NEW YORK -- After a slight delay (two hours), the Beast arrived in the city a little past midnight Thursday. This morning, I'll join my pal Randall Liu from the league office and nine players for a youth football clinic in Central Park. Here are the players attending this weekend's draft:

The nine players will begin their day with an appearance on CBS' "Early Show" before heading over to Central Park for the NFL Play 60 Youth Clinic. There's a remote chance I'll be speaking at the clinic, so I've prepared extensive notes. For some reason, the kids in New York are dying to hear about ESPN.com's Blog Network.

The players will then visit Mt. Sinai Children's Hospital before ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. A photo shoot in front of the Radio City Music Hall marquee is next on the agenda, and the players will be interviewed by ESPN and the NFL Network at Radio City after that.

Pretty full day. I'll tag along as long as the league will allow it, which is probably not long. We've been offered access to Curry, but I'm quickly finding out that pretty much every reporter in the country has a similar arrangement. I'll check in via Blackberry every now and then.
