While fans wait with baited breath to see what players their home teams select in the NFL draft, another big uncertainty looms: what song will the draftees choose to play during their crowning moment? For the first time ever, the NFL is letting the prospects choose their walk-up music, Bleacher Report writes.
The songs will most likely be hip-hop, pop, or country music based on what gets played in locker rooms. Johnny Manziel will no doubt choose “Draft Day,” a song written about him by buddy Drake.
Potential first pick, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, originally was going to go with the song “Handsome and Wealthy” by rappers Migos, but changed his mind. He hasn’t said what he’s changed it to.
NFL asst. is asking draft picks for their walk out music after pick. Clowney first picked Migos “Handsome and Wealthy” but switched.

The only certain song choice is from another top pick, outside linebacker Khalil Mack, who’s using Pharrell’s “Happy,” to express his joy about beginning his NFL career.
Other expected top picks in the draft are quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Brett Bortles and wide receivers Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans and Odell Beckham Jr.
