The NFL Draft gets underway tonight in downtown Nashville.
Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, who won the Heisman Trophy, is considered likely to go to Arizona as the top overall pick.
No one’s getting you ready for the first few picks like our “Draft in Music City LIVE” team streaming daily at 12 p.m. CT. Nashville’s Cory Curtis and Tampa-based digital insider J.B. Biunno present hour-long shows packed with special guests, in-depth breakdowns, and analysis of the feasible picks.
