NFL Draft 2020: 58 Players To Participate in Virtual Draft

The 2020 NFL Draft will rely on technology with a virtual broadcast due to the coronavirus pandemic. Initially scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, the league was forced to shift its plans in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

A total of 58 players will be participating in the draft broadcast with equipment provided by the NFL. Each player will have a camera used to call into the ESPN/NFL Network broadcast, while another camera will be on at all times to capture their reactions.

There is one catch, however, with the league requesting the players limit the size of the crowd at their house to six. If one of the people in the home doesn’t live with the prospect, they are asked to stay six feet away as per the CDC social distancing recommendations.

LSU‘s Joe Burrow, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Oregon’s Justin Herbert, Ohio State pass rusher Chase Young, OSU cornerback Jeff Okudah, Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, and Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons will be among those participating.

The draft takes place April 23-25.
