At the NFL Draft, General Manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he's willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams.
Jim White moves his family after losing his last job as a football coach. He sees that some of the students are worth starting a cross-country team and turns seven students with no hope into one of the best cross-country teams.
It's draft day in the NFL, and as General Manager of the Cleveland Browns, Sonny is forced to come up with a big move. After trading for the number one pick, Sonny has to choose between a lower-ranked linebacker with a questionable past, or a celebrated quarterback with a questionable future. All the while, Sonny is walking in the footsteps of his father, and personal complications force their way to the surface.Written by
Earl Jennings (Terry Crews) was a running back with the Cleveland Browns. However, while Crews played with four teams, he never played for the Browns, and he was a defensive lineman, rather than a running back. See more »

Saw it today (4/12/14) and liked it a lot. Kevin Costner is not as good as in Bull Durham or Field of Dreams but he is believable as the Browns GM. The draft deals he makes are so confusing I'm still trying to figure them out. But he somehow gets two first round picks and sticks it to two other teams while getting who he wants. Lots of Cleveland scenes and the Browns fans depicted in a bar are a hoot. Don't know why Jennifer Garner's character was even needed and her acting didn't cut it. Her emotional expressions are limited and becoming hackneyed. This story doesn't need a romantic side story and her inclusion didn't add anything. The Browns owner (Langella) and coach (Leary) were much better supporting players and so was Ellen Burstyn as Costner's mother (although her little subplot could have been skipped). The script is tops but story editing is so-so. All Cleveland Browns fans will like this movie.
