2013 NFL Draft: Chiefs' "War Room" Will Host NFL Network Cameras


The Kansas City Chiefs may already know which player they are going to pick with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, but that won’t stop NFL Network from deploying a camera crew to Arrowhead.

On a conference call with media today, the NFL announced that they will have live cameras inside the Chiefs’ draft “War Room” to capture the behind the scenes action when KC makes its pick.

I think it is pretty safe to say that former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli would never have allowed cameras inside his draft room. Pioli was extremely secretive during his time in Kansas City and worked very hard to control the messages being relayed to the public by the media. I can’t imagine Pioli being particularly comfortable with cameras being around on draft day.

The new regime, led by GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid, appears to be a tad less paranoid about speaking to the media.

I think it will be very exciting to get a look behind the scenes. In the past clips and photos from the draft room have been released by the Chiefs after the fact but it should make for some pretty good TV to actually get to see it live.

What do you think, Addicts? Are you excited to see live footage form the KC “War Room?”

    Absolutely, being there at draft party, getting to see the war room in person, and inside on the projection screen, should be awesome.

    Did it do Pioli any good? That man had a EGO problem.

    They are just going to keep saying we are drafting Geno until someone calls them for a trade.

    Sweet we will be able to see them be the first NFL team to pick a tackle 1st. overall…maybe we can get cameras in the other 31 teams war room to get a look at the eruption of laughter from them…this tackle first overall talk is ludicrousness, why do you think it has never happened before? just think on it a minute all you sheep

      Not sure what you mean. Teams have drafted a LT 1st overall before. Jake Long was taken 1st overall in 2008 and Orlando Pace was taken 1st overall in 1997. No one has ever drafted a G 1st overall.
      I’ll agree with you that we shouldn’t take a LT with our 1st overall. Trading an established and very good LT so we can draft a rookie LT is an exercise in futility.

        yes Robert I was mistaken on the G and OT, but I still don’t like it…GO CHIEFS!!!!!
