In case this is your first draft with us here at BFTB (and, judging by our increase in traffic over last year, there's a good chance of that), I'll walk you through how things will be handled today.

Thursday

  • 2pm: I'll make a post with the latest Chargers rumors (if there are any), give you a run-down on what the major mock drafts are saying and give you my best guess on what San Diego will do today.
  • 4pm: I'll be posting an Open Thread so that you can chat along as you watch the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. This is for general conversation about the first round leading up to, and after, the San Diego Chargers pick.
  • Chargers First Round Selection: After the Bolts make their pick, I'll be writing a post about the selection with some quick thoughts about how that player fits into this roster and what they could potentially bring to the table in 2012. The comments section of this post is for discussing the Chargers pick only.
  • Chargers Trade: Should the Chargers make a trade, up or down, I'll write a post detailing the trade and probably speculate on why they're doing it. The comments section of this post is for discussing the trade only.
  • First Round Wrap-Up: I'll make a post immediately following the conclusion of the first round, detailing what happened with the Chargers (and any other big news, especially concerning division rivals). Any conversation about the first round can be moved here, and this can work as your "BFTB After Dark" post if you want to discuss other things.

Seems easy enough, right? Keep the conversation about big Chargers moves to the post that discusses them, all other discussions about the first round stay in the Open Thread. This way we remain as clean and organized as possible.
