The top 58 NFL Draft prospects have been given cameras so they can be part of ESPN’s and the NFL Network’s dual nationally televised draft coverage while we all maintain social distancing.   They were also given memos about what they can and cannot wear and what products they can and cannot consume or use during the draft broadcast.  For example, athletes may not be seen consuming Coca Cola because Pepsi is a league sponsor.   Yet, these players have presumably played three or four years of college football for free.  Now they are their own business entity and should be allowed to hawk their own products.

Here's What Players Reportedly Aren't Allowed To Wear During NFL Draft

The 2020 NFL Draft is set to begin a week from tomorrow and it'll be unlike anything we've ever seen. It will be a virtual draft, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announcing picks from his basement in New York. Some 50-plus players will have cameras set up inside of their homes so they can be seen and interviewed after getting selected.
