This is America. America means football. Today is day one of the NFL amateur draft. You can watch it on TV or you can watch the Big Bang Theory and the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. If you enjoy not sleeping on the couch your significant other would appreciate you choose the latter. If this conundrum exists for you and you have an Xbox One, fear not! Xbox and the NFL have a solution for you. Snap the NFL app on your Xbox One and follow the NFL draft from there.
The Draft Tracker will, uh, track the draft live all weekend long. If you miss any of the action, previous picks can be highlighted while still watching all of the live footage. Additional analysis and game footage will be given for each player picked.
“Our NFL experience currently features a large volume of NFL Draft videos and analysis, with new video content arriving daily,” executive producer of Sports at Xbox David Jurenka said. “The control we give to fans is what makes our system unique. If your team drafts Johnny Manziel and you want to see some clips of him, you can just jump in and do that. We’re taking what has traditionally been a passive TV experience and making it interactive and personalized.”
Prior to the draft team and player analysis, including mock drafts will be made available via the NFL app. The NFL and Xbox giving you more TV for your TV!
