NEW YORK, NY -- What a day in New York City. It's 70 degrees and sunny as the NFL world turns its attention to the Big Apple for one of football's biggest nights.

It's the eve of the NFL Draft and 23 of the potential first round picks are in New York. This morning, the group of future NFL players were participating in a Play60 event at Chelsea Pier D.

We had a chance to catch up with several of the players and one of them is likely to be holding up a Jaguars uniform tomorrow night around 8:15 p.m.

The Jaguars pick second tomorrow night and there is a lot of momentum for new general manager Dave Caldwell to pick an offensive tackle. We spoke to Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher about their conversations with the Jags.

Joeckel said his only visit on the draft trail was to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags likely won't have a chance to pick Joeckel though because many are projecting Kansas City to take the left tackle with their first pick.

Fisher could be a logical choice for the Jags. This team already has a left tackle in Eugene Monroe, but Fisher could move to the right side and bolster a line that has been insufficient in recent years.

The Jaguars will be represented by a strong contingent of fans who have made the trip to New York and are hoping to get a seat inside Radio City Music Hall tomorrow.

The fans started lining up 4:30 p.m. today to wait in line for a wrist band that will get them in the draft on Thursday.

Security has been increased around the draft in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. Everyone entering Radio City Music Hall will be subject to screenings and, if they refuse, they won't be allowed in to watch.


We will have coverage on twitter @actionsports360 and @BrentAS360 plus a special half hour Draft Special tonight on Action Sports 360 at 10:30pm on FOX30.

Check out our special NFL Draft section, and read up on who we think will be the Jaguars top pick.  Right now, we think Luke Joeckel is going #1 overall to the Kansas City Chiefs.  But, as you can see, it's a tossup for that second pick that the Jaguars, who just updated their uniforms, will pick.

Flying to NYC for the Jaguars draft

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- We are on the plane and headed to the Big Apple for NFL Draft Day 2013.

It will be a busy day catching up with the potential picks in tomorrow's first round.

There is a good Jags fan contingent on our flight and more will arrive in New York later today. They will have to wait in line for hours outside Radio Music City Hall to try and get a wristband to be inside for the draft on Thursday.

More to come later today.
