NFL Draft 2020

NFL draft 2020: Mock Drafts, Big Board, Projections

Like the rest of us, NFL personnel departments have been forced to work remotely, with the league modifying its draft format from the traveling roadshow that was planned for Vegas this year to a virtual experience. There may be some glitches, but the NFL will find a way.

Sports have a way to unite us in difficult times. They provide us an opportunity to escape, even if only briefly, from our problems. Americans in general and sports fans in particular are optimistic. Few things make NFL fans more optimistic about their team than the draft, when an infusion of talent and youth offers hope that our favorite team will take that next step forward.

As we deal with the uncertainty that COVID-19 has created, I look forward to escaping into NFL draft-inspired Super Bowl dreams.
