LIVE FROM NEWARK: The Predators have the following picks today

The Nashville Predators are sitting pretty today. Not only do they have the fourth overall pick in a top-heavy draft year, but they also have a total of 10 picks in the seven-round event.

There are some cons, however. They have no second round pick and, barring any deals, after Nashville makes their highest pick since David Legwand in 1998, they’ll watch 59 others players come off the board before they get a chance to pick again.

Inside the Prudential Center this afternoon, the Predators will be on the clock at the following spots:

RD 1 || #4
RD 3 || #64 (from the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Anders Lindback trade on June 15, 2012.
RD 4 || #95 (from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Matthew Lombardi, Cody Franson trade on July 3, 2011.
RD 4 || #99 (from the Buffalo Sabres in the Paul Gaustad trade on February 27, 2012.
RD 4 || #109
RD 5 || #125 (from the New York Rangers in a swap of draft picks on June 23, 2012.
RD 5 || #146
RD 6 || #155
RD 6 || #177 (from the San Jose Sharks in the Scott Hannan trade on April 3, 2013.
RD 7 || #185
