Prepare for the awkward hugs, bring on the caps and cue the boos from Jets fans. The 2013 NFL Draft has arrived.

The Kansas City Chiefs have been on the clock since losing to the Denver Broncos, 38-3, to close out the 2012 regular season. Holding the No. 1 overall selection for the first time in franchise history, the Chiefs have their eyes on an offensive lineman, with Eric Fisher reportedly favored over Luke Joeckel in the hours before the draft begins.

Barring a last-minute trade, the Chiefs' first selection will begin the three-day NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City that won't end until Mr. Irrelevant is picked early on Saturday evening.

NFL DRAFT SCHEDULE
Thursday, April 25: Round 1, 8 p.m.
Friday, April 26: Round 2-3, 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 27: Round 4-7, 12 p.m.

In a year without a marquee quarterback and a record 73 underclassmen, intrigue abounds as the festivities get underway in Manhattan. Which team will trade up? Which prospect will fall? Who will wear the best suit?

@ krisjenkins77 :

Geno Smith will definitely have a chip on his shoulder this year. He looked ticked off

Hanging Around

The first round has come and gone. Many offensive lineman but no Te'o and no Geno Smith. There wasn't a single running back either.

04/25/2013 11:46 PM EDT

Not Te'o

The narrative of Te'o "falling" to Ravens was only messed up ... by the Ravens, who went with Florida safety Matt Elam.

No. 31

As Cowboy fans shows a "Can We Trade Our Picks For A New GM" sign, Dallas selects Travis Frederick.

04/25/2013 11:38 PM EDT

No. 30

Rams go linebacker at No. 30 but not Te'o. St. Louis takes Alec Ogletree out of Georgia.

Vikes Land Patterson

After sending a haul of picks to New England, the Vikings take wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson out of Tennessee. As they say, he's got upside.

Joe Andruzzi Speaking

The former Patriots player is giving an emotional address at Radio City, despite the Patriots trading out of this slot. If you can, turn on a TV even if you've just been following on line.

@ brian_mcintyre :

Great trade for the Patriots. Get picks #52, #83, #102 and #229 from the Vikings to do what they wanted to do all along

Patriots Stockpiling Picks

The Vikings trade back into the first round, sending four picks to New England for the No. 29 selection.

No. 28

The Broncos go with defensive tackle Sylvester Williams out of UNC.
