The Best Part of Last Weeks Draft Was Getting to See NFL Teams’ Front Office Personnel at Home With Their Families
Last week, for the first time ever in history, the NFL draft was done virtually. Meaning head coaches, general managers, and other front office personnel made their draft picks from the comfort of their own homes.
And as a result, not only did we get to see hopeful athletes’ dreams come true, but we also got to see coaches, managers, and owners enjoying this special time with their children and families sitting next to them.
New York Jets – Adam Gase
As it turns out, one of Gase’s young sons can solve a Rubik’s Cube before the NFL finished the third round of the draft.
Minnesota Vikings – Mike Zimmer
While making picks with the women in his life standing proudly behind him, football fans also learned that Zimmer has quite the taste in animal head decor.
Oakland Raiders – Jon Gruden
Gruden clearly has a supportive bunch of family members and fans got to see that first hand. Something they also got to see first hand, his draft board. Yikes.
Houston Texans – Bill O’Brien
At one point in the draft, O’Brien was not happy with whatever was going on on the other end of the phone, but that didn’t seem to phase one of his son’s one bit.
Buffalo Bills – Sean McDermott
McDermott and his son were very relaxed during the third round of the Draft. So relaxed, that as Bradley Gelber pointed out, he almost looked like a viewer.
Tennessee Titans – Mike Vrabel
Welp, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we have very few to explain what is going on in this screenshot of Vrabel’s makeshift draft room. But it looks like Vrabel and his kids sure know how to have some fun!
New England Patriots – Bill Belichick and Nick Caserio
While Caserio was surrounded by his little ones, Belichick was nowhere to be found. Who could be found in Belichick’s makeshift draft him was his doggo Nike. And it was Nike who ended up making this particular pick for the Patriots. He got a treat for a job well done.
Green Bay Packers – Matt LeFleur
Well, Yahoo! Sports pretty much summed up this screen shot, but how cute are LeFleur’s kiddos.
Miami Dolphins – Brian Flores
You know who was very excited to be next to their dad on draft day, Flores’ sons. And one of them was also pretty stoked to see himself on TV as well.
San Fransisco 49ers – Kyle Shanahan
Fans got to see Shanahan and his family more before the draft than during when he gave 49ers a tour of his home, which revealed his kids homeschooling during stay-at-home orders and the run down of his set up for the draft.
Baltimore Ravens – Eric DeCosta
How sweet was DeCosta’s children’s reaction to the Ravens drafting linebacker Patrick Queen? As soon as DeCosta sealed the deal with Queen, he celebrated with a hug from his three kids! Is anyone else’s heart melting?
New Orlean Saints – Sean Payton
When it comes to doing what you love, it has to make it 10-times better doing it next to someone you love, like your kids!
