Senior CBSSports.com NFL columnist Pete Prisco and NFL writer Will Brinson will helm much of the live coverage, offering pick-by-pick grades, discussing what's trending in the social space around the draft, and answering fan questions via Twitter and phone calls.
Simultaneously, fantasy football expert Nathan Zegura and draft expert Rob Rang, along with host Kevin Corke, will discuss the latest news, offer predictions and analysis for all seven rounds of the draft, and interview coaches and general managers.
