At the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams. (IMDb)
An insightful glimpse into the scouting and management of an NFL team leading up to “draft day”, with Costner and the rest of the charismatic men in suits driving forward a briskly paced screenplay spiced with split screen phone calls and unique NFL city title screens, and given depth by brief glimpses into the lives of potential draftees. GM Sonny’s irrelevant and unnecessary personal side plot is the only thing that mars this otherwise concise and engaging sports business drama.
