The NFL’s labor situation may have added a layer of intrigue and perhaps a bit of a damper on the 2011 NFL Draft, but we’re still pumped — and you should be too. After all, your favorite team is about to add a hungry young stud to its roster. Round one begins at Radio City Music Hall tonight, Thursday, April 28, at 8 p.m. The Jets and Giants both have mid-to-late picks, so the question is: Which rookies are about to take a bite out of the Big Apple?  Don’t feel like a loser and watch the flat screen in your boxer shorts at home.  Join da boys at one of our fave places here at
