ESPN's Bill Parcells NFL Draft Special

From ESPN -


Two days before the NFL Draft, ESPN will present SportsCenter Special: Bill Parcells Draft Confidential, a unique 90-minute program Tuesday, April 26, at 9:30 p.m. that will take fans inside the draft war room of longtime front office executive and two-time Super Bowl-winning head coach Bill Parcells. The 30-year NFL veteran, who has a history of rebuilding franchises through the draft, will share his secrets, philosophies and inside knowledge on how the Draft works.  Parcells will discuss each position, how prospects are graded -- including players in the 2011 class -- and reveal how trades are made and what actually goes on behind the scenes on Draft day. Monday Night Football play-by-play voice Mike Tirico hosts.  





Parcells on Draft Confidential:

"There's going to be a lot of information in this show that is unfamiliar to the average fan. I am hopeful the show will provide insights into how difficult it is to draft successfully on a consistent basis, and fans should also come away with a lot better understanding of how the draft board got to be the draft board.
"I'm prepared to talk about the players in this year's Draft. I know the strengths of the class, and I know the quarterbacks well. None of the quarterbacks are 'can't miss' prospects. There are certain attributes that some of these guys possess that aren't evident to the naked eye. Some of the attributes will carry them forward to a successful career and some will be prohibitive to that happening."
