The NFL Draft will have a different feel to it this year in large part because it's going to be virtual. Nonetheless, the show will go on tonight.

Almost everything involving the sports world is on hold due to health concerns around the globe. Fortunately for people at home, they'll get to spend the next three days watching the draft.

Since the draft is virtual this year, the war rooms for each team are vastly different from what they used to be. General managers are now setting up workstations in their own homes. This also means NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to change how he usually does things.

With the first round of the NFL Draft still several hours away, an early look at Goodell's setup for the draft was revealed on Twitter. It's a pretty solid setup when you consider the current situation.

Prospects won't have the opportunity to shake Goodell's hand and celebrate on stage in front of fans this year. However, it doesn't mean the next few days won't be special for all the players that hear their name called.

Another major difference for this year's draft is that Goodell won't have to hear thousands of fans boo him as he walks up on the stage.

The first round begins at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
