NFL Draft Under Way

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

nfl-logoThe week began with big news from the NFL as the league released the 2010 regular season schedule.
One of the most exciting announcements is that the season will kick off with current Super Bowl champs, the New Orleans Saints, taking on last year’s NFC rival, the Minnesota Vikings, for the opening game. In what was one of the most memorable match-ups of last season, the highly anticipated rematch will get the season under way with a bang.
Yesterday marked another big day in football, as the first of the three-day NFL draft. The buzz surrounding the initial draft picks goes to the Sooners with three of the first four picks coming from the University of Oklahoma. The St. Louis Rams scored the number one pick, choosing Sam Bradford, 2008 Heisman winner and quarterback for the University of Oklahoma.
The 2010 draft is being broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall in New York. An event filled with this much nail-biting drama deserves its place on center stage.
Stay tuned for draft pick rounds two and three today, and rounds four through seven on Saturday.
