The second weekend of Coachella is set to get into full swing Friday night. Fans of Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Radiohead, Travis Scott and many more acts will brave 100-degree temperatures to see their favorite artists perform. Veterans will tell you that with whom you go to Coachella is just as important as the acts you're shelling out hundreds of dollars to see. Your chemistry has to be on point; everyone should know his or her role within the group.
Who's going to make sure everyone on social media knows you're having the most amazing time ever? Who's going to make sure you don't die of starvation and dehydration? Who's going to make sure drunk Coachella bros don't try to start fights with you? Find out the answers to all of those and more in the NFL Coachella crew guide.
Cam Newton: The Fashionisto
Odell Beckham Jr.: The Dancing Machine
Speaking of dancing, there's no one more prepared for Coachella than Mr. 24/7 Dance Party himself. If you follow OBJ on social media, you'll know that he's always up on the latest releases and has more than a few moves for each hit song. He's also friends with various celebs so, who knows, maybe Drake will join the party.
Rob Gronkowski: 24/7 Rager
Every Coachella crew needs the non-stop rager, the person who keeps the party going well into the early morning, even when some people are coming down off their, uh, caffeine high. Gronk is the man for the job. We're talking about the same guy who raged on his own cruise for days. Also, he has some WWE skills so he can double as security for the group. Just don't tell Belichick.
Eli Apple: The Chef
Now, this pick may seem like a wild card. Is Annie Apple serving as a chaperone? No. Eli gets to join because of his culinary skills. When Eli was a draft prospect, it was rumored that he had "no life skills" and "couldn't cook." However, a few people came to his defense and revealed that the cornerback could in fact cook.
"Eli's got great cooking skills," Braxton Miller told Newsday. "He threw down (at a) big barbecue. He's got skills. I don't know what they're talking about... He had it all."
So, in order to avoid living off Pop-Tarts or $10 hot dogs that have been sitting in dirty water for hours, you should bring Eli along. Plus, if you get lost in the desert and there's no one else to come rescue you, you know that Mrs. Apple will be there.
