NEW YORK (PIX11) — The NFL says it will have extra security at this year’s draft.

The 3-day event begins Wednesday night at Radio City Music Hall.

A league spokesman says there will be increased screening procedures in response to last week’s Boston marathon bombings.

He says there will be pat-downs and other security checks. Anyone who declines such checks will not be allowed in the building.
