The 2020 NFL Draft was a strange one for every team, including the New England Patriots.
Forced to operate remotely amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Bill Belichick and other team personnel overcame the challenges and ultimately selected a group of players they hope will be difference-makers down the road. The Patriots on Monday shared a behind-the-scenes video that offers a fascinating look at this year’s draft operation.
The highlights, of course, are the phone calls to let players know their dreams just came true.
