David Samson said that the NFL does not want to believe that there is a possibility that the draft may need to be ported

Despite recent efforts to the contrary, the NFL is beginning to know that operating as a "business as usual" mentality can only operate for very long. Joint regulators have begun pushing the NFL Draft to be postponed after everything was shut down as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Of course, all the people in those positions can do is suggest the tournament to take action. Meanwhile, those in the tournament office seem more committed to maintaining the integrity of the NFL's prescribed calendar. This is a topic that David Samson presents in the fourth edition of his podcast, "Nothing personal with David Samson."

"They don't want to believe that there is a realistic possibility, a possibility, that their season may have any kind of disruption," Samson said of the NFL.

Samson then went on to explain how this initial announcement from the tournament superintendents was made, the reasoning behind the announcement and how the tournament might respond to this joint proposal. In short, the fact that drafts are multi-million dollar decisions that GMs actually only have one shot is probably most relevant to why they want the draft to be delayed.
