The NFL is planning on holding its draft from April 23-25 despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but the location will be moved from Las Vegas to a studio setting, per Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, as the league looks for alternative ways to host the selection process.

As a result, the tradition of inviting the draft's top prospects to be honored live is no longer an option. However, the NFL wrote to agents and stated that it is "working on a virtual solution that will incorporate prospects in the broadcast from their own locations," per NFL Network'sIan Rapoport.
