Alliance “protect or pick” draft: All about the QBs
How often do football fans hear “It’s all about the quarterbacks?”
On Tuesday night, it absolutely will be.
The Alliance of American Football, an eight-team spring league that begins play the weekend after the Super Bowl, will stage a “protect or pick” quarterback draft, which broadcast partner CBS Sports Network will televise live from Las Vegas. Former Steelers star receiver Hines Ward, the Alliance’s head of football development, will be the host — and the biggest name in the proceedings.
