If you’re like me, the NFL Draft room is one of the most intriguing places to be during the entire football year. What goes on behind those closed doors is a mystery to most, but access would provide fans with unparalleled information for the moments in which critical football decisions are made.
The closest we ever get seeing what goes on in those rooms is when NFL Network cuts into the brief moments of each team’s draft room moments after they’ve made their pick or, occasionally, while they’re still on the clock. No audio, no view of their draft board. Just pure unbridled joy from everyone in the room who is sure they just made the right decision.
It’s not much, but it is something. And this year, Detroit Lions fans will be treated to that small glimpse once again. The NFL announced on Thursday that they will have cameras in 23 different franchise’s war room, including the Lions.
If you need a reminder as to what that may look like, last year we got to see an elated room after they surprisingly took safety Tracy Walker in the third round.

Who will have the Lions draft room aggressive high-fiving this year?
