The 2020 NFL Draft was going to be one with no precedence come April, with the forbidden city of Las Vegas hosting the event in celebration of the Raiders transplanting to the dessert.
Now, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, it may be unprecedented for a whole new set of reasons.
It was announced late last month that the draft would still take place in Vegas, but be done without fans in attendance. With the virus spreading and the death count rising, according to Adam Schefter, the league is preparing for a virtual draft that will take place from home.
High-level officials from multiple NFL teams are now preparing to do the April 23-25 draft virtually, from home, away from their team facilities, league sources tell ESPN. Awaiting final decision from NFL on an unprecedented draft.
