2014 NFL Draft: First Round Open Thread

It's time. - Ryan Dunsmore

It's finally here, and your Houston Texans are the first team up. Talk about all of the action in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft on Battle Red Blog.

We did it! We made it to the 2014 NFL Draft! It's here!  Our reward for suffering through an abysmal 2-14 campaign in 2013 is here!

Even better, we don't have to wait for other teams to make their picks before we find out who the Houston Texans are taking!  For the first time since Week Two of the 2014 regular season, we can honestly say the Texans are No. 1!

Unless there's a trade. But Adam Schefter said there won't be a trade. So there better not be a trade. Especially not for Ryan Mallett.

I'm already lightheaded. Let's solve the mystery and find out who'll be the newest member of our beloved Houston Texans, and then let's spend the rest of the evening talking about that and all sorts of other draft-related things.

This is your first open thread for the 2014 NFL Draft. We will have a separate post for each Texanscentric move this evening, and we'll create additional open threads as necessary. You can also open a window on your browser for what I'm sure will be fair and balanced reactions to the draft as it plays out from yours truly on BRB's official Twitter feed.

Enough is enough.  Comment as only you can and enjoy your the first evening of the 2014 NFL Draft.

REMEMBER: DO NOT TIP, DIVULGE, OR COMMENT ON THE MOVES OR PICKS ANYWHERE IN THIS, OR ANY OTHER, THREAD(S) UNTIL THEY ARE ANNOUNCED ON THE TELEVISION BROADCAST. Violating that rule will result in a ban.
