NFL draft can serve 'a positive purpose'

Coronavirus: NFL draft to go on as scheduled
The US National Football League (NFL) player draft for the 2020 season will go ahead as scheduled next month but players, fans and media will not be present because of the coronavirus pandemic.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the draft can serve "a very positive purpose for our clubs, our fans, and the country".
The annual event, which allows teams to recruit newly eligible players from the American collegiate system, was attended by 500,000 fans in Nashville last year.
This year's draft will be held from 23-25 April in a television studio, with players interviewed via video conference.
It was due to take place in Las Vegas. The NFL had already canceled all public events.
