The NFL Draft Returns to ESPN and ABC in 2020
If you are a Miami Dolphins fan and Atlanta Falcons fan like me, this season is pretty much over and you are already looking forward to the 2020 NFL Draft. I am happy to report that next year’s draft will be aired on ABC and ESPN. It will also be shown on the NFL Network.
Over the weekend, ESPN NFL reporter, Adam Shefter, tweeted the following confirming the NFL Draft would be returning to the Disney-owned networks of ABC and ESPN in 2020.
Just in: the 2020 NFL Draft in Las Vegas will once again be broadcast on ABC, ESPN and the NFL Network.

This year, the NFL Draft was also aired on ABC and ESPN. The ratings were higher than in 2018 when the yearly event was broadcast on FOX.
In 2006, the popular Monday Night Football broadcast was moved from ABC to ESPN. Since then, ABC has essentially not aired any NFL events. Football rights are coming up again in 202 and it has been rumored that ABC would love to get back again in the action. Broadcasting another year of the NFL Draft is the best way for ABC to show the NFL that they are serious about getting in the NFL game again.
The 2020 NFL Draft will be held in Las Vegas from Thursday, April 23 to Saturday, April 25.
