2020 NFL Draft Will Benefit COVID-19 Foundations With Virtual Fundraiser

With the coronavirus pandemic forcing leagues to think outside the box while going about their business, the NFL has decided to really switch it up for the 2020 NFL Draft.

It was announced earlier this week that the selection process and show would officially be virtual this year instead of on the Las Vegas Strip. And on Wednesday it was reported the league will now use it as a fundraiser, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The three-day “Draft-A-Thon” will raise funds for six different foundations that are battling the spread of COVID-19 and assisting those affected by the virus, Schefter tweeted. The charities will be selected by the NFL Foundation.

See a list of the charities benefitting below:

The NFL Draft will begin events on April 23.

Props to the NFL for turning a negative into a positive.
