Ladies and gentlemen, the start of the NFL draft is officially upon us.

Starting Thursday night, the first round of selections will get underway beginning at 8:00. Beginning with the Bengals, we’ll get 32 picks, trades, lives being made, chaos, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, as players slide.

This is the day we’ve waited for. This is what it’s all about and it couldn’t have come fast enough. With all sports currently suspended, we need something to entertain us.

The draft will start that process beginning Thursday and going through Saturday.

There are also a ton of fun storylines to follow this year. Will Joe Burrow go first overall? Where will Tua go? Will Justin Herbert go in the top five? Will the Lions trade down? Will they draft Matthew Stafford’s replacement? Will Jonathan Taylor go in the first round?

These questions and more will all be answered starting Thursday night.
