The 2019 NFL Draft is just a few weeks ago, so New Era Caps has decided to unveil their brand new set of draft hats for the incoming rookies. Every year, the draft caps are a talking point on draft night and that should once again be the case with the hats being bolder than ever.
For the 2019 draft, New Era has drawn inspiration by each team’s local flag.
“This idea as we go through to celebrate the past of the NFL and innovation of where it’s moving, we really wanted to start with where the game began within each local community,” Ryan DiNunzio, New Era’s director of football, said, via Sports Illustrated.
“It’s a unique way to say this is where we started, this is who we are, this is what we’re about, this is the community we represent. At the same time it tells a separate story of welcoming a new member into that community. Really trying to tell this message of this is where we’re going, this is who we represent and welcome into the community.”
My personal favorites are Carolina, Pittsburgh, Miami, Dallas, New England, Tennessee, and the Los Angeles Rams.
All hats officially went on sale at 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, April 2.
The only team not to give an early look at their draft cap is the New York Jets, who are set to unveil their new uniforms on Thursday, April 4.
The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville earned the honor of hosting the 84th annual player selection over cities Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Cleveland/Canton.
