PFT Live: Emmitt Smith, Tavon Austin


We’ve been talking about it for months and now it’s finally here.

The NFL Draft gets underway on Thursday night and, as always, we’ve got you covered from every angle. That includes PFT Live, which comes to you from New York for the next two days.

Mike Florio made the trip up from West Virginia for all the fun and he’ll be joined Thursday by another refugee from the Mountaineer State. Wide receiver Tavon Austin’s exploits at the University of West Virginia have made him one of the most coveted commodities in the draft and he’ll talk to Florio about his expectations for Thursday. Austin’s been linked with several teams at the top of the draft and we’ll hear what offense he thinks suits him best during the conversation.

Florio will also speak to a man who went in the first round in 1990 before going on to three Super Bowl rings and the most rushing yards in NFL history. Emmitt Smith will share his memories of draft day and give some thoughts about what he thinks will happen over the next three days.

You can watch it all live at noon ET.
