As it stands, we have one pick on the 8th. Their board will be set. I don't see much need for anyone outside of OB, and that shouldn't take long.
The coaches have been practicing running mock practices at the facilities, so everything should go smoothly.

It forces players who want extra on-field work to get together among themselves, usually at facilities not nearly as nice as NFL team facilities. It also forces players to risk suffering injuries away from the team facility, which then allows the teams to elect not to pay the players for so-called “non-football injuries.”
