Ready to see who cancels out your vote?

You think you are. You're not.

The documentary Two Days in April follows four NFL hopefuls preparing for the draft. None of them are superstars. We watch them exercise and prepare for interviews, and then finally it's draft day. Everyone is sitting around at home with their families, watching TV and waiting for a call from a team, except for one kid. He's in a hotel room with his pastor.

Curiously, when he's later the only one of the four kids to go completely undrafted, he refuses to talk to the camera.
