It’s not common for NFL fans to get a look inside their team’s draft room. Typically, only the general manager, scouts, coaches and football personnel staff are allowed in.
However, during 49ers.com’s coverage of the NFL Draft, we allowed fans to take a look inside the 49ers draft room on our Draft Central page. And if you watched NFL Network’s draft coverage, you may have noticed their cameras in several draft rooms around the league. But only a handful of teams (49ers, Packers, Eagles, Bills, Bucs) streamed the video live on their websites as well.
We would like to thank all of those Faithful fans who tuned in to watch, because 49ers.com was first in total viewership. 49ers.com received 91,600 unique visitors over the three days. The next closest team had 21,250. We also had 256,000 total streams while the next closest team had 45,450.
Thanks to everyone who was able to watch the live draft cam over the weekend. And please feel free to leave us a comment at the bottom of this post to let us know what you thought of our coverage of the draft. Tell us what you would like to see next year.
