The NFL draft won’t be stopped by coronavirus.

According to Ian Rapoport, the league is still planning on holding the draft in Las Vegas as planned, but backup plans are being formed if needed because of coronavirus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

As of this moment, the plan is the draft to move forward like it would any other year. You can watch Rapoport’s full report below.

Well, at least there’s some good news in the sports world. It really does seem like Rome has been burning over the past few days.

It’s been nothing but bad news in the world of sports since Wednesday night thanks to coronavirus. At least the NFL isn’t back down just yet.

Of course, if plans must be altered out of an abundance of caution, then I’m sure that’s what the league will do.

Hopefully, that doesn’t turn out to be the case and we can watch the NFL draft in Las Vegas.
