2009 NFL Draft Open Thread - T-Minus Two Hours

I will create a new open thread every so often so people don't have to sort through all of the comments after they start to pile up. I imagine this will happen once we get around 500+ comments, or if I write an actual story. (Stories will likely only be posted if something major happens with the Lions, such as a trade or a pick.)

To keep updated with the draft, you can check out Pride of Detroit's draft tracker as well as the updates from Twitter below.  I will be posting updates in the comments as well, though I imagine others will be doing the same when picks are made. (Less work for me!)

To watch the draft on the Internet, check out NFL.com starting at 3:30 p.m. ET.  Also, don't forget to check out Bleeding Green Nation and Mile High Report, who are both blogging live from the draft.

One final thing, as I posted earlier today, is to keep it clean and nice.  I don't want to have to delete comments or ban people, but if it gets ugly I will.  Thanks and let's have some fun today guys!
