With the first overall selection in the 2013 NFL Entry Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select.. Leon Sandcastle?
The NFL Network debuted its Super Bowl XLVII commercial to promote the upcoming NFL Draft by dressing up a very familiar face, and it looks like Prime Time still has some gas left in the tank.
Pro Football Hall of Famer and NFL studio analyst Deion Sanders donned a furry mustache and phony wig as he fooled a handful of scouts to move his way up to the number one pick. (Sorry, Luke Joeckel.)
Will Andy Reid take a chance on him?
Okay, that's my second favorite commercial of the night...Leon Sandcastle...nicely done...Goodell w a sense of humor too!

I think the entire #NFLDraft community was just won over by that Leon Sandcastle commercial. My timeline lit up.

Have to admit, I was disappointed Leon Sandcastle chose not to play in the Senior Bowl. Still likely to go #1 overall.

CLICK HERE to see the rest of the 2013 Super Bowl commercials as well as all of the best, worst and most unforgettable from the past.
As the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battled for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers competed for another prize: your attention. Each time that CBS cut away from Super Bowl XLVII to pay the bills (or because the lights went out), another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers were unveiled (although many had been teased). At your Super Bowl party, were people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?
While memorable Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Snickers' spot that featured Betty White will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails. Will this ad make this year's best list? Is it controversial? Or, even worse, destined to be forgotten?
