Each year we here at purpleTERRITORY Media cover the first round of the NFL draft via a live show/chat/message board event (and then we typically have held a non-virtual Day2Draft Party somewhere out in the community).

So, tonight you can catch myself (Joe ‘Don’t Call Me JJ’ Johnson, owner of, Kirby ‘Please Call me JJ’ O’Connor (Managing Editor of Writer/Draft (S)Expert), DeShawn ‘Enter Joke Here’ Vaughn (Senior Writer purpleTERRITORY Media), as well as some special guests like former Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice (Host of ‘Odds and Ends w/ Mike Tice‘), Sean Borman (Managing Editor of and Joe Oberle (Editor of purpleTERRITORY Media/Co-Host of ‘Morning Joes’).
