Commissioner Roger Goodell has told NFL teams that the draft will go on as originally scheduled next month. In a recent memo, Goodell indicated that the draft will still take place April 23-25, but will be scaled down and "televised in a way that reflects current conditions." The NFL Draft was originally planned as a big outdoor production in Las Vegas, but those plans were scrapped because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Teams have been informed to plan "to conduct draft operations in a location outside of your facility, with a limited number of people present, and with sufficient technology resources to allow you to communicate internally, with other clubs, and with draft headquarters." No specific location or venue for the Draft has been offered by the Commissioner's office. The Draft will once again be televised this year, but no fans or draftee's will be present during the festivities.
In Kansas City, this season the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs will be missing one of their defensive players from last years squad. We'll have the latest on the AFC West franchise from the "Show Me State."
