It's go time! Your 2012 NFL Draft/ Chicago Bears Open Thread

New, comments

Outside of the Super Bowl, this is the biggest night of the year for the NFL, and probably the most exciting night for each team's fanbase. Some feel they are only a couple pieces away from competing for the Lombardi trophy, while others have a lot more work to do. Some fans have complete faith in the executives making the decisions, while others already have jerseys and mattresses soaking in gasoline.

Here's the way this will work: Below the jump, you will find a Draft table. With each selection, we will update the table... Once the Bears make their pick, we will have a stand-alone post go up with a quick analysis. After that, we'll reconvene back here for the remainder of round one.

After its all over for the night, we'll have a wrap-up post that you'll need to hit up before crashing for the night. And then tomorrow we will do it all again. Have fun!

Update: Just after 7pm ET, the Vikings traded their #3 overall pick to the Browns for their #4, and three extra picks (4th, 5th, and 7th round picks).

The Buccaneers traded the #5 pick to the Jaguars, acquiring the #7 pick and a 4th rounder. The Rams traded the #6 pick to the Cowboys for a swap and a second rounder.
