NFL Draft 2013: San Francisco 49ers Will Not Have Cameras in Their Draft Room


The San Francisco 49ers are known as being one of the more protective franchises in the league, always doing things in secrecy and not revealing much to the media.

So, it’s no surprise that they turned down an invitation from the NFL Network to have a camera in their draft room later this week, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. 

Fifteen teams have allowed cameras to record their every move during the draft, including the other three teams from the NFC West.

Personally, I agree with this move. Why should they show the world what they do during the draft? There isn’t a need for that, and I don’t believe watching a bunch of men in suits siting around a table really enhances the fan experience.

    The only people I want in my draft room are my staff.
    The NFL said they will ban all people from Tweeting the picks. It seems that some of the people that work for the NFL production of the Draft were tweeting teams choices to the public before Roger Goodell could announce them at the podium thus ruining the surprise.
