NFL teams rely on tape with virus altering pre-draft routine

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — NFL teams are having to adjust to a new normal as they prepare for the draft in three weeks without being able to visit prospects for in-person evaluations and interviews. The league is responding to the coronavirus pandemic by forbidding teams from hosting prospects or traveling to interview them as they normally do. The pandemic also scuttled many college pro timing days that prospects were hoping to use to make impressions on NFL scouts. The Denver Broncos say teams will have to rely on game film more than ever. But some believe that’s a detriment.
