For the first time in NFL draft history, Radio City Music Hall will feature music for the college football prospects in attendance. That's right—the NFL has decided to allow walk-up theme songs:
For the first time ever, draftees have chosen the music that plays over speakers as they walk to the stage in Radio City Music Hall.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) May 7, 2014
Not many of the prospects' selections are not known yet, but it appears likely No. 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney is having a tough time sticking to one song:
NFL asst. is asking draft picks for their walk out music after pick. Clowney first picked Migos "Handsome and Wealthy" but switched.— Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) May 7, 2014
Just imagine Clowney walking on stage to shake commissioner Roger Goodell's hand with this track blasting in the background (Warning: Video contains NSFW language):
The theme of likely top-10 pick Khalil Mack has been made public:
A fitting choice for this occasion, to be sure.
It would come as no surprise if Johnny Manziel picked Drake's "Draft Day" as his theme considering he's name-dropped in it (Warning: Video contains NSFW language):
The odds of this Drake track being picked by at least one draftee have to be pretty high (Warning: Video contains NSFW language):
This year's quarterback class has received a lot of hype, and walk-up songs present a great opportunity for them to try and land endorsement deals like others before them.
Whoever's working the DJ booth better remember to play the clean versions.
Which song would you pick for your walkout music?
