Today is NFL Draft Day

So today is the big day for some of our favorite Tigers. I am so glad they have moved the draft coverage to prime time so we can all watch it at home without trying to sneak it in during work.

Of course the big question is what team will snag up our beloved Clemson tiger C.J. Spiller, and how soon he'll get snagged. I have a good feeling he'll be picked early.

Today's Post and Courier article says, "NFL draft prognosticators have C.J. Spiller being drafted anywhere from sixth to 20th in the first round today."

So what are your predictions? I've seen a lot of rumors online that the N.Y. Giants are eyeing C.J. - who is now being referred to in the press as Clifford "C.J." Spiller. I don't know about you, but I prefer C.J. to Clifford. :)

And we can't forget our other notable Tigers who will also be potential draft picks: OLB/DE Ricky Sapp (expected to be picked in the top three rounds), receiver Jacoby Ford, linebacker Kavell Conner and cornerbacks Crezdon Butler and Chris Chancellor (all viewed as third-day prospects), and center/guard Thomas Austin and tight end Michael Palmer are late-round prospects (could possibly go undrafted).

Best of luck to our Tigers! I'll be watching tonight - will you?

"You just stay humble. You know it can be taken away at any moment." -C.J. Spiller

Update: C.J. was picked by the Buffalo Bills! Pick #9.
