Thursday marks a big day for football fans, as the 2012 NFL draft will kick off on prime time.

The draft is so crucial for a team’s future that it’s hard to ignore. And you can bet Patriots beat writer Jeff Howe is not only not ignoring the draft, but he’s studying this season’s draft class extensively.

Jeff is ready to tackle your draft questions as part of this week’s Twitter Q&A. The questions certainly don’t have to be limited to the draft, though, as he’s ready to discuss the rest of NFL offseason as well.

Jeff will be answering questions on NESN’s Twitter page on Monday at 12 p.m. ET.

If you have a question for Jeff, send it to him using the hashtag #NESNlive.
