The production of the NFL Draft will take a different form than the original plans that called for a stage set on the Las Vegas strip.

There will be no gathering of fans due to coronavirus precautions. The draft will go on remotely.

With that being the case, expect a lot of prospects to be sitting at home with family and close friends when they find out their pro destination.

Because of it, there are some wonky bets to be placed, including how many pets appear on camera during the first round, which friends and family members draftees will hug first, and over/unders on how many people will be in the same room.
