When the NFL holds it's draft later this month it will look different. It won't have an audience, it won't have players shaking hands with the commissioner, and it won't have boats. (This year;s draft in Las Vegas was to feature players taken to the stage via boat.)

But it will feature athletes in their homes with family.

The league released the names for 58 players Thursday, including eight LSU Tigers who will be featured during the broadcast.

The NFL is coining this year's draft, a Draft-A-Thon as it will also be raising money for healthcare workers and first responders in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Participating LSU Players:
Joe Burrow, QB
K'Lavon Chaisson, LB
Lloyd Cushenberry, G
Grant Delpit, DB
Kristian Fulton, DB
Justin Jefferson, WR
Thaddeus Moss, TE
Patrick Queen, LB
