For the very first time in franchise history, the New York Giants intend to allow a live NFL Network camera into their "war room" during the 2014 NFL Draft.
The Giants will be one of 16 teams to allow a live camera in their "war room," joining the Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks as part of NFL Network's 51 hours of live draft coverage.
This sort of unprecedented coverage will allow fans to get an inside view of how the team prepares for the draft and the hectic nature of the decision to make picks/agree on trades. At the same time, it's also a drastic shift in organizational secrecy — something far outside the norm for Big Blue, who are generally a team who like to keep a tight and private lid on all things.
Don't expect to hear any inside information or to see a draft board, however. For obvious reasons, that level of insider information is hidden and would only be seen/heard by accident.
The real question is, with their new, leaner stance on privacy, might the Giants end up doing HBO's "Hard Knocks" after all?
