Dolphins To Be Well Represented At NFL Draft

Posted May 7, 2014

Season Ticket Members, alumnus will play role in Dolphins draft in New York.

Two longtime Season Ticket Members and a Dolphins Hall of Famer will represent the Miami Dolphins at the NFL draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City from May 8-10.

Season Ticket Member Susan (Susie) Eisenberg will receive the ultimate 2014 NFL draft experience courtesy of The Membership Club, an NFL league-wide benefits program. A Season Ticket Member for more than 20 seasons, Eisenberg first became a Dolphins fan during her freshman year in high school in 1973. Fans can follower her on Twitter (@miamidolphinsue) for behind the scene photos from the NFL draft.

Eisenberg is one of 24 Season Ticket Members throughout the NFL who will get behind-the-scenes access to the NFL draft. Handpicked by the Dolphins, Eisenberg will help kick off the draft's first-round festivities on Thursday, May 8 in New York City. Adorned in a custom Miami Dolphins jersey with “Draft Day” on the back, she will walk the Red Carpet with other Season Ticket Members from around the league and hand-deliver the 2014 New Era draft caps into Radio City Music Hall. The VIP access continues when Eisenberg and the other Season Ticket Members get the chance to hand NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a customized No. 1 Nike jersey from backstage as picks are announced. VIP seating during Round 1 for Season Ticket Members and their guest, two tickets to Day 2 and a tour of Radio City Music Hall top off the three-day NFL draft experience. Full Season Ticket Members, club seat holders or suite owners from all 32 clubs are automatically part of The Membership Club.

The Dolphins again will be represented by Hall of Fame guard Larry Little, who will announce the team's selection in the second round. This marks the fourth consecutive year a Dolphins alumnus has announced a selection on behalf of the team. Little also did the honors in 2013 when he announced the Dolphins' selection of Boise State defensive back Jamar Taylor with the 54th overall selection. The other Dolphins alumni who have announced selections at the NFL draft since the league began the tradition of having notable alumni from each franchise announce picks in certain rounds in 2011 were Hall of Fame center Dwight Stephenson in 2012 and former defensive back Sam Madison in 2011.

A Season Ticket Member since 1997 and inaugural member of the Fin Club since its creation in 2012, Robert Burns won the opportunity to announce this year’s fourth-round draft choice, currently slated to be the 16th pick of the round and the 116th overall selection, at Radio City Music Hall. Burns was randomly selected in a drawing earlier this month.

The Fin Club is a loyalty rewards program designed for Miami Dolphins fans. Members earn points redeemable for exclusive rewards and VIP experiences.

In 2013, Season Ticket Member Giovanni Estevez from Miramar got his once-in-a-lifetime NFL draft experience at Radio City Music Hall, culminating with the announcement of University of Florida linebacker Jelani Jenkins, who was selected with the 104th overall pick. In 2012, Nina Smith traveled to New York to announce Lamar Miller as the team’s fourth-round draft pick as the 97th overall selection, while in 2011, Dolphins Special Teams volunteer Ron Hatchett was on hand to announce the selection of Clyde Gates, who the team selected in the fourth round with the 111th overall selection.
