The 2011 NFL Draft will begin one hour from now. As the Buffalo Bills pick third overall (no, it's not at all likely that they'll trade down), we're getting our first open thread of the night started a little early. We doubt you'll complain. The draft has arrived!
After months of speculation, everybody and their brother seems to think that Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus will be the Bills' pick tonight. Maybe it's just me, but I believe that fact all but eliminates Dareus from Bills consideration. (I've watched the Bills draft, friends. I've learned.) But as Dareus sits ahead of Von Miller and Patrick Peterson on my short list for the pick, I'm hopeful that the likes of Kiper, McShay, Mayock, Gosselin and Nawrocki are all correct.
Settle yourselves in, folks. This thread is all yours, so stretch your legs and let's start talking about the 2011 NFL Draft. Where's everyone watching tonight?
