But despite the lip service, it would be difficult for a sponsor to actually give up on the NFL’s power as a marketing machine. An average of 17.4 million people tune in during a regular season NFL game, about 65 per cent men and 35 per cent women, according to Nielsen.

In the days leading up to the draft, a preliminary call has already been made, so each side knows what to expect. If the team holding the higher pick is ready to move down, the deal is made..
