This marks the 9th straight year of coverage of the NFL’s Annual Player Selection Meeting by Zennie Abraham, first as the SBS NFL Business Blog, then as Zennie62Media, starting in 2010. Zennie Abraham has taken his combination of knowledge of digital media, computer programmin and economic analysis, and experience in politics and economic development, and interest in consumer technology and combined all of them to give rise to Zennie62Media.
Mr. Abraham’s first draft was in 2005 and then he was the first YouTube Channel owner to cover the NFL Draft with videos, starting in 2006 (just go to YouTube and search for “nfl draft” and “2006” and scroll down to see). And for each year, Zennie has used the latest digital media and social media technology and approaches to bring you the NFL Draft, using tech that in many cases wasn’t known to the general public, but later became widely used.
Here’s a selection of Zennie62 on YouTube videos from the 2006 NFL Draft:
Zennie Abraham’s firsts include: first online account of what it’s like at the NFL Draft (2005), first YouTube Channel (2006), first to use livestream to cover the NFL Draft, partnering with USTREAM (2007), first to cause NFL to incorporate social media rules covering the NFL Draft (2008), first to bring integrated multi-media platform approach to NFL Draft Coverage (2009), first to incorporate multi-media coverage sponsor in NFL Draft Coverage (2010), and first to have largest library of original NFL Draft videos on YouTube (2011). In short, Zennie62Media has set the standard for new media coverage and consistent content creation, marketing, and distribution related to the NFL Draft.
