ESPN will be producing two broadcasts of the draft: one with NFL Network and another college football-themed version for ABC. "The production staff will be split into more than one room to abide by social distancing requirements. Instead of as many as 20 people in a room, the number will be limited to seven," reports Ben Strauss. "ESPN vice president of production Seth Markman said the company has been in regular contact with state officials about how to proceed with the draft broadcasts, as well as ESPN’s other programming. ESPN, like most news media outlets, has been deemed an essential business. Per state guidelines, all employees on campus have already begun wearing mouth coverings. ESPN is offering bandannas to employees while it looks into acquiring masks. (On-air commentators are not required to wear mouth coverings.)" ESPN says the NFL also shipped cameras and technical hardware to draft prospects and team officials so they can be interviewed during the broadcasts. “This is the most complicated event that I’ve personally been involved in,” Markman said, “and I’ve been at ESPN for 27 years in June.” ALSO: Stephen Colbert imagines a sports-free ESPN.
