Roger Goodell to announce NFL Draft first-round picks from his basement

2017 NFL Draft

The 2020 NFL Draft is going to be a wild ride nobody’s ever seen before.

The entire draft will be done virtually with coaches, general managers and scouts all working from their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This won’t stop NFL commissioner Roger Goodell from announcing the first-round picks like he always does, but instead of doing it up on a big stage he’ll be in his basement in Bronxville, New York.

Peter King of NBC Sports shared this nugget on Sunday:

The league has 58 players participating in the virtual draft to try and spice up the action. But if this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” broadcast was any indication, it’s going to be a bit weird.
