When is the 2020 NFL Draft and Where Can I Watch It?

Though the coronavirus has taken over our lives for the best part of three months it’s good to see that there are some sporting dates in the diary that will not be affected by the outbreak, such as the 2020 NFL Draft.

Though some of the logistics of the event itself will of course be amended in some way to take into account the guidelines imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, you’ll still be able to enjoy the occasion from your living room screens. Details of when and where to watch are below.

The draft will now take place in an all-virtual environment, which should make for interesting viewing, as the NFL seeks to make the most of the restrictions that have affected much of those across the United States.

Due to the social distancing guidelines players, coaches, front office members and other relevant personnel will remain in their individual places and select players online. 

Interestingly enough NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will then be announcing the draft picks from his basement.

We are also glad to hear that the broadcast will also look to use the opportunity to raise money for key health care workers and towards the COVID-19 relief fund.
