Save The Date
Barring any last-minute changes, the draft is set to go down tomorrow. It will also be over the course of three days.
The league will be raising funds for six organizations battling the coronavirus pandemic that caused the NFL to cancel all draft events in Las Vegas. Instead, the April 23-25 proceedings will be done remotely and virtually. The Draft-A-Thon will be livestreamed on NFL social and digital platforms and featured in live draft coverage on ABC, ESPN, NFL Network and ESPN Deportes. Donations now can be made at NFL.com/RELIEF.
