What is the NFL Draft-a-Thon?

Think of the Draft-a-Thon as somewhat of a Draft party, except it’s with some massive celebrities and your favorite players — and for charity!

There’s not really a schedule as such, with it more just being conversations among all the big names that appear, sharing their stories and talking about their relationship with football.

So tune into the Draft-a-Thon and see how your favorite players, gamers and influencers feel about the early Draft picks.
