Draft Season
DRAFT SEASON is the thrilling story of four young football players as they prepare for the bewildering, multi-million dollar extravaganza that is the NFL Draft. Morgan Trent, Kenny McKinley, Frantz Joseph and Lydon Murtha come from different backgrounds, but are united in their determination to make it to the NFL. Once they have played their final down of college football, their eyes immediately turned toward the NFL Draft. DRAFT SEASON takes you inside the everyday battles each player endures as he tries to achieve his lifelong goal of playing in the NFL.

The annual NFL Draft has become more than a rote selection of players. Itís a crucible of childhood dreams and professional glory, where entire careers are made, and the trajectories of whole families are altered. For football fans, itís a chance to get an off-season fix and enjoy a behind the scenes journey into the NFL. What players do during this time is as important as any on field achievement during their college careers.

DRAFT SEASON is the first time readers can live the playersí experience, as these young men Ė physically powerful but often emotionally fragile Ė experience a tumultuous four months from collegiate dominance, through the first tinges of career anxiety.
