TAMPA, Fla. -- I’m getting ready to head out to One Buccaneer Place, where I’ll be covering the first round of tonight's NFL draft.
Yes, that decision was made before the Darrelle Revis trade took away Tampa Bay’s first-round pick. But barring some team trading up, the bosses in Bristol didn’t see any compelling reason for me to travel anywhere else. Heck, the Bucs still could become the big story if they trade back into the first round.
I may even swing by Raymond James Stadium to check out the atmosphere at the Buccaneers' fan draft party, where Revis and some other prominent players are scheduled to appear.
But I’ll be set up at One Buccaneer Place before the draft starts at 8 p.m. ET. As soon as I get settled in, I’ll join our live chat, which starts at 7 p.m. ET. A module for the chat will be posted on the blog later this afternoon or early this evening.
I’ll be chatting throughout the draft. As soon as each NFC South team makes its pick, I’ll post a quick analysis. Then, I’ll chose whatever the division’s biggest story of the night is and write a column on that.
Stay tuned for what should be a fun night.
