What if season canceled
#1
Just curious.

If we do the Draft and then the 2020 NFL season gets canceled.

Do we get the 2021 Overall First pick again? Why change the draft order?

My guess is that they would just do a random draw/lottery for 2021 draft order if there was no 2020 NFL season.  Of course that would be interesting as well because if there is no 2020 NFL season there probably would not be a 2020 college football season either. So talent evaluation would be highly limited. Teams would basically be drafting players based on their 2019 season.

I said “______ would never happen” before just about everything that HAS happened due to this stupid virus.

Still, if this isn’t under control by the time football season rolls around, I suspect things will be so dire that we won’t actually care tremendously.

If it’s so bad that the NFL season is cancelled then none of us will be worried about football at that point.

If they did go with the random draft order it would be total BS when the Steelers inevitably win the first overall pick

I mean I see your point but I would be that one guy that would renew season tickets!  #HopingForTheBest

If I lived close enough, with Burrow and all these free agents, I would as well - as long as there was a provisional money back clause.

I had never thought of this question before. After thinking a little (always preferable to a lot) they would almost certainly cancel the college season as well, so would they then grant the players an extra year of eligibility? Basically, everything could be pushed back a year possibly, which means no draft in 2021. Who knows? Great question though.

Well the death rate even amongst the confirm cases is what 3 to 4% and probably a lot lower depending on how many people had it and didn't know or thought it was something else. I would imagine by football season we would probably have developed a relative "herd immunity" as they call it right?

The only thing as far as football season goes that we need to worry about is if we have a second wave going into the winter season, which is a real possibility.

I could easily see a football season, or a truncated football season, being played in front of empty stadiums just for the TV revenue.  The players would need to be tested often so that they wouldn't spread it among themselves, and they'd have to behave well and self quarantine so as to avoid giving it to the entire league, but I could see something like that happening.

It is an odd feeling, one none of us were particularly looking forward to finding out. It greatly depends on what our government does or doesn't do. Right now they apparently only seem to want to throw money at things and lower taxes at the same time. I honestly don't know where the money is going to come from to repay this massive debt. If we're all left in a depression football will feel rather pointless even if it's one of the last things we have to look forward to.
I hope, and I use hope with a bit of reluctance, that this brings us as a nation back together to finally begin thinking of what's actually best for our nation instead of the we vs them mentality we've been seeing in the past several years. Our two party system feels more failed than ever right now and if the super rich walk away even richer while the rest of us have to eat weeds and our pets for dinner I fear we'll be headed for a civil war. The way things are trending I don't feel too optimistic which makes football feel even more frivolous. I was really looking forward to baseball season and that's looking less and less likely. If a depression is what is headed our way I just don't see football stadiums being used for much more than makeshift morgues or shelters to house people or even worse. Look, if we wind up with unemployment hitting around 30% or thereabouts or even worse we're in deep, deep trouble as a nation not to mention the rest of the world.
I don't want to try to make it seem like all gloom and doom because it's possible we do actually come together and start helping each other in ways we haven't been doing much of lately. Families now are feeling panicked and for good cause, but there have been some people really stepping up above and beyond especially in hospitals and such.
I live in an older neighborhood with a lot of elderly people. I'm planning to start knocking on doors soon just to check up on people. Some of them rarely ever step outside even in the best of times and I won't be that shocked to learn several homes have just dead people in them.. Depressing for sure, but I can't sit by idle just waiting for the stench of death to start wafting through the neighborhood. I think about my father, who up until just a few years ago lived alone with his wife. They're both gone now, but there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions as we read these stories of older people terrified to even look at the news much less go out to buy even a loaf of bread. My old man passed away March 11, the very day the WHO declared a pandemic and he was at panic mode even with myself, my wife and my son here to look after him. I can only imagine how terrified a lot of old folks with nobody checking on them are feeling now.

I have seen a doctor "tape" of COVID-19 (insider stuff/Wife), and it is some really scary shit. It is going to take out a lot of people. I put the chance of there being a season at about 5-10%. Honestly,it's going to take a miracle.

Sorry for the buzzkill post, it's usually not my style.

Stay safe

There is no way they would just cancell the whole season, they would more than likely delay it.
Saying that, I bet all this will be over with by May/June and the season will start as normal

Imagine if this year's draft didn't have a 2019 season to evaluate players. Would Joe Burrow even get drafted? Man, how a year changes things!

I think if there's anything, there could be a Supplemental Draft in 2021.
If the NFL doesn't play, college likely isn't going to play either, and as such, most players will have another year remaining on their eligibility. 
I'd expect most would choose to return to college for 2021 while some would choose to enter the Supplemental Draft.
I love mock drafts!
