Futuristic Hats with Light-Sensitive Brims are Coming to the NFL Draft

Monday April 28th, 2014

Jadeveon Clowney, Greg Robinson, Sammy Watkins could be the top three picks in the upcoming NFL draft.

But more importantly, they could be the first three guys to don the stylish New Era hats seen above.

Get this: The logo/lettering on the brims will only show up when exposed to sunlight (which won't happen inside Radio City Music Hall) or camera flashes (which is 100 percent assured), according to Fox Sports.

Otherwise, the brim will just be gray.

It's sort of a metaphor for the draft (unofficially, at least) — teams drafting at the top had gray seasons last year, but the draft provides a ray of sunshine for them and their fans, with the spotlight being on their new studs.
