ESPN The Magazine Presents The 6th Annual Pre-Draft Party

The best place to be last weekend to get a glimpse of your favorite football stars was ESPN The Magazine’s 6th Annual NFL Pre-Draft Party on Friday. New York City’s ESPACE housed the highly exclusive event sponsored by Svedka Vodka, Snickers, Coors Light, Muscle Milk,  and Geico and was packed wall to wall with elite personalities in the entertainment and sports worlds.

Those who graced the stunning scene included Deion Sanders, Ryan Grant of the Green Bay Packers, Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings, the Arizona Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald, Brandon Jacobs and Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants, and Michael Strahan (with girlfriend Nicole Murphy). A few of Hollywood’s own players weren’t to be left out of the festivities either. Idris Elba, Michael Ealy, Laz Alfonso, Kim Kardashian, Adrienne Bailon, Kid Cudi, Fat Joe, DJ Clue, D Woods formerly of Danity Kane, Whitney Thompson of America’s Next Top Model also made appearances.

The legendary and sexy DJ Spinderella provided the musical selections right before Brandon Jacobs introduced Fabolous to the crowd for a live performance. NFL prospects from Aaron Curry to Donald Brown surrounded the stage to get an earful of the rap star’s greatest hits.


The 2009 NFL Draft took place at Radio City Music Hall Saturday and Sunday. Newly eligible players, mostly from different colleges, were selected by teams in the league to fulfill their ultimate dream of going to the NFL.

Congratulations to those chosen!
