ESPN’s Adam Schefter dug into the NFL for their decision to hold the NFL Draft as scheduled starting on April 23 while “there’s carnage on the streets” amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
Schefter, who’s most known for breaking NFL free agent signings and trades, usually sits on the sidelines during controversy. But on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt Monday night, the ESPN veteran attacked the league for their decision.
“We all want to see the days where we have the distraction of football,” Schefter said. “But OTAs, that’s not happening. The offseason program, that’s not happening. The draft is happening only through the sheer force and determination and lack of foresight frankly. They’re determined to put this on while there’s carnage on the streets.”
