Hello fellow Titans fans, As Editor I am pleased to announce that TitanSized will be hosting live draft coverage of every pick throughout all 7 rounds. I will be offering analysis of each pick, including our boys in two tone blue, and fielding questions regarding the draft, free agency, status of the lockout etc etc.
The chat will start 30 minutes before the 2011 NFL draft is set to start and will continue through the last pick on Saturday.
The Titans currently own the 8th overall pick as well as pick in each round and 2 picks in the 4th and 7th rounds.
Like last year, this year’s draft will attract a primetime, weeknight audience, beginning with the first round on Thursday night at 7 p.m. CDT. The second and third rounds are set for Friday, April 29 beginning at 5 p.m. CDT, and the draft concludes with Rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 30 at 11 a.m. CDT. The current format was unveiled for the first time in 2010.
Fans can watch the draft in its entirety on NFL Network and ESPN. Radio listeners can tune to the Titans Radio Network, including Nashville flagship 104.5 The Zone. Titans Radio will feature special draft programming throughout the weekend, including gavel-to-gavel coverage of the first round.
Titansized.com, will provide up-to-the-minute information on the team’s selections and press conference reviews with General Manager Mike Reinfeldt, Head Coach Mike Munchak and other members of the organization.
