NFL Announces Draft Changes
When Tua Tagovailoa inevitably hears his name announced at the 2020 NFL Draft there will be no fans to cheer for him. The same for Jerry Jeudy when he is selected in the first round. In fact there will be no fans in attendance at the NFL Draft in Las Vegas. The NFL announced the change to the draft format earlier today.
The NFL Draft will still take place from April 23-25 but has cancelled all public events surrounding the draft. The NFL says the event will still be televised. It remains to be seen if the prospects will be invited to the draft to walk across the stage or if other digital arrangements will be made.
The NFL is making changes to its signature off-season event after the CDC recommends cancelling events where more that 50 people are gathered for the next eight weeks. Without fans at the draft, will more prospects be more inclined to stay home and celebrate with their family.
