The 2019 NFL draft will be taking place from April 25th to the 27th. To celebrate this occasion, the NFL will be hosting fun community events all week long. The entire week will be filled with different activities from fighting hunger to concerts.
This NFL draft is set to be the biggest of all time yet, leaving a great lasting and positive energy on the city of Nashville. Local families and families from all around the country have been traveling to Nashville to take part in this once in a lifetime event.
Starting the week out is the Huddle Against Hunger event. During this event, prospects, players, and NFL legends will take place in activities meant to fight against hunger. This event is set to make a lasting impact around the state of Tennessee, hopefully changing the current state of hunger.
Various football clinics will be taking place during the week in Nashville and other nearby cities as well. On the 24th, there will be a Unified Flag Football game hosted by the Tennessee Titans and the Special Olympics. This game will bring together people who suffer from intellectual disabilities and team them up with people who don’t. The NFL Play 60 initiative is meant to break this barrier between people suffering from disabilities.
If you’re a fan looking to participate in some events, you can too! The NFL Draft Experience presented by Oikos Triple Zero is planned to be the greatest experience yet, featuring live music of twenty different artists. The festival will be held from the 25th to the 27th, and it’ll be the first of its yet to have a free live music experience. All concerts will be free, so anyone can come and enjoy the music.
Other fan events include interactive exhibits, immersive games such as virtual reality games, free player autograph sessions, and much more. This is truly an experience that you won’t want to miss.
On top of all of these amazing offers, the NFL draft continues to give back to the community as well.
A high school student from South Carolina, Kyree Huggins, will have the opportunity to be the Fuel Up To Play 60’s student reporter. He’ll be able to cover the red carpet, interviewing as he pleases. He’ll also have access to the press conferences with prospects after they’ve been drafted.
Kacey, a Make-A-Wish child, will also have his wish granted during the draft. He’ll be able to join Commissioner Goodell on the main stage, and he’ll be the one to announce the Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s first round pick. A truly amazing experience for him.
Active duty members and veterans will have their own ceremony as well where they’re honored for their service.
This years NFL draft will no doubt be one of the greatest of all time. If you can’t make it out to Nashville for the experience, you can see updates from national networks that will be covering the event.
