Art Rooney II: Draft Room Won’t Have ‘Full Contingent’ Of Personnel This Year Due To Social Distancing

While the NFL has yet to make any sort of announcements, previous reports have indicated that the league has been resigned to the fact that the 2020 NFL Draft will not be held in any way in the manner it was originally planned. In fact, it is reportedly no longer planned to take place in Las Vegas, but rather in a studio setting.

This is, of course, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the necessary precautions being enacted by the government, including social distancing policies. They have recommended that gatherings of more than 10 people be avoided when at all possible.
