The draft is underway!

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Greetings from the Minnesota Vikings' media work room, where I'll be covering the first round of the 2013 draft.

As always, I'll have reaction posts to each NFC North team's selections, and then I'll find time to write a longer post on a topic to be determined as well. That topic may or may not be related to a player whose name rhymes with Ranti Re'o.

We also have our "Countdown Live" chat underway, one I'll participate in throughout the evening. You can either scroll down a few posts on this blog to gain entrance or follow this link.
