For all of you who enjoyed watching the virtual NFL 2020 Draft and seeing coaches and GMs hanging out at their homes, I have some bad news for you.

On Friday, the NFL informed teams that they will be allowed in their draft rooms for the upcoming draft at the end of April. Of course, they will still need to be socially distanced while following the mask protocols, regardless of vaccination status. However, this is a step in the right direction of making the draft normal yet again.

Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get your fix of Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock as they will still have cameras on them.

The NFL also said that eating and drinking will be prohibited in the draft room. By March 26, every team is going to need to submit their draft plan for review and approval by Dr. Allen Sills. In addition, teams will also be permitted to use third-party, offsite facilities with prior approval.
