Pro’s Picks gives you an inside look at top athletes’ media choices—from their favorite movies to their can’t-live-without video games. Today, we’re featuring the selections of Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
Movies: “Wedding Crashers, Coming to America, Hangover. City of God is a good one. A lot of people don’t know about that one.” With three kids, Jones-Drew says he doesn’t have much time for new movies. “I just quote Nick Jr. [cartoons] all day,” he says.
Music: “I’m a Bay Area guy, so I always listen to all the Bay Area rappers: E-40, Mac Dre…obviously Lil Wayne is a big rapper, Young Jeezy.” Lately, Jones-Drew has been into songs with a slower tempo mixed with rap. “I’m a big fan of Drake,” he says.
Games: “I’m a video-game guy,” proclaims Jones-Drew, listing Call of Duty, NBA 2K and Madden as his favorites. “I’m still the Madden champ. Nobody’s beaten me one-on-one yet.”
