The draft order will be randomly selected and posted on NFFL.com no later than August 17, 2013. “We’re going to have a better quality of video this year. I’m not sure if Mason was drowsy or hitting the milk, but this one’ll be purely professional,” said NFFL.com IT Director William “Thin Crust” Kristoph.
