A behind-the-scenes look into the inner workings of the NFL Draft, its history, and the stories of those whose lives are changed in a single night.

Since moving to primetime television in 2010, the NFL Draft is one of the biggest events in professional sports. In fact, this event’s ratings have now eclipsed many professional sporting events! But what goes on behind the scenes? How do those youngsters looking to make a name for themselves prepare? What goes on in each team’s War Room/

Starting from the beginning, veteran journalist Thomas George shares the history of the NFL Draft—how scouting, preparation, and the event as a whole has evolved into one of the most talked-about sports events in the country.

With interviews with current and former NFL players, coaches, and executives, George humanizes what it’s like for a player waiting for his name to be called, general managers pining over which players to choose, back-room deals between organizations, and everything that goes along with it.
