NEW YORK — The NFL is increasing security for this week’s draft at Radio City Music Hall, with everyone subject to screenings, including use of metal detectors and pat-downs, and searches of personal property.

Even league officials, players and their families will be subject to such measures. The league said that spectators who don’t consent to the security requirements will be refused admission. The draft begins Thursday night and has sessions Friday night and Saturday afternoon.

All sports events have ramped up security since the Boston Marathon bombings.
