The NFL draft is only 17 days away on April 23, and it won’t look like any other draft in history.
For instance, ESPN and NFL Network may hook up for the coverage.
The operation would reportedly run from ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut as studios owned by the NFL in California and New Jersey are closed right now. Personalities from each network would take part in the coverage. NBC’s Peter King also reports that there’s expected to be a telethon element to the coverage in order to raise money for causes related to the fight against COVID-19.
Plans for separate coverage on ABC are not expected to be affected by a decision to have the combined show on ESPN.
