The 2014 NFL Draft live stream and TV coverage is finally ready to go. After what seems like a year of hype, the NFL Draft will kick off the first round of action tonight from New York's Radio City Music Hall. The 79th annual NFL Draft live stream is being called by many experts as one of the deepest and most talented selection pools in a long time.
According to a USA Today report on May 7, there are many hot names in this year's NFL Draft, but all eyes will be on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and South Carolina's defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. These two stars not only have the talent to help change around a franchise in a hurry, but they have "star appeal" in many ways. These two guys are predicted to be selected in the top five picks overall in tonight's draft, but where they land is what matters most.
Of course there is no guarantee that a first round pick (or any pick for that matter) is going to be able to transfer their ability from the college game to the NFL with the same amount of success, but that is the beauty of the draft. Just ask all of the teams that passed over Tom Brady several times back in the 2000 draft. Brady wasn't selected until Round 6 by the Patriots and we all know how his career turned out.
Washington Redskins director of player personnel Scott Campbell believes that this draft is so deep that there may be a few Tom Brady types in the later rounds. Campbell could be correct as this draft has many teams believing they can get not just one but two or three impact players for the upcoming season.
"There's some premier guys at the very top, but I think on down through the whole draft, you've got quality players and not just at one specific position," says Washington Redskins director of player personnel Scott Campbell. "You certainly will feel good about the players you're taking and the prospects there that will be there in the middle rounds."
Today is all about hope for all 32 NFL team in the NFL. The excitement for players and fans is at a fever pitch with hopes that bringing in the right player could be the turning point in capturing a Super Bowl trophy.
Fans can catch the 2014 NFL Draft starting Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN and the NFL Network nationally and streaming live online though NFL Network.com and Watch ESPN.
