The 2020 NFL Draft is close and I for one welcome the fact that it will go on as planned (sans the fans). In this day and age of Coronavirus putting our lives on pause, it will bring a shred of normalcy to this otherwise very weird year.
The 2020 NFL Draft was scheduled to take place on the strip in Las Vegas. However due to the COVID-19 virus, plans had to change.
Statement from NFL:
“This decision reflects our foremost priority — the health and safety of all fans and citizens,” Goodell in a statement. “While this outcome is disappointing both to the NFL and to the Las Vegas community, we look forward to partnering with the Raiders, the City of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for a future NFL Draft as well as evaluating opportunities for other major NFL events in Las Vegas in the future, including the Super Bowl.”
