Are you ready for some football?  With the 2009 NFL Draft coming up, let the Hall of Fame get you geared up for the new season and experience the NFL draft a whole new way! At the Hall of Fame Draft Tailgating Party, join Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood, Rams No. 1 draft pick, in 1971 who excelled for 14 seasons with the Los Angeles Rams from 1971 to 1984.  Youngblood will share his perspective of being selected as a first round draft pick as well as tell some great stories from his incredible career. You’ll also get an “insider’s look” at the workings of an NFL war room from retired NFL scout George Saimes who spent 30-plus years as a scout in the NFL after a stellar career as a defensive back.

See the 2009 NFL Draft on a large 9’ X 12’ screen and broadcast throughout the Hall.  Enjoy Quaker Steak and Lube tailgating food, cold beverages including beer and Pepsi products!  Plus challenge your football IQ with football trivia and great NFL prizes!  Space is limited to 250 people.
