The coronavirus pandemic has brought sports in America to a complete halt. Included in that shutdown is preparation for the upcoming NFL Draft.

One of the prospects who missed out on having a pro day and won't be able to visit and work out for teams is former Ohio State offensive lineman Branden Bowen. After a stellar 2019 season, Bowen did not get invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, though he did play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Now, without the typical draft prep, Bowen appears to be going through football withdrawals. We can't blame him either.

"Day 6 of Quarantine: I miss football," Bowen tweeted today. In the tweet, he attached a TikTok video of himself lounging while wearing his Ohio State helmet.

We definitely feel Bowen's pain. It has been rough without football and sports in general.

There are many more important things in this world though. Hopefully everyone is staying safe and obeying regulations as we all try to contain this virus.

The sooner that happens, the sooner we might be able to watch football again.
