2011 NFL Draft: Round One open thread

(Update from 3k at 8:05pm ET)  I'll add the results as we go until we hop over to the next thread:

Pick Team Player
1 Carolina Cam Newton (QB, Auburn)
2 Denver Von Miller (OLB, Texas A&M)
3 Buffalo Marcell Dareus (DT/DE, Alabama)
4 Cincinnati AJ Green (WR, Georgia)
5 Arizona Patrick Peterson (CB, LSU)
6 Atlanta (via trade with Cleveland) Julio Jones (WR, Alabama)

The time is finally upon us. The 2011 NFL Draft gets underway at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. Television programming starts even earlier, in case you have missed out on the wall to wall coverage today. 

We'll break in with news as it happens, big news. We don't plan to broadcast every single pick, unless it in some way directly impacts the St. Louis Rams. When the Rams do make a pick, or a trade, we will have a post up with info and thoughts around that pick. We'll be recapping the first round tomorrow. 

For more draft coverage, SBN is all over the place, including correspondents at Radio City Music Hall, in the press box getting live updates as it happens. And SBN has three sites inside Radio City Music Hall, all three of whom will have Twitter feeds full of, uh, stuff:@StampedeBlue@BleedingGreen, and @GangGreenNation
