Drake, Lil Wayne & Kanye West Dominate Walk-Out Music For The NFL Draft Prospects: By The Numbers


The first round of picks for the NFL Draft had the sports world excited to see what teams the best players of college football would end up playing for. There were several surprising moments including Johnny Manziel‘s path towards the Cleveland Browns and more.

We also noticed that the majority of the players’ walk-out music was dominated by hip-hop. The sounds of R. Kelly, Ace Hood, Migos, Jeezy, J. Cole, Pharrell and more accompanied each player as they appeared on stage at the Radio City Music Hall. However, Drake, Kanye West & Lil Wayne were the most played during their walk-outs.
