Earth Day smearth day. At 6:30pm tonight the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft gets under way and that's truly an occasion to celebrate. This year is the first that the draft is featured in prime time and spread out over four days. I prefer the previous weekend-only schedule but who cares what I think? (The answer is "Nobody.")

Chronicle classifieds sales rep Bobby Leath and Chronicle Sports blogger Timothy Braun share their predictions below. Follow the Draft live on ESPN and the NFL Network.
