The movie centers around the NFL draft at Radio City Music Hall and the preparation (and drama) leading up to it. Weaver and the rest of the Browns front office and coaching staff try to acquire the number one overall pick and draft the player who will save football in Cleveland.

"Draft Day" also stars Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Frank Langella, Terry Crews and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. There's also a appearance by Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (as fictional top prospect Ray Jennings) and has cameo appearances from a variety of ESPN and NFL netqork hosts and analysts, including Chris Berman, Jon Gruden, Mike Mayock, Deion Sanders and Rich Eisen.

The movie won't hit theaters until April 11, but you can watch the official trailer below. (App users can watch the video at http://youtu.be/K3SlVsdUuBY.)
