Per the Associated Press, NFL Vice President Troy Vincent has sent a letter out to several top prospects in the 2020 draft class. In the letter, Vincent invited the prospects to participate “live” in the NFL Draft in three weeks’ time.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that is affecting both the country and the world, the NFL has had to consider precautions to its annual draft. While the draft is still expected to happen and start on April 23, the event had to be moved from Las Vegas and will now likely be held at remote locations — using internet connectivity to call prospects from their homes.

“We hope that you will start your NFL journey with us as part of the NFL family,” Vincent wrote. “At this time, we are working on the plan for draft. As you can imagine, it is a bit of a moving target with all that is going on.

In the letter, Vincent also asked prospects to not publicize the invitation.

“We are contemplating several options that we will be communicating to you once details are confirmed. We want to ensure that you and your family stay safe while we develop the best way to give you a great experience and highlight your accomplishments as you are drafted into the NFL.”

COVID-19 has already greatly affected other sports leagues like the NBA which had to suspend its season indefinitely. With the number of cases steadily growing in the U.S. on a daily basis, there is fear that the NFL will have to alter or even cancel their upcoming season.
