This year’s NFL Draft isn’t loaded with big-time names, but it will still make for tons of good television. Here are some things to watch out for:
Roger Goodell hugs. The New York Times had a great explanation on how the tradition of picks hugging the commish came to be. I’m really hoping for an Obama-Pizza Guy hug moment. Or maybe one of these handshakes.
Keep your eyes glued to the TV. There is a gentleman’s agreement between the NFL Network and ESPN to not reveal potential picks via Twitter.
Jim Irsay’s Twitter account. The Colts’ owner is one of the funniest guys to follow. His latest tweet said that there is a big draft party this Thursday. Could be fun.
Who will win the Brady Quinn award for most awkward Green Room moment? My money’s on Geno Smith. For those scoring at home, here is a list of invites to the Green Room.
Shots of Diddy, Terry Crews, and Kevin Costner. Those three will be on hand to shoot footage for the upcoming film Draft Day.
The 49ers surplus of picks. The reigning NFC champions have thirteen picks. Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News bets that the Niners are going to be busy.
From The Score a list of all Prop Bets going on tonight. I’m taking the “over” on 45 mentions of “Tremendous Upside”
SB Nation has put together a drinking game for tonight.
These are just a few things to keep an eye out for. Keep tuned to NIS Sports for great analysis and snarky observations.
