Better Know a Movie: Two Days in April



It's hard to imagine that a documentary would be a must-see for the Franchise, but if any documentary fits the bill, it's this particular film, which tracks four NFL draft hopefuls from the end of their senior season to the NFL Draft. Thankfully, I did not recognize any of the four athletes profiled: Derek Hagan, Clint Ingram, Travis Wilson and DonTrell Moore, which allowed me to take the roller coaster ride of emotions along with the athletes. The film's substance is provided by the behind the scenes entre it grants viewers into the meat market environment of the pre-senior bowl draft prep camps, the senior bowl practices and games, the combine, and the anxious pre-draft wait, but what gives it its edge is how the film beautifully tracks the emotions of the prospects and their families and friends, as the names come off the board. It is a must-watch for NFL Draft fans.

Hadn't heard of it, but sounds like a good one.

I also did not know about this film, but I'll be seeing it soon, believe me!

Also, Derek Hagan was actually pretty good in college, and may still turn out to be a decent pro if the Dolphins get their act together.
