  • NFL 2020 Supplemental draft could become interesting due to COVID-19

    I've seen a few articles already discussing this possibility. Normally, the supplemental draft is a distant after thought to most fans and NFL executives. About every 5 years, there is a notable exception. But for the most part its not something that elicits a lot of attention from even hardcore fans.

    That could all change for the 2020 season. It is still far too early to know for certain, but the possibility of a shortened or cancelled College football season is currently looming over the NCAA. If that were to be the case, the NFL commissioner may make an allowance for several 3 year players that had planned on returning for their senior years. We could see a supplemental draft that comes close to rivaling the talent available in a conventional draft. It would likely also cannibalize the 2021 NFL draft and leave it as one of the weaker drafts this decade.

    I really hope that doesn’t happen, but maybe we can actually get an OT this time...
