NFL will 'enhance' security at draft in wake of bombing

In the wake of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the NFL is on high alert for next week's 2013 NFL Draft. The league said in a statement Tuesday that it will "enhance" security plans for the event.

"The NFL and its clubs have operated with a very high level of security since 9/11 for all of our games and events. For next week's NFL draft, we will review and enhance our already comprehensive security plans with the NYPD, Radio City and our private security partners. We will advise the public more specifically next week prior to the draft," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement.

The league released a similar statement in regard to Super Bowl security to the Sports Business Journal. The NFL draft already is an extremely secure event, and the events of this week only will serve to heighten awareness.
