We said we would update with any news coming out on the 2020 NFL offseason and NFL Draft and we have our first big news.
The NFL has decided to cancel all in person NFL Draft visits for the 2020 NFL Draft.
NFL has cancelled all college player visits either to the facility or to the school, per source. Only online communication, indefinitely.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2020
That means all draft visits will occur via telecommunications and that in-person visits will be limited until further notice.
This is an unprecedented step and the ramifications are something to watch unfold.
Will this in turn delay the 2020 NFL Draft? What is going to happen with the NFL free agency period and will that delay physicals and therefore contract signings?
It’s a huge turn of events as the President of the United States has declared a national emergency because of Coronavirus.
Obviously at this time the NFL Draft, free agency and those things are less important, but we’ll continue to cover football and give you information as it becomes more available.
