Open Thread: 2008 NFL Draft, The St. Louis Rams are on the clock...


The FIRST ROUND IS COMPLETE!!!!! You gotta love the draft and the anticipation, there's nothing like it

What: 2008 NFL Draft
Where: Radio City Music Hall, New York
When: 3:00PM Est Time (Rounds 1 & 2)

Here we are, its FINALLY Draft Day!! I have no clue what todays events will bring. All I can say is I hope the Bucs inject speed and athleticism into this offense whether it be through the first, second, or third rounds. I've got my fingers crossed for a DJax or Jenkins Drafting, but to be honest, so long as we get a burner, i don't care if it comes in the form of a DJax, Donnie Avery (thanks PR), Devin Thomas, what have you. I'll be thoroughly disappointed if we don't get some electricity for the offense, because this draft allows for that beyond the 1st round... At any rate, hold on tight because we're in store for a loooong day!!! It could be three hours before the Bucs make that first selection!!

Potential Draft-Day Trades to look for:

The Bucs could look to trade for Eagles CB Lito Sheppard should the wrong draft picks fall to them with the 20th overall selection... Eagles fans are expecting WR Michael Clayton in return plus a draft pick

There's been discussions between the Dolphins and Bucs about a possible DE Jason Taylor swap for Draft Picks. The Fins are rumored to want a 2nd Round Draft Pick

The Lions are in need of a MLB, the Bucs could potentially send Barrett Ruud to Detroit for WR Roy Williams

Super Agent Drew Rosenhaus has recently sent out a plea via YouTube to have WR Chad Johnson traded on Draft Day...

The Saints are looking to trade up in the draft to get LSU's Glenn Dorsey and they've been in discussions trying to acquire TE Jeremy Shockey
