The most hotly anticipated draft in years is almost upon us and just when you think the event can't possibly get more exciting, the NFL add a further embellishment. This year, for the first time ever NFL draftees will be able to choose the music to which they walk onto the stage to.

It's always a special moment to step on the stage and shake the commissioner's hand to join the NFL but now according to Rich Eisen, that moment is about to get even more special.

Eisen of NFL Network tweeted today: "For the first time ever, draftees have chosen the music that plays over speakers as they walk to the stage in Radio City Music Hall."

This seems like it could be an interesting addition to the event but I'm not sure how far the NFL want to go with this. Are they going to allow sixth and seventh round picks to have their favorite anthems blaring out late on Saturday?

Which song do you pick for the 256th overall pick? I think it's probably a nailed on certainty that Johnny Manziel chooses a Drake song of some description, the two are very close after all.

It's also pretty likely that Aloe Blacc's "I'm the man" makes an appearance once or twice.

If nothing else, this wrinkle will make the draft a little more fun as the names get less and less recognizable. The NFL sure know their audience.
