Thursday night, fans around the Northland gathered to watch one of the most anticipated nights in sports.

The NFL draft brought crowds out to Players Sports Bar in Duluth to anxiously wait and see what new faces would be wearing Vikings purple come this fall.

“It kind of gets the season going again,” said Rick McArthur, Owner of Players Sports Bar. “Hockey playoffs are going on, so you’re still excited about that, but football’s where it’s at, everybody knows that’s the biggest spectator sport around in this area anyways.”

The 2015 draft was hosted in Chicago.
