The 2020 NFL Draft will be presented on ABC, ESPN, NFL Network and ESPN Deportes, April 23-25 — marking the second straight year that The Walt Disney Company and the NFL will work together to show all seven rounds on multiple networks.

The 2020 NFL Draft will feature a #DraftAThon and serve as a three-day fundraiser benefitting six charities that are battling the spread of COVID-19 and delivering relief to millions. The NFL, ESPN and ABC hope the 2020 NFL Draft will bring fans a small, but welcome, diversion in the middle of a difficult and unprecedented time.


  • ESPN and NFL Network combine for one presentation across both networks
  • 2020 NFL Draft to raise funds and support for COVID-19 relief efforts
  • ABC to present all three days for the second straight year, airing in primetime Thursday and Friday
  • Hosts to be primarily based at ESPN's Bristol, Conn. studios; experts will contribute remotely
  • 2020 NFL Draft to be streamed through the NFL App, and the ESPN App

ESPN and NFL Network will combine to offer one presentation on both networks, while ABC will present its own primetime telecasts for rounds 1-3, in addition to simulcasting the ESPN and NFL Network telecast of rounds 4-7.

The 2020 NFL Draft telecasts — originally scheduled to be on-site in Las Vegas — will now originate from ESPN's Bristol, Conn., studios and adhere to proper social distancing guidelines and local workplace rules due to COVID-19. Draft hosts and a limited number of commentators will be in-studio, while analysts, reporters and experts will contribute remotely. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will introduce the picks from his home.
