Roger Goodell threatens discipline for those questioning NFL Draft timing

Roger Goodell

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is laying down the law.

Goodell sent a memo to NFL teams on Thursday informing them that the date of the league’s draft would remain the same: April 23-25. Goodell also said in the memo that teams would have to conduct draft operations at a location away from the team’s facility, which may help level the playing field for teams located in states/cities where there are harsher coronavirus-related lockdown rules.

Also in the memo, Goodell threatened discipline for those who question the timing of the draft.

Some general managers and front offices have wanted the draft postponed because they have not been able to properly prepare for the potentially franchise-altering event as usual.

The way some clubs draft, maybe not overthinking these decisions would actually help them.
