The Cincinnati Bengals – owners of the first overall pick in tonight’s NFL Draft – are reportedly double and triple checking their dial-up connection to make sure they are prepared to get the pick in remotely.
The COIVD-19 crisis has changed the nature of this year’s draft, and the Bengals want to make sure they don’t screw up getting their pick in, which will likely be LSU QB Joe Burrow.
“Let’s make sure we don’t mess this up,” Bengals executive Mike Brown said. “No one else can be using the internet when we’re doing this. Only one person at a time.”
Just in case, the Bengals are setting up an auto draft. That is reportedly mostly kickers.
