TAMPA, Fla. -- Two things you need to know before the draft.

1. After playing a little catch with WDAE icon Whitney Johnson with a Nerf ball in the parking lot at One Buc Place, the scouting report goes something like this: Speed isn’t bad for a guy his size, above-average hands, but he throws a spiral that’s only slightly tighter than Tim Tebow's. Plus, Whitney gives the best sports updates I've ever heard several times an hour.

2. Yes, it’s a little boring right now. But it won’t stay that way for long. At 6:45 p.m. ET, I’ll be jumping over to NFL Nation Live, where we’ll be discussing the draft all night long. You can also follow ESPN.com's Draft Cast here.
