Are you both a fan of the NFL and premium cable epic fantasy serials? All caught up on Game of Thrones, but not familiar with some of the names your favorite football team is targeting in Thursday’s NFL draft?

Well, Now This News has you covered.

It’s obvious that Game of Thrones has implications in football. Just on Tuesday, book series author George R.R. Martin was lamenting his Jets’ trade of Darrelle Revis. Like everyone else, Martin is learning that “It’s hard to be a fan of the New York Jets.”

However, the folks at Now This News have taken the crossover a bit further, putting together a video primer that puts Game of Thrones counterparts to some of this year’s potential NFL draftees in what they call “Draft of Thrones.” Does Manti Te’o have something in common with Eddard Stark? What about the diminutive Tavon Austin and little person Tyrion Lannister?

Check out all the fun in the video below.
