New Orleans Saints' season ticket member, Leroy Mitchellof New Orleans, will receive the ultimate 2014 NFL Draft experience courtesy of The Membership Club, an NFL league-wide benefits program.
"I never envisioned anything like this in my life," Mitchell said. "It's brand new for me. I'm always thinking of the whole team and the whole fan base and or me to go and represent, it eclipses anything I have ever imagined as far as Saints and football. It's like me winning the Super Bowl."
For the first time, 24 season ticket members will get behind the scenes access to the NFL Draft. Hand-picked by the Saints, Mitchell, a 20-year season ticket member also affectionately known as the "Whistle Monsta," will help kick off the Draft first round festivities on Thursday, May 8 in New York City.
Adorned in custom New Orleans Saints jersey with "Draft Day" on the nameplate, Mitchell will walk the Red Carpet with other season ticket members from around the league and hand deliver the 2014 New Era Draft Caps into Radio City Music Hall.
The V.I.P. access continues once in venue when Mitchell and the other season ticket members get the chance to hand NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a customized No. 1 Nike jersey from backstage as picks are announced.
V.I.P. seating during round one for season ticket members and their guest, two tickets to Day 2 and a tour of Radio City Music Hall top off the three-day NFL Draft experience.
