Ready. Set. Go! Welcome to the 2013 NFL Draft open thread. We'll use this thread as long as possible, but I figure it will hold up performance wise for at least the first ten picks.
Not since 2009 has Mile High Report rocked the NFL Draft so hard. If you haven't already, print out the big board to the right to keep track of things. The Denver Broncos are due at #28, but John Elway did hint to the fact that they would trade up to 20-24 of a certain player fell that far.
NOTE: Keep refreshing this page after each pick as I will be updating this thread live with reactions from our own MHR Staffers. Go Broncos!

First Round - 2013 NFL Draft
|2013 NFL Draft - Round 1|
|1||Eric Fisher, OT||Central Michigan||Good, smart pick. Hard to go wrong there, Alex Smith is likely happy. ~ Topher Doll|
|2||Luke Joeckel, OT||Texas A&M||Not a bad pick, they need to give Gabbert some weapons but keeping him upright is never bad. MJD will appreciate that as well. ~ Topher Doll|
|3||Dion Jordan, DE/OLB||Oregon||Jordon is good but they don't really need help there, they need an OT, DT and DB. They already have a good pass rush. ~ Topher Doll
What the hell just happened? ~ Mike Gomez
|4||Lane Johnson, OT||Oklahoma||The Eagles line has so many holes but Vick/Dixon/etc will love a new LT ~ Topher Doll|
|5||Ezekiel Ansah, DE||BYU||Ziggy Ansah is a very solid pick for the Lions. They lost Cliff Avril and need a pass rusher. Ziggy is very raw, but his potential is very hard to pass up. Suh, Fairley and Ziggy is a solid young DL for the Lions. ~ Scotty Payne|
|6||Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB||LSU||After the fear of drafting a QB, Mingo makes the Browns good defense even better by adding a great pass rusher to their 3-4 scheme. ~ Topher Doll|
|7||Johnathan Cooper, OG||North Carolina||Johnathan Cooper is a rare talent and immediate game-changer. He can play guard or move to center; either way he'll elevate the Cardinals' ground game. ~ Monty|
|8||Tavon Austin, WR||West Virginia||Tavon Austin is a solid pick for the Rams. He's electric and will be fast on that turf. He is replacing Amendola. Sam Bradford is smiling right now. ~ Scotty Payne|
|9||Dee Milliner, CB||Alabama||Milliner just doesn't seem to make sense. The Jets has the 3rd ranked passing defense last season without Revis, who drafts to their strongest unit? ~ Topher Doll|
|10||Chance Warmack, OG||Alabama||Chris Johnson is happy. Warmack is a very solid guard and will step in and start right away for the Titans. ~ Scotty Payne|
