    It wouldn’t be every year. Just this year while sports content is non existent.

    I usually watch the draft till the third round, I don’t think it’s a good idea but I can see how starved sports fans would welcome it.

    Yeah, but you know how those things go. The NFL is always pushing the envelope. They wanted an 18 game season. They want to get a team in Europe. If the ratings were decent at all this year, then I'm fairly certain that they'd try it again next year.

    I don’t think so. Next year they would be competing with live baseball, nba stretch run , hockey stretch run , people being able to go places etc no way they would pull the ratings they’d get.
    They should do something to stretch this out for the fans and for the teams working under unfamiliar conditions. Maybe first round Thursday nite and than 2 rounds a day Friday Saturday Sunday.

    Two rounds a day is definitely more sensible. I'd watch the first two days, but not the 3rd. No way I'd give up 7 nights.

    Under the current circumstances, what else are you going to be doing? Assuming you aren’t essential personnel somewhere that would require you to work and leave the house.

    I still have a lot of work to do from home with two of my jobs, am writing a book that I hope to get to a publisher by summer, and plan to move this summer, so have started going through things and culling them. I have plenty to keep me busy.
