Draft Day is Here!

Be still my beating heart.  So, the weekend draftapalooza begins at 5:00 pm sharp PT. Which means I’ll be stuck on a Bart train underneath the icy waters of San Francisco Bay. The pisser is, for that stretch of the route, internet coverage is gone, so I’ll prolly miss a few. Actually, I might be in a bar, but I digress.

  • The bad news? They streeeeeetch this shit out for THREE fricking days
  • The good news? It’s FINALLY here.
  • The better news? On Sunday, Mel Kiper Jr. will soon be re-entombed in has hard shell of hair gel and buried under the ESPN parking lot in Bristol, Connecticut.

For those that need the entire rundown of dates, times, and rounds, Here ya go:

Live coverage of the 2018 NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. ET on April 26 for Round 1. The draft resumes at 7 p.m. on April 27 for Rounds 2-3, and then again at noon on April 28.

This year’s draft will be covered by two broadcast networks (Fox and ABC) and four cable outlets (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, NFL Network). For the first time, all seven rounds of the three-day event will air live on broadcast TV.

  • Round 1 on April 26 (8 p.m. ET): NFL Network, Fox, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes. Troy Aikman, Fox’s lead NFL analyst, will join NFL Network’s Rich Eisen and Mike Mayock at the analyst desk.
  • Rounds 2 and 3 on April 27 (7 p.m. ET): NFL Network, Fox, ESPN and ESPN2. Joel Klatt, Fox’s lead college football analyst, and Charles Davis will join NFL Network’s Peter Schrager and Chris Rose on the coverage.
  • Rounds 4-7 on April 28 (noon ET): ESPN, ABC, NFL Network. This is the first time ABC will simulcast ESPN’s coverage. Fans also can also stream the action through NFLFox Sports and ESPN apps.

Still think Tremaine Edmunds is the guy. After that, I got nothing.

    Edmunds is fine for me. Draft for the defense is a good move. Forget Foster and his problems.

  2. Rob says:

    You know what bothered me about the reuben foster case ? He punched her 8 to 10 times . she went out and found a cop and reported it

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Or she went out and lied about it. I don’t profess to know exactly what happened, but I also don’t think it’s possible she could be telling the truth in that she lied before.

    • Winder says:

      Yeah, it does suck that we only get one pick today. But, at least the good people of Cleveland should have a good time. Corporate bullshit.

      • alleykat69 says:

        Yeah the Browns fans are going to get fucked again by a dysfunctional organization..
        How stupid is a orq that thinks Baker Mayfield /Johnny Manziel 2 is the top pick possibly? Shit you can take the top back in Barkley and still get a Darnold probably not Rosen are Allen are Mayfield at 4..

      • Winder says:

        Ally- I think Dorsey is a legit GM so I am not so sure how dysfunctional they are any longer

  4. Irish Kevin says:

    The Niners should just cut him loose. With the “me too” movement and the fact the NFL has been taking heat for the way they handle DV cases, the Niners need to cut him,!!

  5. Rob says:

    jets trade up for a QB good news for us. browns pick again

  6. Irish Kevin says:

    Guy on KNBR called Mayfield Johnny Manseil part II

  7. alleykat69 says:

    Browns can have Ward, still good for us..

  8. Rob says:

    Chubb and nelson gone ! Buffalo trades up !!!

  9. Irish Kevin says:

    And the NY Giants, a running back at 2?? WTF there is no way a RB should be picked that high.

    • alleykat69 says:

      I don’t know Kevin, Barkley is one bad ass back that the Giants need cause they don’t have one.Guess their gonna milk another year out of Eli..

  10. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah baby grab Tremaine Edmunds!!!!
    I’m getting a hard on!
    Don’t make it go limp 49ers!!

  11. Irish Kevin says:

    Here we go boys, let’s see if Lynch continues his magic

  12. Rob says:

    we’re up

  13. alleykat69 says:

    Fuck me im going limp!!
    I see a need with Staley getting older, But Edmunds is more of a need!!!

  14. Rob says:

    Mike m best OT in the draft … great pick !!!

  15. Irish Kevin says:

    I like the pick, protect Jimmy G

  16. alleykat69 says:

    As Nancy Kerrigan said:Why😭😭

  17. Lurker John says:

    I have no idea who this guy is.

