The Arizona Cardinals will kick off the festivities at 8:00 p.m. ET as they possess the first overall pick in the draft.
As for the Redskins, they'll be picking at No. 15, though there has been no shortage of rumors that a move could be made to climb up the order.
Once the commissioner takes the stage, all predictions go out the window. Luckily, we'll have you covered with all the picks, trades and moves here in the live blog and draft tracker.
NFL Draft 2019 Redskins First-Round Tracker and Live Updates:
DRAFT PICK: No. 9 - Buffalo Bills (DT Ed Oliver, Houston): After finding their franchise quarterback last year, the Bills now look to find a core piece for the defense. Bills Mafia should fall in love with a guy who has the potential to wreak havoc on the line.
DRAFT PICK: No. 8 - Detriot Lions (TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa): A big target for Matthew Stafford, Hockenson could immediately become a favorite option for the veteran passer.
DRAFT PICK: No. 7 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LB Josh Allen, Kentucky): Sacksonville just gained its newest member and became even scarier in the process. Josh Allen may not fill a glaring hole for the Jaguars, but he fell in their lap and No. 7 and it became a situation where you take the best player available. Joining Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue, opposing quarterbacks better beware.
DRAFT PICK: No. 6 - New York Giants (QB Daniel Jones, Duke): Here's our first "wow" moment of the draft. It wasn't even a given that the Giants were going to go with a quarterback at No.6, but it looks like they are going all in on Duke product Daniel Jones. The passer shot up draft boards as Thursday approached, and now he finds himself as the newest QB in the NFC East. At 6'5'', Jones could be viewed as more athletic Eli Manning. He also had the same coach that the Manning's had in David Cutcliffe. We know New York loves Eli, so maybe this pick makes perfect sense.
This also makes Dwayne Haskins and the Redskins at No. 15 a real possibility.
DRAFT PICK: No. 5 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (ILB Devin White, LSU): Losing Kwon Alexander in the offseason, the Bucs may have just found his replacement in Devin White. A talented linebacker, White is in line to become the centerpiece of a Tampa Bay defense that features Gerald McCoy and JPP up front and Todd Bowles at the helm.
DRAFT PICK: No. 4 - Oakland Raiders (DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson): Well with Jon Gruden at the helm, you can't really consider anything a surprise. However, Clelin Ferrell at No. 4 is something not many saw coming. The defensive end from Clemson is incredibly talented, but the Raiders passing on the likes of Josh Allen and Ed Oliver makes you think twice. Oakland still has two more picks tonight.
DRAFT PICK: No. 3 - New York Jets (DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama): After making some big offseason additions, the Jets use their draft pick to upgrade the defense by selecting Quinnen Williams. With eight sacks and 71 tackles in 2018, Williams was a standout on a loaded Crimson Tide roster. New York added free agent C.J. Mosley to lead their linebacking core, and now Williams makes the line of that defense a lot scarier.
DRAFT PICK: No. 2 - San Francisco 49ers (DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State): The first defensive player in a loaded class is Nick Bosa, as the 49ers use yet another first round pick on a defensive line addition. Bosa only played in three games this season before an injury led to him sitting out the rest of the year, but the former Buckeye will still provide an immediate positive impact up front for San Francisco.
DRAFT PICK: No. 1 - Arizona Cardinals (QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma): Not a huge surprise, the Cardinals have selected Kyler Murray No. 1 overall. Murray is the second consecutive Oklahoma passer to go first in the draft, following in the steps of Baker Mayfield.
With a new head coach in Kliff Kingsbury, it looks as if Arizona is ready to start the new regime with a new man at the helm of the offense. There will be concerns about his height, but there's no denying his passing skills and athleticism. Now the main question becomes: What happens to Josh Rosen?
8:13 p.m. The Arizona Cardinals are officially on the clock. Here. We. Go.
7:02 p.m. Could the Redskins be looking to move up in the draft and grab Duke QB Daniel Jones? According to JP Finlay, that seems unlikely. While rumors earlier in the week suggested Washington could potentially climb from No.15, that doesn't look to be the case anymore.
6:30 p.m. Less than two hours until the clock starts ticking, there's plenty of information to get caught up on. Here's what you need to know:
