The first round of the 2020 NFL Draft will take place in Las Vegas and if you’re going to be on the Las Vegas Strip looking for somewhere to party with other football fans, Pro Football Network has you covered. On Thursday, April 23 during the first round of the NFL Draft, we will be hosting a Live Draft Show at the MGM Grand Conference Center from 4-9 PM PST, which includes a 5-hour top-shelf open bar and a 2-hour three-course buffet. Also, we’ll be joined by Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby and Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams. They will take part in a fireside chat, analyze the Raiders and Dolphins’ first pick of the night, respectively, and mingle with the crowd.
*Coronavirus Update: Please note that if domestic travel is banned during the week of the NFL Draft, we will provide a full ticket refund.
The PFN Live Draft Show will feature PFN Draft Analysts and Insiders Tony Pauline, Ben Allbright, and Andy Herman. With Allbright bringing the inside scoop leading up to and during the first round of the 85th NFL Draft, Pauline and Herman will provide commentary and analysis for every first-round selection while the NFL Draft is broadcast live on a large projection screen.
Even better? We have a room that is thousands of square feet and we’re only limiting the PFN Live Draft Show to 200 people. That means you don’t have to fight any large crowds that will surely be present at every bar and restaurant on the Strip. You’ll be able to enjoy the first round of the NFL Draft while getting all the drinks and food you want without waiting.
Speaking of drinks and food, we’re going to have a 5-hour top-shelf open bar and a 2-hour three-course buffet. Taking all of that into consideration, this is one live draft party you are not going to want to miss!
Special Appearance by Las Vegas Raiders DE Maxx Crosby and Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams
‘Mad’ Maxx Crosby, a fourth-round pick who made quite the impact for the Raiders in 2019, is headed into 2020 primed for a star-studded year. But before that happens, he’ll be joining Pro Football Network in Las Vegas. Last season, he racked up 47 total tackles and sacked the opposing quarterback 10 times. In addition, he forced 4 fumbles. Raiders GM Mike Mayock described Crosby as someone with “a relentless pursuit during every snap.”
Joining Crosby will be Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams. Although he was an undrafted rookie free agent, he burst onto the scene in his rookie year and quickly became a fan favorite for Dolphins fans across the world. Known as “The Glitch” for his acrobatic catches and athletic ability, Williams racked up 428 receiving yards and three touchdowns before suffering a season-ending injury in Week 9. Heading into the 2020 season, he is set to continue to be a big part of the Dolphins offense as he looks to build on a strong rookie season.
At the PFN Live Draft Show, Crosby and Williams will take part in a fireside chat hosted by Allbright. And right before the Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins are on the clock for their first pick of the evening, Crosby and Williams will join the analysts on stage and talk about the newest member of their team as soon as the selection is made.
Before and after those moments, Crosby, Williams will mingle with the crowd and chat it up for Raiders, Dolphins and NFL fans who are in attendance.
