Saturday Tradition NFL Draft Central: Stories, news and notes about the B1G heading into the 2020 Draft
The 2020 NFL Draft might be one of the most-anticipated in history. With sports currently on the back burner due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event is one of the few live sporting activities fans have been able to witness in over a month.
First-round NFL Draft action gets underway on Thursday at 8 p.m., with coverage on ESPN and NFL Network. Several B1G players are expected to be taken in the first round of this year’s draft, with over 50 others anticipated to be either picked or considered in the following six rounds. It should be fun.
