In the last 30 years, the NFL draft has gone from a complete afterthought in the minds of sports fans to one of the biggest sporting events of the year. And it’s about to get even bigger. – Jim Weber
First off, I’d like to say that I hate when people say the NFL draft is the most over-hyped event in sports and that it’s a colossal bore.
You have to love the atmosphere of Radio City Music Hall on draft day, when it becomes a mecca for NFL fans all over to descend upon New York City and represent their team. The draft is an event all 32 franchises can enjoy simultaneously, instead of watching two teams most of the country doesn’t care about battle it out in the Super Bowl.
