TAMPA, Fla. — The NFL is back, at least for this week with the draft kicking off Thursday night.
Despite other professional sports leagues being sidelined due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NFL decided to allow the draft to take place in April.
For both the teams and the fans, this year’s draft will be noticeably different. Instead of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell shaking hands with the draft picks at the podium, the draft will be held with NFL teams picking the players from their homes.
Where can I watch the draft?
