NFL draft will be “fully virtual” - club personnel will draft individually from home

Recommended Posts

So tell all these GM's to move to Texas for a couple of weeks... Is AT&T Stadium big enough to spread out everyone so they could actually walk up to the podium in a hazmat suit??

 

Use luxury boxes to house each of the teams 'war room'... Come on NFL...

Better yet how about the Vikings crew the year they missed their pick.

Beane should set a cool background when making his pick, like the flying toasters or 3D pipes

So do we at work (my job is to monitor systems and still do it from home now) and there are failures.   Every state "stay at home" restrictions have holes in it.

 

Of course there is and I will bet that the NFL is going to minimize the risk as much as possible.

I'll take the draft this way instead of cancelling it at this point.

 

I'm quite sure they will do a better job than Iowa with the caucuses.

They should just ask Sal Capaccio, he always seems to have a great set up. Half the time I always thought he was in the studio.

Any GMs with teenage kids? They will have to tell them to stay off YouTube and Xbox Live so it doesn't slow down their internet connection. 🙂


IIRC from some personal profiles, Beane and his wife have a few approaching or in their teens. Free staff / IT workers. 👍🏼

Part of the NFL Memo on the Virtual Draft.

 

"Accordingly, all clubs should dedicate their personnel and technology resources toward preparing for a fully virtual Draft, with personnel in separate locations. Our staff in Events, Football Operations, Information Technology and the Management Council will be in contact with each Club and remains fully available to answer questions or assist in your preparations. Our understanding is that many clubs are already well advanced in preparing for a virtual Draft and we are confident that all clubs can take the necessary steps to make the 2020 Draft a successful event.

We just got off a family Zoom with my wife's mother and relatives.  One aunt/uncle couldn't figure out how to take themselves off mute the entire call.

A few years ago, our FF draft had 1/2 the folks drafting online. I drafted Alvin Kamara, only to have the guy before me call in to say he wanted Kamara but his 2 yr. old daughter grabbed the mouse and made a pick by mistake. Luckily we're all friends and let him change his pick. That would not fly on NFL draft day. NO KIDS ALLOWED IN THE MAN CAVE!

There will be a team which does not get a pick in time.  Doubt they will get a mulligan.
