Hey, there’s an NFL Draft movie in the works! It’ll probably be the best movie featuring the NFL Draft since “Jerry Maguire.” It’ll probably also be the worst NFL Draft movie since Jerry Maguire. I know that was really a thinly-disguised “chick flick” and buddy picture about an Arizona Cardinals WR and his agent, but I’m really stretching to think of any other NFL Draft movie. Hollywood has overlooked this topic for some reason. Don’t they understand how much us sports bloggers obsess with this topic during the month of April? So I was excited when I heard about this project on the Tribune news wires. “Draft Day” just added Denis Leary to it’s cast which includes headliners Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner. Segments of this NFL Draft movie will be filmed in New York during the actual NFL Draft on April 25th. In “Draft Day,” Costner plays the GM of the Cleveland Browns who struggles to keep the team from losing so much. (Is this an NFL Draft movie or “reality television?”) In this very real life scenario, Costner’s character has an antagonistic relationship with Leary’s character- the Head Coach of the Browns. No word yet if Mel Kiper Jr. has been cast, but I’m thinking Count Chocula and/or Joey Buttafuoco would work. Here’s our first round NFL mock draft with detailed player analysis And we have a 7 round 2013 NFL mock draft, which makes every pick, but doesn’t have detailed player descriptions like you’ll see below.
