It. Has. Arrived.

The NFL takes center stage - more so this year than any year before - for their annual draft. With a world pining for anything sports related, the NFL is giving many an escape over the next three days where fans can see their teams take the next step - forward or backward - as they select the future of their teams.

All the talk heading into the night is Joe Burrow being taken by the Cincinnati Bengals. After that, it’s a question of who goes first, Tua or Herbert? How many tackles will be gone in the top ten? What team sees Isaiah Simmons as a can’t miss Swiss army knife for their defense?

And don’t forget ALL the trades that will come flooding in.

Buccaneers fans are wondering what their team is going to do. After signing Tom Brady and trading for Rob Gronkowski, most fans are hoping to see them land one of the top four offensive tackles in round one - Tristan Wirfs (Iowa), Jedrick Wills (Alabama), Mekhi Becton (Louisville), and Andrew Thomas (Georgia). It will be intriguing to see if GM Jason Licht will trade up in the first round for the first time in his career to ensure he lands one of those four to help keep Brady on his feet. After that, it’s anyone’s guess. Do the Bucs go with a stud defensive lineman? A corner? Even one of the top wide receivers isn’t out of the question to create one of the most insane offensive rosters in not only Tampa Bay history, but NFL history.

It’s going to be interesting for sure to see how these teams do relying on their home internet connections as we take part in the first ever all digital draft. There is bound to be some crazy moments coming out of this night.

You can watch the NFL Draft on ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST.

Discuss the players selected and all the goings on in the comment section below, but we will post some important tweets in this thread throughout the first round. Happy draft day, all!
