Draft Day

Continuity mistake: The owner of the Cleveland Browns drives from NYC to the Teterboro Airport (12 miles from Midtown Manhattan), flies to Cleveland (450 air miles) and drives to the Browns facility (16 miles) in the time it takes the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th picks in the 1st round of the NFL draft to be made.

James T Hampton Jr.

Continuity mistake: The head of security told Sonny Weaver a story about Bo Callahan, stating he talked to Washington who had the #5 pick. But later in the movie, in a pretty important plot twist, it was Denver who had the #5 pick.

Factual error: Bo Callahan is described by an interviewer as the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner. However, the film portrays the 2014 NFL Draft (albeit a fictional version of it). The Heisman Trophy is awarded in December and the winner is always linked with the year of the season that was just played (excluding bowl games). The NFL Draft takes place in late April or early May. Therefore, the 2014 Heisman Trophy wouldn't be awarded for another 7 months. Callahan would have to have been the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner if he's the most recent recipient prior to the 2014 draft.


Character mistake: When Eli discusses with Sonny about draft picking she mentions that Tom Brady was picked by the #198 place in the draft but actually he picked by the #199 place in the NFL draft. (01:10:00 - 01:11:00)

Continuity mistake: When the owner, Anthony Molina, is going to present Bo Callahan the #1 jersey at the Browns' #1 selection, the jersey is not the color of the Cleveland Browns. It is blue. I don't recollect the Browns ever wearing a blue jersey.

Factual error: In the scene with the Buffalo GM they show outside. The draft is in April. Trees are not that green in Buffalo at this time of year.

Continuity mistake: In the first green room scene, immediately after Ray Lewis and Anthony Molina are talking about Lewis' draft, we can see a TV screen covering the draft. It says "Pick is in" at the bottom, even though the draft has not yet started. (01:11:15)

Mike Motter

Continuity mistake: When they show Bo Callahan throwing the Touchdown pass there was a halfback in the backfield #30. However, when Sonny asks them to replay it and asks what was different (no Vontae Mack) it is pointed out that there was no halfback the backfield, #30 disappeared. Then Sonny asks where Donta was. He had been ejected.

Continuity mistake: When Bo's agent gets the call from Sonny at the draft, his profile picture on the agent's phone is Cleveland Browns. However, when the agent hands the phone to Beau it is a generic contact with no photo attached to Sonny.

Continuity mistake: The movie depicts one day, Draft Day in the NFL, and begins in the morning with GM Sonny Weaver, Jr. at home getting dressed for the day, and scenes follow Sonny as the day unfolds. Most scenes in the movie show a ticketing clock counting down to the actual draft picks which take place in the evening later that same day. In order of when they appear in the movie: first there's a water park scene with the clock showing 11:09, then two scenes later, it shows 9:39, then in a following scene it's 10:19. It doesn't appear that the water park scene is a flashback where Sonny is thinking about what happened at the water park. Clearly the water park scene is out of order of occurrence and/or the water park scene clock is wrong.


Sonny Weaver Jr.: Come on, Tom. Say it with me, you pancake-eating motherfucker.
