The wait is almost over, Buffalo Bills fans. The 2012 NFL Draft beings tonight at 8 PM - a mere two hours from now - when the Indianapolis Colts go on the clock. The Bills hold the No. 10 overall selection in the first round.

The first round of the 2007 NFL Draft lasted over six hours, and in subsequent years, the length of time allotted for each selection has been shortened to ten minutes. If that schedule holds, the latest Buffalo's scheduled selection could be put in is roughly 9:40 PM, 100 minutes after the draft begins. With seemingly foregone conclusions at the top two picks, Buffalo's selection will likely be well before that. (Last year's tenth pick was made earlier than 9:30 PM.)

The second round of the draft will begin on Friday night at 7 PM with the third round to follow. On Saturday, day three commences at noon. Buffalo Rumblings will have coverage of every pick as well as analysis on the newest members of the team. Use this as your final pre-draft open thread of 2012!
