Title: Draft Day

Starring: Kevin Costner, Chadwick Bosemen, Jennifer Garner

Plot: As hours lead up to the day of the NFL draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (Costner) of the Cleveland Browns tries to pull off one of the biggest deals in NFL draft history.

Why see it: Unlike any other sports related films, this one blows all of them out of the water. Some people don’t realize how draft day in the NFL takes place, but this movie gives you an outline and a good foundation on how the draft really works and how things can alter during draft day. Most general managers take the opportunity to call others to discuss what type of players each one needs or to make a trade deal while others may look at tapes of certain guys during their college days to see what certain types of flaws a player has. This film is a great one for Browns fans because it is centered around the team. If you like the Browns, sports in general, comedy and drama, then you will enjoy Draft Day.

Grade: B+
