Football is almost here! It’s just a matter of time before the season begins. The first step was Free Agency, and now the Draft! Today, Thursday @ 8:00 pm, the 1st Round of the Draft will be on in prime time and I’ll be glued to the television. This is a very interesting draft class and it’s hard to predict who each team will pick, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun trying.
