Plot Synopsis

This one-hour reality series reveals how a group of NFL prospects train and prepare for the NFL Scouting Combine, their individual Pro Days, and ultimately, the NFL Draft. Season 1 featured these five NFL hopefuls: projected first-round picks Blake Bortles, Jadeveon Clowney and Marqise Lee; Pierre Desir, the nation's top small college defensive player; and Bishop Sankey, a first team All-Pac-12 selection at running back.
On Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 7pm ET/4pm PT, ESPN premiered the second season of DRAFT ACADEMY, featuring a new group of prospects: Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and potential No. 1 overall pick; Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon, the 2014 Doak Walker Award winner and Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year; Georgia running back Todd Gurley, one of the top players entering the 2014 season who is recovering from a knee injury in hopes of becoming a first round pick; Missouri defensive end Shane Ray, the 2014 SEC Defensive Player of the Year; Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith of the National Champion Buckeyes; and North Dakota State running back John Crockett, who ran for more than 4,000 career yards in his three college seasons.
