AOL to Debut NFL Docu-Series ‘Journey to the Draft’ from Deion Sanders

AOL, adding to its lineup of unscripted fare, will next week premiere “Journey to the Draft,” a 10-part docu-series from Deion Sanders about three college football players striving to make it into the National Football League.

“Journey to the Draft” follows Kevin White (pictured above), Leonard Williams and Marcus Peters as they prepare for the 2015 NFL draft, which starts April 30. Sanders, a former NFL player and hall-of-famer, serves as executive producer and narrator for the series.

AOL will release nine episodes of the series for binge-watching on April 28, followed by the finale on May 6 (after the NFL draft has concluded) for 10 episodes total. “Journey to the Draft” will be available on AOL’s website.

“‘Journey to the Draft’ brings viewers behind the scenes and shows them the emotion and intensity the players experience,” said Dermot McCormack, president of AOL Video and AOL Studios. “In every episode, we will take viewers inside the plays and politics, the locker rooms, press rooms and dorm rooms like never before.”

White, from Plainfield, N.J., is a wide receiver who became a breakout star of the 2014 college football season as a starter at West Virginia U. He finished the season with 109 receptions, 1,447 yards and 10 touchdowns, and was a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award for the most outstanding receiver in college football.

Florida native Williams, considered one of the top candidates in the 2015 NFL draft, played defensive end at U. of Southern California. In 2012, he was named Pac-12 defensive freshman of the year.

Peters, named to NFL.com’s Midseason All-American team, was a star cornerback a U. of Washington. But he was dismissed from the team last November after arguing with the team’s assistant coaches.

The show concept was created by Relativity Sports, which represents the three athletes featured in the docu-series. “Journey to the Draft” is produced for AOL by Relativity Television and Relativity Sports. Executive producers are Deion Sanders, Tom Forman, Happy Walters, Adam Alcabes, Brad Bishop and Adam Fisher.
