On Monday, the NFL announced that its college draft, scheduled for April 23 to 25 in Las Vegas, will be televised as planned, although there will be no public events surrounding the selection of players due to coronavirus concerns. Pro Football Talk reports that the league is looking at "innovative options" for how to present the draft and will announce further plans in the future. Meanwhile, ESPN and USA Today are reporting that June seems like the likeliest month for the NBA's return and the start of the Major League Baseball season.
