Thoughts on the virtual NFL Draft

Charlie Abt

The NFL will have a very weird draft this, almost like a fantasy draft, as all teams and their executives will be drafting from home this year. As a result of this strange draft, which was forced to be like this due to the coronavirus, many teams will likely “miss” on some of their draft picks, meaning they will draft players who would be busts, and if they had been able to get more information on them, then maybe they wouldn’t have drafted them. There will also likely be many fewer trades this year due to the inevitable communication issues that will occur.

I think that the NFL should have pushed by the draft by one month and gone from there, and if the public health crisis still arose, then they should have done the virtual draft. The virtual draft could work out just fine, but I’m betting on it being one the worst drafts in history with many players being picked way too high and many good players falling.
