One hour until the months and months of speculating finally comes to an end. The 2019 NFL Draft will commence at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, ending the onslaught of mock drafts and baseless draft rumors.

The Detroit Lions currently hold the eighth pick in the draft, but if the rumors hold true, they may not stay there tonight. Will they trade down? If so, how far? And what will the compensation be?

Or if they stay put, which of the rumored prospect will the Lions target? The unpopular picks of Jonah Williams or T.J. Hockenson? Or will they go with a people-pleaser like Brian Burns or Ed Oliver or Devin White? Or maybe one of the top guys like Josh Allen fortuitously falls to Detroit.

If you aren’t already at the Pride of Detroit Draft Party, come hang with us here. Y’all can chat all night as we wait for the Lions to make their pick.

Also, we’ll have a Twitter list embedded below so that you can keep track of what’s happening as it happens. WARNING: Twitter may tip picks before they’re announced on the television. If you don’t want to see the tipped picks, stay in the comment section.
