We are hours away from every American’s favorite draft. The 2013 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night as the entire first round will be seen in primetime.

Recently the NFL changed its draft coverage by placing it in primetime. It worked perfectly and will only continue to improve in ratings this year.

Here is what has happened over the past week:


  • GM: Worst NFL Draft in past 10 to 12 years
  • Jets won’t rule out QB; fielding trade offers. They need a quarterback but how far will they reach for one? If Matt Barkley is on the table then maybe they do decide to take him. But do they go back to a USC quarterback? I’m not sure
  • Shanahan: RG III plays only if 100 percent
  • Bills reportedly eyeing Matt Barkley, not Ryan Nassib. I have Buffalo taking Barkley with their top 10 pick because of the name and hype. He would be a much better option with the pick than reaching for Nassib
  • Dolphins, Chiefs talking Branden Albert trade again
  • Browns’ linebacker Quentin Groves arrested on charges of solicitation
  • Lions DE Ronnell Lewis arrested during bar fight
  • Report: Cedric Benson will talk with Packers
  • Giants’ Andre Brown signs restricted free agent tender
  • Mara says Victor Cruz deal ‘will get done at some point’
  • James Harrison signing with Cincinnati is official. It will be different seeing him line up against the Pittsburgh Steelers every year but it sure will be interesting
  • Jaguars zero in on top draft pick; won’t wait long for trade offers
  • Chris Long restructures deal with Rams
  • Seahawks re-sign safety Kam Chancellor
  • New York Jets are reportedly expected to offer fifth-round draft pick for New Orleans Saints’ tailback Chris Ivory
  • Steelers will take a long look at QBs in draft, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • NBC’s Al Michaels arrested for alleged DUI
  • ESPN, NFL Network agree not to spoil suspense of draft on Twitter. Finally something is changing with how we hear and see the draft. Twitter is great but terrible around draft time. With everybody wanting to be the first, it really ruins the draft. Hopefully this does some repairing to how we watch the draft
  • Jets trade cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay Bucs. It was clear he and the Jets didn’t have the best communication from the get-go


Here is the latest injury news around the NFL:


  • Sources: CB Milliner has had five surgeries
  • Lions’ Nate Burleson says recovery ahead of schedule
