NFL Draft Walkup Music Selections Revealed, And Jake Matthews Has Already Won

  • Rick Chandler

As we learned on Wednesday, the top players chosen in the NFL Draft will have walkup music. This would be great news if athletes below the age of 23 had diverse musical tastes, and weren’t pop hip hop clones. (Old writer alert!). Anyway, as expected, Drake leads the field with three selections “Trophies”, “We Made It” and “Draft Day”, with J. Cole earning two, and the usual suspects rounding out the field.

The exception? Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews picked “Going the Distance” by Bill Conti, the composer who wrote “Gonna Fly Now” for the “Rocky” movies. Wonder if Matthews, who maybe is going to the New York Giants, is aware that Conti went to LSU, and is still a big Tigers fan?

Anyway, the music is sure to stand out among all the other hip hop kiddie tunes. Can’t wait to see the reaction.

Here’s the lineup:

Odell Beckham Jr., The Sky’s The Limit (Lil Wayne)
