It is finally time. The 2020 NFL Draft is here. The first round of picks, with 32 prospects being selected, will take place later tonight. The second- and third-rounds will be held on Friday night, then the remaining rounds, four through seven, will be held on Saturday. This year’s Draft will be unlike any other we have seen, with the entire process being “virtual.”

Unlike in the past, the league will not congregate in one location with representatives from the league office, all 32 teams, and several of the top prospects all in one place. With the coronavirus/COVID-19 restrictions spread across the country, the league will instead do the entire Draft via videoconferencing. There will not be prospects walking out on stage and leaping on commissioner Roger Goodell. There will not be a crowd of fans cheering and booing throughout the night. This year’s Draft will, instead, include Goodell announcing each pick from his home, while the owners, executives, and coaches for each team are all in their own respective homes.

Of course, fans at home will continue to watch. The Draft will still be televised, though this year the NFL Network and ESPN will be teaming up to air the process with one television crew, rather than two separate groups. How can you watch and what do you need to know? Glad you asked...
