The 2020 NFL Draft will be fully remote – like, fully remote. 

The league offices sent out a memo on Monday afternoon ordering that team facilities stay fully closed, adding that the NFL draft will be totally remote:

It's not particularly surprising news, as team facilities have been closed for almost a month now in reaction to the current COVID-19 pandemic. There was speculation that the league may allow teams to use their practice facilities – where almost all of their scouting intel is stored – during the two-day draft in late April, but Roger Goodell's memo puts that to rest. 

It's a decision that the Bears and Ryan Pace were preparing for, which the GM touched on during his media availability last week.
