Another fun night in the NFC South

The NFL draft doesn’t resume until 7 p.m. ET, but the chatter already is starting to pick up. No, I haven’t heard any real strong rumors about NFC South teams looking to make trades in the second round, but that’s possible as the night goes on.

Meanwhile, we’ll start cranking back up with a few programming notes.

I’ll be joining Bill Rosinksi and Darin Gantt on ESPN 730 (AM) in Charlotte right about 5 p.m. ET.

If you joined us on Countdown Live on Thursday night, I’ll invite you to join us again. If you didn’t, you might want to take advantage of this interactive chat. If ever an event was made for a live chat, it’s the draft. Readers can join all eight NFL bloggers, Football Scientist KC Joyner, Scouts Inc.’s Matt Williamson and others. I was astounded by how many people took part Thursday night and wouldn’t be surprised if we get even more NFC South fans involved now that the Falcons and Saints will be joining the draft.

I’ll spend a good chunk of the night on Countdown Live, but I will have to duck out from time to time to write blog items and a column on whatever turns out to be the most intriguing happening of the night.

Also, I encourage you to check out our Insider Draft Tracker. It has detailed analysis on every pick and also includes video.
