The NFL Draft is almost here, and like the typical kid on Christmas morning, I am looking forward to what the powers that be in Cleveland will deliver this year.
While the draft is still a huge point of interest, much of the shine is gone because the pandemic halted gatherings of such magnitude. In January, the 2020 host city, Las Vegas, rolled out their blueprint for what would likely be the flashiest draft in NFL history.
The spectacle was set to center around the Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace hotels. The plan, which included transporting the draft picks to the stage via boat and other Vegas-style theatrics, is canceled because of health and safety concerns amid the Coronavirus.
Of course, betting will make it feel like Vegas for some as bettors can bet on almost anything during the NFL draft and a great place to do that would be to click here.
If you want to make a risky bet you can bet that the Bengals don’t pick Joe Burrow, but I wouldn’t advise it!
Aside from the excitement of watching the picks, many fans, myself included, enjoy the tradition of showering NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell with a tremendous chorus of boos worthy of Emperor Caligula. With Goodell set to announce the draft picks from his home, it appeared that the boos would be silent.
Enter Bud Light, in a promotion designed to raise funds for the charitable endeavor NFL-Draft-A-Thon; Bud Light is making it possible for NFL fans to share their boos with Commissioner Goodell. To take part, record yourself, family, friends, and random strangers (from a safe distance) booing Roger Goodell. Post the recording being sure to tag @budlight and add the hashtag #BooTheCommish. From April 23 through April 25, Bud Light will donate one dollar for every posted boo recording to NFL-Draft-A-Thon, up to $500,000.
While this year’s NFL Draft will look very different from any of the past drafts, it is still a life-changing event for the hopeful young men who are eligible and hopefully a game-changer for the teams looking for talent.
