The NFL Draft begins tonight.

The NFL Draft starts tonight at 8 p.m. ET with a simulcast between ESPN and NFL Network providing live coverage for the event.

It is worth noting that a live stream is available at WatchESPN and Watch NFL Network for participating cable providers.

While it is unlikely that Wake Forest will have a draft pick tonight in the First Round, there are plenty of ACC players to watch, including whether or not North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky will go to the sad, sad existence that is the Cleveland Browns.

Also, while we are all big Wake Forest fans, we likely still enjoy an NFL team of some sort and this is a fun night to be fans of a professional team too. At least watch so you can laugh at the fans booing Roger Goodell

We have put together draft profiles for the two Wake Forest players who are most likely to get drafted at some point this weekend, even though that will probably not happen tonight:
