NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The first round of the NFL draft will take place on Thursday night in Chicago.
It’s the first time since 1963 that the draft won’t be held in New York City. The last nine events were hosted at Radio City Music Hall.
So with the draft shifting from the Big Apple to the Windy City, Chicago television station WGN-TV Channel 9 decided to mock Jets fans and their tradition of booing the team’s first-round pick.
In the clip, “Jets fans” in Chicago criticize everything in sight and lead ridiculous chants throughout the city. There are also some entertaining Q and A sessions with locals.
Some New Yorkers will appreciate it; others won’t be too pleased.
The Jets will pick sixth in the first round. They badly need a quarterback, and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota might be on the table, but general manager Mike Maccagnan has indicated that he’s keeping his options open.
