Second only to the Super Bowl, the NFL draft is the league's most watched annual event, and round one will begin tonight where the Los Angeles Rams -- it's still weird to say that -- will be on the clock first. To celebrate the big weekend ahead for football fans, EA Sports is letting anyone with an Xbox LIVE Gold membership play Madden NFL 16
on Xbox One for free until the end of Monday, 11:59 pm ET.
Madden NFL 16 is the long-running series' highest rated entry in five years according to Metacritic, and focuses on improving mechanics surrounding the receiving game.
If you're interested in playing it after the Free Play Days promo has ended, it's also a part of this week's Deals with Gold
, and is among the several titles that come with an EA Access
subscription. On a related note, which prospects are you hoping join your favorite team this weekend?
