We’re only hours away from the 2020 NFL Draft, which will feature Kirk Herbstreit and the College GameDay cast doing analysis on ABC.
Ahead of the big event, Herbstreit is giving us a preview of what to expect tonight. He took to Twitter this morning and revealed that the ABC broadcast of the event will focus on the players and their stories.
Herbstreit said that his broadcast will have “More of a College GameDay feel” and less analysis on team needs. He expressed his excitement at being a part of it once again.
The 2020 NFL Draft will be unlike in any other that this generation has experienced. It will be the first time in decades that there won’t be a big stage or the booing of draft picks.
Really excited to be a part of the @NFLDraft coverage tonight on ABC! Our show will be focused more on the players themselves & their stories not necessarily about what the @NFL teams needs are-More of a @CollegeGameDay feel-So tonight 8pm ABC for the draft-hope you can join us!

The coronavirus pandemic has forced ESPN and most networks as a whole to completely change the way they do programming.
Fortunately for all of us, the NFL Draft is brimming with amazing prospects and even more incredible stories.
There should be no shortage of entertaining content tonight, even if we don’t get to indulge in all of the traditions.
The 2020 NFL Draft begins at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network.
What are you looking forward to at the NFL Draft tonight?
