On the clock

An important part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s mission is to preserve the history of the game. Found deep in the Hall’s archives is the clock used by the National Football League during the annual player draft from 1995-2012. The clock, which counted down the amount of time remaining in each team’s draft slot, is 4½’ x 5½’ and hung above the NFL’s draft stage at Madison Square Garden (1995-2004), the Javits Convention Center (2005) and Radio City Music Hall (2006-12). The clock posted the official time for 4,550 players selected during those drafts.
