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?”
