‘Draft Day’ makes wrong moves

Kevin Costner plays the general manager of the Cleveland Browns. His team is struggling, and his father, the former coach, has recently died. He also just found out that his girlfriend, Ali (Jennifer Garner), is pregnant. “Draft Day” (PG-13, Lionsgate, $29.95) isn’t a sports movie so much as a procedural about backroom dealings, double-crosses and high-stakes trades. It’s about the games before the games. And if writers Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph (“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo”) had stuck to the basics — if the plot was just business — it might have worked. Extras include commentary with Joseph and Rothman and deleted scenes. Also, on Blu-ray: a “Welcome to Primetime” behind-the-scenes look at the NFL draft.
