classic games. But what amazed me was the other night ESPN was running a replay of an old football practice. No kidding. Senior Bowl practice from January. Something I can't believe anyone would have watched when it happened in the first place.

    The draft is always the highlight of my NFL year... but, I'm a life long Browns fan, so understandable I guess.

    Also looking for one of the 3 "can't miss" left tackles available at #10. I was comfortable with John Dorsey leading the draft, but he's gone. Will see how Misters Berry and Stefanski do.

    They were set in the middle of the OL, then signed Conklin at right tackle. A great young left tackle would be the perfect compliment.

    Yes, I love the NFL draft. I hope my 49ers get a wide receiver that will stretch the field and give them the deep threat they lack.

    I think the Dolphins might take a chance on Tua despite his injury history. He's such a dynamic play maker. If not them then maybe the Chargers right after them.

    I love the draft! My oldest is a big fan and it gives us a chance to chat about something other than guitars.

    I don't see Tua lasting past the Chargers pick.

    Not really looking that forward to it this year... I doubt there will be a season. maybe an empty stadium season, but if it resurges in the fall as predicted...

    No, he still owns the team.

    Tua doesn't look like an NFL QB to me, I like Herbert and even Love a lot more. Kills me to say it as a fellow lefty but I don't see Tua as an NFL QB with his injury history.

    My team (Steelers) traded away our first rounder so nothing to really look forward to tonight. But Minkah Fitzpatrick was so worth it.

    I'll be watching tonight with my son (who is 15) which is a tradition. His knowledge of anything involving professional football amazes me.

    Hope springs eternal with the draft. Nothing but upside and potential, before any of them have to play a down in the NFL.

    I was *just* talking to my wife about the draft, how without sports I’ve moved on and am not really missing any of it, with no interest in the draft this year.

    She figures it’s because it’s hard to get excited when there’s a good chance there may not even be a season. She may be right.

    So instead of ESPN and my team’s website, I spend that time here...

    Can't wait. All I have been doing for the past week, while working from home, is watching NCAAF replays and combine. Ironically, this is the one year the Raiders really DO need a wide receiver....
