Live BBA Coverage of NFL Draft

As is an annual 'tradition' of sorts here at the Badger Blog Alliance, Lance Burri and I will be likely live-blogging the NFL Draft today, which starts at 3 PM CT.

Early things we know for sure:
  1. The Lions will draft Matt Stafford, QB-Georgia, No. 1 Overall. ESPN is reporting he will be paid an ungodly amount of money ($78 million for 6 years, $41.7M guaranteed) even though he hasn't played a down in the league.
  2. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting Texas Tech WR Michael Crabtree is the Packers #1 guy they'd like to draft. This is highly unlikely, since most boards have him going in the top 5 easily. That will be well past the Packers pick at #9.
  3. Expect the Pack to go with Boston College DT B.J. Raji is your likely 1st Round Pick by your Green Bay Packers. So says the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Expect more updates and discussion, as well as check Twitter for both me, Lance, and any other BBA-ers on it. Lord only knows what we might be talking Draft-related there.
