Drake, Future and More Included in List of 2018 NFL Draft Walk-Up Songs
A select group of college kids are going to turn their dream into a reality when they hear their name called during the first round of the NFL Draft later tonight. Each of the 22 prospects that accepted the invite to Dallas has the opportunity to choose a walk-up song if that moment comes, and unsurprisingly, a lot of those songs picked are by some big hip-hop artists.
The players' selections this year include a diverse collection of rappers including Drake, Logic, Lil Baby, Future, Post Malone, Ace Hood, The Notorious B.I.G., Meek Mill and many more.
Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, who is expected to go in the top five, taps fellow rising Bronx native A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's "No Promises" as his soundtrack to the night.
Another highly touted player that should come off the board fairly quickly is North Carolina State's prolific edge rusher Bradley Chubb. The N.C. State sack record holder is going with the soothing "200" off of Future and Young Thug's joint project Super Slimey.
Lamar Jackson is the only quarterback to go with hip-hop as his genre of choice. The polarizing Louisville product is expected to go in the first round. The Heisman Trophy winner enlists the Zaytoven-produced "No Basic" from Future's classic Beast Mode 2015 mixtape.
Drake was also a popular selection by prospects with a few selecting 2018 hit "God's Plan," as others went with "Glow," More Life's "Do Not Disturb" and "How Bout Now" instead from the 6 God's illustrated discography
The NFL Draft kicks off at 8 PM EST Thursday night (April 26) on ESPN. Make sure to tune in and keep your ear open to get your hip-hop fix for the night.
