Facilities are opening but the Chiefs and Ravens dominate our 2020 NFL Power Rankings still.
The 2020 NFL season is now less than 100 days from kicking off as a long, interesting offseason is slowly coming to an end. There were several storylines to keep an eye on this offseason as we had a lot of movement with the players as well as some off-field health concerns that changed draft plans and put the start of the year in question.
COVID-19 and the uncertainty around it forced the league to cancel the events surrounding the 2020 NFL Draft. Rather than have fans and players in attendance, the league held the draft virtually — which actually ended up being a fun event. It wasn’t the same for sure as players didn’t get to hug the commissioner on the big stage but we did get a quick glimpse into their personal lives as they were shown at home with loved ones when they got their respective calls.
It was also fun seeing the NFL executives and head coaches at their homes. Some coaches had their kids make an appearance and Mike Vrabel of the Tennessee Titans even apparently had some superheroes in his home (as well as someone answering the call of nature with a door wide open) as he helped his team decide which players they should select. We also learned that Bill Belichick’s kitchen looks exactly the way we all thought it would.
Outside of the draft being virtual, teams have also had to hold meetings this way as well. However, facilities have started to slowly open up as the league tries to navigate through this uncertainty.
With that news, we now look ahead to the coming season and point out how every team stands heading into the campaign with this 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
