A quarantined society unlike anything we’ve seen in modern U.S. history necessitates an NFL draft broadcast unlike anything we’ve seen in U.S. history.
So instead of ESPN and NFL Network serving up dueling draft cablecasts with raucous fans around them in Las Vegas (which was supposed to be the site of this year’s draft), the two networks are combining on — and simulcasting — one draft telecast which an ESPN executive calls the most complicated event he has ever produced.
ESPN and NFL Net will have cameras at the homes of more than 170 people — including a coach or general manager from every NFL team (often both), commissioner Roger Goodell (who will announce picks from his home), 58 draft prospects, all of the on-air talent and even some fans and first responders.
