With rumors swirling that National Football League draft will soon go out on the road, taking place in a different location each year, the seventy-ninth annual event might be the last time for a while in which fans can gather at Radio City Music Hall and boo the choices of their home teams in person. The 2014 NFL draft, with the Houston Texans selecting first, the Giants twelfth, and the Jets eighteenth, features such projected early picks as South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, and Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard. Does Gang Green go for a wideout to give Geno Smith and Michael Vick better targets? Will Big Blue seek to improve its defensive line? You can find out May 8-10, when the draft unfolds at Radio City; admission is free, but seating is limited, and you must get a wristband the night before. (You also have to follow the league’s overly aggressive “All Clear” bag policy.) The first round will begin on May 8 at 8:00; wristbands will be available starting at 7:00 pm on May 7 on the Fiftieth St. side of Radio City. (Be prepared to give contact information that would make the NSA very happy.) Wristband holders can then line up at 6:00 pm on May 8 to get their seat location, which will be distributed randomly, so there’s no need to get there any earlier. Wristbands for round two on May 9 will be available the night before at 10:00, while entry for day three is first come, first served starting on Saturday morning at 11:00. You can also get free seatfiller tickets for rounds two and three in advance here.
