The former Virginia Tech quarterback, who now plays for the 49ers, is accused of raping a young woman in Blacksburg earlier this year.
Prosecutors believe it would be impossible to find an impartial jury next month because of the intense media coverage that's already been given to the case.
They're also concerned Druckenmiller's local popularity will work to his advantage in court.
In their motion-- prosecutors indicated it would be hard to find jurors who weren't Tech football fans or tied to the university in some way.
