Motor City legend Eminem is expected to make an appearance at the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit, set to take place at Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza from April 25th to April 27th.

What is the NFL Draft?
It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like — it’s when the 32 teams of the NFL choose their newest players from the latest generation of football phenoms.

When is the NFL Draft?
Officially, it starts April 25 at noon and runs through 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. But you can find draft-themed attractions and events before and after. The NFL shop, for example, located at 1001 Woodward Ave., opens for business April 20 at 10 a.m. It’ll run for four days before opening again April 25. Round one of draft picks begins at 8 p.m. The second and third round begins at 7 p.m. on April 26. Rounds four through seven start at noon on April 27.

When are the Lions up in the draft?
The Lions have seven total picks, including the 29th overall pick in the first round. From there, it’s No. 61 in Round 2, No. 73 in Round 3 (which they got from the Minnesota Vikings), No. 164 in Round 5, No. 201 (from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and No. 205 in Round 6, and No. 249 in Round 7. These can change, though. Teams can trade at any time, including during the draft itself.

Will there be entertainment?
Yes! Detroit native Big Sean will headline a series of free concerts tied to the NFL Draft. And Motor City’s beloved Detroit Youth Choir also will perform, along with Canton-raised singer Bazzi. The concerts will be held on the Draft Theater stage and are standing room only, and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

What kind of food will be available at the NFL Draft?
No matter what you like to eat, you will probably be able to find something at the “Taste of the Town” tailgate. A small collection of the many local restaurants featured, according to the NFL

  • Waka by Baobab Fare
  • Detroit 75 Kitchen
  • Haraz Coffee House
  • Mom’s Spaghetti (yes, this is Eminem ‘s restaurant)
  • El Parian Taco
  • Louisiana Creole Gumbo
  • Kuzzo’s Chicken and Waffle
  • Bangkok 96 Street Food
