The 2014 NFL Draft is just around the corner and a new sports movie is slated to hit theaters just a month before, prepping football fanatics for this year's picks.

Kevin Costner stars in the film, ironically called Draft Day, that follows a Cleveland Browns general manager (Costner) who tries to end a 13-year unlucky streak in NFL draft picks for the team. There's a lot of pressure in the task, as well as fun and competition, that relays a message of determination in this movie suitable for football and non-football fans. Jennifer Garner and Sean 'Diddy' Combs also star in the new flick, in theaters April 11.

Throughout the movie, you'll notice a bunch of Tervis tumblers and mugs. That's why they've created the ultimate football fan's sweepstake prize, giving one lucky follower a chance to win a trip for two to New York City to attend Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft on May 9, 2014. Rules, guidelines and a chance to enter to win can be found at tervistoppick.com now through April 16.
