Draft coverage is getting ready to start in about 15 minutes so it's time for this thread.

A lot of intrigue with how some of the players may fall in this draft.

As in past years I'll post all of the Bears picks, 1st round picks, picks from B1G schools, and picks from state schools as well as other players with central Illinois connections. I should be able to update this thread all weekend.

I know there is the thread over on the football board but I thought this would be a good catch-all for everything.

This could be a weird draft. All the experts are all over the map on where players will go. These drafts are fun because it will bring mystery and a lot of smack by the talking heads.

There are only 31 picks tonight. Miami lost their first round pick this year and a 3rd rounder next year for violations of the league's anti-tampering policy in conversations with Brady as well as the agent of Sean Payton between 2019 and 2022.

Great for him, but I don't see it. I hope I'm wrong on him and he has a great career.

Drew Brees or Doug Flutie type QB in the pros I'd guess.

Kind of amazing with the talent he's produced over the years that this is the first #1 pick that Saban has had at Alabama. In fact it's first #1 pick that Bama has had in common draft era (since 1967). Namath was #1 pick but that was in AFL Draft.

He is going to be beat up in Houston until thery can get a supporting cast around him. I would have picked Anderson and pick the QB at 12.

No kidding. I didn't realize that was his 1st there.

Not a big Levis fan, but probably the pick here.

Also, can't believe we are a few picks away from a potential Illini in the top 10. I k ow DW isn't an Illinois native, but I hope he starts getting the Ayo treatment and we rally around the DW flag.
