The NFL has announced the 2020 NFL Draft will take place almost entirely virtually, with no teams, fans nor members of the general public allowed. There have been few details about how everything has been pieced together over the past few weeks, so we're likely to learn more from the NFL in the near future.

One thing the Miami Dolphins are doing to try and make a tough situation more enjoyable for their fans is by hosting a virtual draft party.

The team will host it on their official team Facebook group for fans. The Dolphins will post and distribute various videos and other forms of content about the draft leading up to the event. Then on April 23, the first day of the draft, they will broadcast Q&A's with the new draft picks as well as live video analysis.

With plenty of picks in this year's draft, the Dolphins and their Facebook page should be pretty busy. It might not be the experience the fans were hoping for during normal circumstances, but given the situation, this is a pretty cool consolation prize.
