The Washington Redskins are inviting fans to join their virtual draft experience from April 23-25, which includes a virtual party in lieu of the standard in-person event.
The decision to move to this format is in accordance with social distancing guidelines, as it will allow fans to join the draft experience while staying safe at home.
We are keeping the party going.. but we are going VIRTUAL. Join us LIVE from Thursday to Saturday for our 2020 Virtual Draft Experience presented by @7eleven.— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) April 6, 2020

The Redskins virtual experience will feature live draft coverage and analysis on the first two days of the NFL Draft, leading up to the draft party on the third day.
The draft party on April 25 will be streamed on the Redskins’ social media channels and will include interviews with coaches, players and celebrity fans. There will also be fan giveaways.
“We hope the NFL Draft will be a source of joy and excitement for fans who welcome some distraction during these extremely challenging times,” said head coach Ron Rivera. “The Virtual Draft Party is meant to be a celebration that will create a sense of unity for Redskins fans as we continue this fight together, while understanding we have a responsibility to do the right thing by not celebrating together physically.”
Some of the special guests due to make an appearance are Rivera, Redskins VP of player personnel Kyle Smith, and quarterback Dwaye Haskins.
Registration is free for all fans at Redskins.com/VirtualDraft.
