Roger Goodell will conduct NFL Draft from his basement

Roger Goodell

It’s official: Roger Goodell will conduct the 2020 NFL Draft from his home.

According to Peter King of NBC Sports, the NFL commissioner plans to announce draft picks from his basement as part of the virtual draft.

This is going to be strange to say the very least. Originally it sounded like there might be limited use of a TV studio, but with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, even that isn’t feasible. It means we’ll have Goodell working from home and running one of the NFL’s biggest annual events from the comfort of his basement.

This is going to be par for the course for teams, too, though there is some unhappiness about it. Goodell has no concerns, though, and is pressing on with the show.
