NEW YORK -- You might have heard that NFL prospects, for the first time ever, will have walk-up music as they take the Radio City Music Hall stage at tonight's draft.
This is one of those ideas that you can't believe someone didn't come up with sooner. This is the greatest moment of these young guys' lives, so why wouldn't you have them soundtrack it?
You'll find below the choice of each prospect. I leaned on NFL Media editor and newsroom hip-hop enthusiast David Ely for instant reaction.
Odell Beckham Jr.
" The Sky's The Limit" - Lil Wayne
Ely's take: I like that he went local, and this should only help Lil Wayne's resurgence. Bonus points for having "Young Money, Cash Money" in Line 2.
"Blow Up" - J. Cole
"The World's Greatest" - R. Kelly
Ely's take: LOVE THIS. Big statement from Bridgewater, who doesn't normally flash bravado.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
"Never Would Have Made It" - Marvin Sapp
"The Man" - Aloe Blacc
Note: This is the same song from that weird Colin Kaepernick commercial where crazed fans are attacking his team bus.
Brandin Cooks and Ryan Shazier
" Everythang" - Young Jeezy
Sample lyric: "I used to have nothin'/ but now I got a whole lot of everythang / and I come through stuntin'/ and now the whole world gon' know/ my name"
Ely's take: Money should be the theme of any draft song. Young Jeezy gets it, so does Brandin Cooks. Now the whole world will know his name.
"Money Baby" - K Camp
"They Don't Love You No More" - DJ Khaled
Ely's take: I don't really get it. He's getting drafted. HE JUST GOT ENGAGED. Who is it that don't love you no more, Eric?
"Trophies" - Young Money feat. Drake
Kyle Fuller and Ra'Shede Hageman
"We Made It" - Drake feat. Soulja Boy
"Good Life" - Kanye West feat. T-Pain
Note: "Graduation" is a masterpiece.
"We Dem Boyz" - Wiz Khalifa
Ely's take: If Gilbert goes to the CB-needy Steelers, then he should audible for "Black and Yellow."
"Radioactive" - Imagine Dragons
Ely's take: Odd choice considering his pre-draft questions.
"Everyday" - Ace Hood
"Handsome & Wealthy" - Migos
Note: A little on the nose, Marqise.
"Rock City" - Kings Of Leon
Khalil Mack & Greg Robinson
"Happy" - Pharrell Williams
Note: Makes perfect sense that the song you can't escape from would follow us to Radio City Music Hall.
" Draft Day" - Drake
Sample lyric: "Draft day, Johnny Manziel, Five years later how am I the man still?"
He picks a song with his own name dropped in the first line! JFF!
"Going The Distance" - Bill Conti
Note: Yup, the "Rocky" song.
"Through The Wire" - Kanye West
"Sideline Story" - J. Cole
"My Favorite Song" - Wiz Khalifa
"Dreams & Nightmares" - Meek Mill
"Believe Me" - Drake feat. Lil Wayne
"Icy" - Gucci Mane
"Look What You've Done" - Drake
Note: Drake is outrageously beloved.
