FILE - In this April 25, 2019, file photo, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray embraces NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after the Arizona Cardinals selected Murray in the first round at the NFL football draft in Nashville, Tenn. NFL vice president Troy Vincent has sent a letter to several prospects inviting them to participate “live” in the NFL draft in three weeks. In recent drafts, first-round selections were announced by Commissioner Goodell. Then followed hugs involving players and Goodell — some of them comical — and photo sessions with the players wearing team ball caps or even showing off team jerseys. This year, with all public events at the planned site of Las Vegas canceled and the draft set to proceed remotely, players will likely be at their homes when their names are called.
