Settling In For Day 1 Of The 2011 NFL Draft

Posted by Mike Wobschall on April 28, 2011 – 8:47 am

It’s finally here – draft day. The 1st round of the 2011 NFL Draft will be held tonight and it will begin at 7:00 p.m. CT. The Vikings pick 12th of course, so I’m guessing they’ll make a selection sometime between 8:45 and 9:15 p.m. CT. That’s a long time from now, but don’t worry because we’ll have plenty of updates for you between now and then.

All morning and afternoon we’ll keep our ear to the ground and provide you with updates here on the vikings.com Blog, whether it be steam on what the Vikings might do in the 1st round or what teams in front of the Vikings will do in the 1st round. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates that don’t make it to the website. You can follow the Vikings on Twitter by following @VikingsFootball and you can follow me on Twitter by following @wobby.

Once the draft begins at 7:00 p.m. CT, vikings.com is your place for complete coverage of the event and of the Miller Lite Vikings Draft Party. We’ll be live chatting beginning when the draft begins and we’ll also be streaming the draft party live on vikings.com, which you can watch by using your Facebook information. You can post comments and interact with other Vikings fans who couldn’t make it to the Miller Lite Vikings Draft Party.

So it’s a jam-packed day and it’s underway now. Be sure to stay tuned to vikings.com and the vikings.com Blog and both Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date on all of today’s developments. You can also find all of the action in one place by visiting the vikings.com NFL Draft Hub Page.

    Mike Wobschall,

    I have a question for you about the streaming site. Will fans be able to continuously on it?

    The last time that I tried to join in one of the streaming conversations from this website, I was allowed to post once out of what had become more than 30-attempts. That was very frustrating and made the novelty of the straming site completely pointless.

    Thanks,

    Parody

    **That is: Will fans be able to POST continuously on it.

    Sorry for not checking my work.

    @Shawn,

    Thanks for the update on the CBA.

    The NFL appears to be the strongest of the four big leagues (MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL). If they change their salary structure/free agency to that of MLB, it would be a huge mistake.

    That structure and the steroid scandals have hurt MLB severely.

    FJ They are probably tired of yours and Parody’s negativity!
