The NFL decided not to hold an additional draft, the annual selection process for potential clients who have lost their ability to speak in the upcoming season of College at that time, since the draft of April, in the year 2020. The decision comes amid fears that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may limit or shutter College football this year.
NFL network Tom Pelissero first reported the news.
While the NFL has not officially offered an explanation does not hold additional project of the year — in contrast to the standard of the project, it never goes in the face and does not create health and safety risks associated with the possibility of the abolition of the College football season seems likely to have played a role. If not for the decision of the League, a wave of prospects could be used to determine eligibility for additional project, creating tensions between the usually allied interests of the professional and collegiate games.
Although the project generates much less fanfare than the standard NFL draft that was held earlier in the offseason, as a rule, produces multiple picks every year. Teams can effectively Express players selected in the draft next year for players in an additional project with high performance consolidation prospects in question.

Their other options include defenders Jamal Williams (second round, 1998), defender Lee Williams (first round, 1984), defender Steve Smith (second round, 1984), wide receiver Clarence Collins (third round, 1984), and wide receiver Billy Mullins (second round, 1980).