  18. alleykat69 says:

    Smart move by the Cards moving up to get Rosen..

  19. Lurker John says:

    I guess they see him as Staley’s eventual replacement.

  20. Flavor says:

    i’m fine with this pick. Not exciting but a need. I’m a little surprised they didn’t trade with AZ, they could have still gotten him I think. Whatever, gotta protect the QB

  21. Flavor says:

    no idea….

  22. Lurker John says:

    Absolutely a need as long as he’s a talent worthy of a #9 pick. I didn’t read anything prior to the draft linking him to the Niners.

  23. Lurker John says:

    The Bucs are going to have a hell of a defensive line with McCoy and Vea in the mix.

  24. Rob says:

    Staley, McGlinchey, Richburg Garnett, Brown

    • Lurker John says:

      I thought McGlinchey was a tackle. Seems kind of light for a guard.

      • alleykat69 says:

        He is a tackle LJ.. A Left Tackle
        Big boy at 6’8 308lbs
        McGlinchey some say would be a better fit at RT which is Trent Brown’s position so that will be interesting in trading camp, theirs talk about Brown’s work ethics being under par and he will be in a contract year coming up I believe? So he better step it upGood pick I’m warming up to it Jimmy G needs to be protected better this pick will help..

      • Lurker John says:

        He played both LT and RT at ND, just not guard. I was just commenting on Rob’s post, which looks to have McGlinchey at one of the guard spots.

  25. Lurker John says:

    Some of those Brown’s fans didn’t look too happy when Mayfield’s name was announced.

    • Flavor says:

      all they do is make bad decisions so you have to think, just based on their track record, that Mayfield isn’t going to pan out. At least not as a super star. How many QBs his height turn into super stars? Total reach with the first pick in the draft.

  26. Rob says:

    Da’ron Payne to washington

  27. Flavor says:

    Trent Brown hasn’t been offered a contract yet by the NIners so you have to think the writing is now on the wall for that dude.

  28. Winder says:

    We have needs all over the place but I guess rebuilding our OL is a good start. They must really like this kid to have spent the #9 on him

  29. Winder says:

    Anyway, my record of not getting it right still stands. So it probably is a good pick.

  30. Rob says:

    Edmonds to the Bills

  31. Nipper says:

    One of the draft “experts” on NFL channel predicted the Niners would pick McGlinchey but for the life of me I can’t remember the mock draft expert.

  32. Berger says:

    I really like the McGlinchey pick!!! He was on my list last night. I thought we would trade back with AZ but when I saw what the Raiders got I knew why we did not trade with them.

  33. alleykat69 says:

    I’m wondering now if the Bears got back at us from last year.By taking Rogan Smith who the 49ers liked too along with the Raiders who traded out of their spot after he was gone..
    I like are pick and obviously Edmunds wasn’t the fit the 49er wanted so be it and hop on the OT Train 🚂

  34. unca_chuck says:

    All I know is ai heard this morning that the Raiders were very high on McGlinchey and he would have been drafted by them. No way he would have been there in a trade. This was made more apparent with the Raiders taking a tackle anyway at 15.

    Edmunds fell to 16. Huh.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    I just wonder if AZ came to us or a trade, but seeing as we are in the same division I’m sure they were leery of it.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    I’m glad we didn’t get Roquan. He’s not going to work out.

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Flav, Scotty McCloughan is on the Browns now. He’s been nothing but money for the most part. My eye test on Mayfield is busteroonie, but Ward is a solid pick. A little surprised he went so high but he’s a player. I liked him for us.

  38. unca_chuck says:

    4 QBs in the top 10 and they all are risks. I told ya these teams were desperate.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Hey, I; m late to the party. I’ll just keep firing of posts . . .

  40. alleykat69 says:

    Josh Rosen’s already talking smack!
    9 teams in a row just made a mistake!
    Pretty Bold statement from a 6-5 Bruin team and not a 1st team pac 12 player either..

  41. alleykat69 says:

    All of a sudden Russell Wilson becomes the “Old Man” QB in our division..

  42. unca_chuck says:

    Talk is cheap in April.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    Courtland Sutton is still out there. As is Will Hernandez

  44. alleykat69 says:

    Not to be callous, but what’s up with Chris Mortenson?he looks confused like he’s had a stroke recently..

    New thread is up.
