The 2020 NFL Draft will not only finally give us some fresh sports content, it will also help those most in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
The NFL is hosting a virtual fundraiser during all three days of the draft to raise money and provide relief to the many who are suffering, as well as those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The money will specifically go to six charities: Meals on Wheels, United Way, The Salvation Army, American Red Cross, CDC Foundation and Feeding America.
The event is hosted by Rich Eisen and Deion Sanders with special guest Kevin Hart. But they will be joined by many notable figures across the NFL, including the Ravens.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey, defensive lineman (and Walter Payton Man of the Year) Calais Campbell and former Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith will all be part of the virtual event. Mark Ingram will serve as a host on Saturday, between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm.
General Manager Eric DeCosta and Head Coach John Harbaugh are also part of a league-wide donation. All the league's general managers [ADD] agreed to donate $1,000 per pick ($265,000 total), with an even division of $8,000 each. Many NFL head coaches, including Harbaugh, are also jumping in with $8,000 each.
