The nfl faces an unusual draft

For many teams in the NFL, the next three days are the most important of the year. The draft is when the best young players come onto the market – managers who make the right choice can change the course of their club for the better over the years.

Without quarterback patrick mahomes, whom the kansas city chiefs selected tenth three years ago, the club probably wouldn’t have won the super bowl in february. The fact that mahomes wasn’t taken until the tenth overall pick and the chicago bears selected mitchell trubisky second overall as their new quarterback shows the challenge: you have to pick the right one.

Exciting will be therefore, who dares to tua tagovailoa. The 22-year-old quarterback could become the next mahomes – but seriously injured his hoof in college in alabama and has not played since then. He tried to prove his fitness with videos. But none of the team doctors could examine him. Because inviting candidates, examining them medically and interviewing them intensively in person – all of this was no longer permitted in the past weeks due to the corona pandemic this year.

Also the situation at the draft itself, which took place on the 24. April (2.00 a.M./prosieben MAXX) starts early with the first of a total of seven rounds spread over three days, is unusual. Last year there were about 600.000 people traveled to nashville – this year the planned gigantic live production in las vegas is cancelled. Working from the home office and doing video interviews for the tv broadcast is the order of the day.

US media report that some IT technicians camp in the driveways of coaches and managers so that they can react immediately in the event of a problem. Seattle seahawks general manager reportedly knocked down two walls to make room for the 25 screens he says he needs. And of course there are emergency generators, several cell phones and landline phones.
