ESPN and NFL to Combine For NFL Draft Telecast in Bristol

ESPN and NFL Network will join forces for this year’s NFL draft.

They will produce a broadcast that will air on both networks over all three days. The April 23-25 draft was originally scheduled to be in Las Vegas, but has been moved due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It will now originate from ESPN’s headquarters from Bristol, Connecticut. Draft hosts and a limited number of commentators will be in-studio, but will adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Commissioner Roger Goodell will introduce picks from his home in Bronxville, New York. ABC will air a separate draft broadcast on Thursday and Friday before simulcasting the ESPN/NFL Network feed on Saturday.
