Report: Roger Goodell to announce 2020 NFL Draft picks from his basement
Roger Goodell’s plan to announce picks from the 2020 NFL Draft has been discovered.
According to NBC Sports’ Peter King, Goodell is planning to announce the selections of this year’s draft from his basement Bronxville, New York. The NFL commissioner reveals the selections of the first-round of each draft.
FMIA filed in full to ace ed @dombonvissuto … Draft nuggets, an NFL galley I had a lot of fun compiling, plus the usual nonsense.
Happy Easter everyone!
One other thing: Roger Goodell will (as suspected) announce first-round picks standing in his basement in Bronxville, N.Y.

It’ll be a unique format for the NFL Draft, but one that is necessary due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Goodell has previously announced that this year’s draft will be entirely virtual, with coaches and general managers making selections from their own homes, as well.
Team personnel are restricted from congregating in one home or meeting in a team facility during this time. There will also be 58 draft prospects who will be participating in the draft virtually, though the details of what that means have yet to be revealed.
The 2020 NFL Draft is scheduled for April 23-25.
