NFL: 2017 NFL Draft Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It is finally time! The 2018 NFL Draft is here and we can begin piecing together how the selection process will actually play out after months of mock drafts and speculation. Will the Cleveland Browns use the first and fourth picks on quarterbacks? Will Baker Mayfield be the first pick? Is Josh Allen’s draft stock shot after tweets from when he was a kid surfaced? Who will be on the board for the Miami Dolphins with the 11th pick?

You can join us right here to discuss all of the action tonight. If it is anything like last year’s first round, it will be a crazy night. We will keep this page updated with the picks and trades and you can use the comments at the bottom of the page to discuss with other fans.
