The Patriots president and heir-to-the-throne in Foxboro co-chairs the NFL’s digital media committee and sits on the business ventures, putting him in a catbird seat amidst the uncertain future of how the league’s game’s will be distributed.

And much of this innovation falls under the younger Kraft’s purview.
