For the first time last night, the NFL allowed the prospective draft picks in attendance at Radio City Music Hall to choose the music they’d take the stage to after hearing their names called. It was hard to make out the songs at home — viewers couldn’t really hear them over the sound of applause and Chris Berman’s voice — but the league released a list of each player’s music before the draft began.

Top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, for instance, went with “The Man” by Aloe Blacc. Jake Matthews selected a piece of music from the movie Rocky. And Johnny Manziel chose “Draft Day” by Drake (which mentions him by name) because of course he did.
