Last week, I agreed to integrate a Verizon Wireless smart phone, equipped with a new NFL Mobile app, into my draft coverage.
Verizon and the NFL struck a four-year partnership, and one of the major highlights appears to be live-streaming of the very popular NFL RedZone, which tracks multiple games and shifts to one in particular when a team is inside an opponents' 20-yard line.
I've never had a chance to watch NFL RedZone, since I'm usually busy when it's on.
But I had a more pressing reason to hope Verizon could come through for me today.
The Bears don't have a first-round pick, so I won't be watching the draft tonight from Halas Hall. But I realized about an hour ago that where I planned to watch the event from doesn't have cable.
That's where the Motorola Droid comes in.
I will watch the NFL Network via the phone's NFL Mobile app, which, by the way, doesn't cost a cent.
That's how I will be tracking tonight's draft, which could be one of the most interesting in years.
I will post on a Live Blog here and post on my Twitter account (skjensen). Feel free to shoot me questions or comments at either.
