If you're a sports fan, we're right around 6 or 7 weeks without anything that resembles real sports. So, the NFL draft is going to make us feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

No, it's not going to be the same this year. No hoopla , no concerts beforehand, no green room, no players hugging the commissioner when they come on stage. Of course, due to COVID-19, it's all on-line and via phone. Will it go smoothly, or will there be glitches, or will it even get hacked? We'll see I guess.

For Iowa fans like myself it will be exciting to see where these former Hawkeye football players will be drafted. There are plenty of mock drafts out there with so-called experts making their predictions. For the most part, it's just a bunch of dudes guessing.
