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 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.
