NFL's Virtual Draft Draws Huge Numbers!
The first-ever virtual NFL Draft is setting all kinds of new viewership records.
The NFL says this year's draft where more than 55 million viewers tuned in over three days was the most watched draft ever. The numbers included at least a 32-percent increase each day compared to last year. Three of the top five markets were in Ohio with Columbus checking in at number one with Cleveland right behind at number two and Cincinnati at number five.
That came as the Cincinnati Bengals selected national champion quarterback Joe Burrow with the first overall pick and the Cleveland Browns picked players like Grant Delpit, Burrow's teammate at LSU. The NFL also says more than 100-million-dollars has been raised to help fight COVID-19.
