RFB has the draft covered for you with our live blog in case you can’t make it in front of the TV or can’t check out the live stream. So far the experts correctly picked the first two picks, then missed on the third one. So much for being experts these last three months.

Keep checking back for picks, the live blog will be updated as it happens. Hit that refresh button every 10 minutes or so.  Also follow us on twitter @Riverfrontball for our live tweets as well.

If you are watching ESPN like me, I’m sorry you are in pain as well. Mel Kiper covering his rear after missing every pick is entertaining but listening to Chris Berman is enough to jump out the window.

And that is it for the night, thanks to everyone for following along. The Bengals have the 23rd pick (55)  in the second round and the 24th pick in the third round (88).
