COVID-19 has wrecked many a sporting event this year – but not the NFL Draft 2020! Amazingly, the NFL Draft 2020 took place on the dates for which it was originally scheduled: Thursday 23rd – Saturday 25th April 2020, just without a live audience. You can find the full 2020 NFL Draft order below.

If you're not familiar with the NFL Draft, it's right up there with the Super Bowl in terms of excitement. It's where the top college football players from all over the States are divided up between the NFL teams, offering an insight into the fortunes of those players and franchises over the coming season.

The first of the seven NFL Draft 2020 rounds began on Thursday 23rd April with the Cincinnati Bengals selecting Heisman Trophy-wining quarterback Joe Burrow as the No. 1 pick. Ohio State's defensive end Chase Young joined the Redskins as the second and the Detroit Lions went for cornerback Jeff Okudah at No.3. See the full 2020 NFL Draft Order below.

Pick-kings for 2020, the Miami Dolphins - thanks to some wheeling and dealing, they secured 14 selections, including three picks in round one - bagged maybe a very smart move by choosing Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa at No.5. The quarterback had been looking on for a stellar college season until he dislocated his hip in November, paving the way for Burrow.

The draft continued on Friday 24th April with the second and third rounds. The big surprise on day two was the Philly Eagles picking quarterback Jalen Hurts. Meanwhile, Baltimore made a canny move, injecting fearsome running back JK Dobbins into their offense. 

The twist and turns continued with rounds 4-7 as the Minnesota Vikings added James Lynch and DJ Wonnum, shoring up their defense in style and completing a great pick of rookies that should give them plenty of room under the salary cap. 

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Kansas offensive tackle Hakeem Adeniji in round six, while Baltimore took home the best pick of round seven: Geno Stone. The young playmaker is already being dubbed 'the steal of draft'. 

Over the three days, a total of 255 NFL Draft picks were made by 32 teams, all eager to get their hands on the cream of the college football crop.

Depending on the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 NFL season will begin on 10th September with the Kickoff Game, hosted by defending Super Bowl LIV champions the Kansas City Chiefs. The season will conclude with Super Bowl LV on 7th February 2021, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Sadly, all four London games have been cancelled this year.

But whether you're an NFL fan, college football connoisseur or just thirsty for some sport, keep an eye on the NFL in 2020 to see the hottest picks from the Draft in action. Read on and we'll show you how to live stream the NFL Draft 2020 on your phone, TV and tablet – from anywhere in the world.

Watch the NFL Draft 2020 anywhere in the world using a VPN

We'll look at the TV and live stream options for UK and USA-based NFL fans below, but even after spending all that money on a subscription package, it's highly unlikely you'll be able to use it when you're outside of your home country.

If you're working abroad, stuck in another country or just want to access live NFL Draft 2020 coverage from (almost) anywhere on the planet, it's a good idea to get yourself a VPN. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) can spoof an IP address which is local to the server you’d like to access. That way your TV service provider will think that you’re in the correct country – and allow you to watch the NFL Draft 2020 live.

VPNs are also as useful for banking as they are at trying to watch video content or access websites that people in your location are not supposed to do. They encrypt the data passing between you and the server, so that the information remains private.

So, whether you want to watch live NFL Draft 2020, enjoy another country’s Netflix library or just keep your browsing data private, then a VPN is well worth considering.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service and would recommend the following:

- ExpressVPN

You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

- NordVPN

Which comes in at as little as $2.99 (£2.29) per month and features 24/7 assistance.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the action. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.

You can find a full list of the world's broadcasters with rights to show live NFL here.
