Before taking in a special advance screening of the football drama Draft Day starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner, San Diego Chargers players Donald Butler, Brandon Taylor, and Nick Novak joined running backs coach Ollie Wilson, assistant offensive line coach Andrew Dees, and Chargers cheerleaders on the red carpet to talk about football and movies. The football players and coaches were definitely more comfortable handling the questions about all-things football (including whether the Chargers will make it to the 2015 Super Bowl) but gamely attempted to come up with answers to some sports movie-related questions.
The Plot of Draft Day – Opening in Theaters on April 11, 2014:
