The Redskins will kick off the proceedings on the club’s social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube) starting Thursday, April 23, with live coverage of the first round and analysis. The same applies to rounds two and three Friday, April 24.
For the remaining four rounds Saturday, April 25, the Redskins’ Virtual Draft Experience Presented by 7-Eleven will feature live coverage, exclusive fan giveaways and interviews with coaches and players.
Head coach Ron Rivera, quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins and Kyle Smith, former cornerback Fred Smoot and celebrity fans will take part from the safety of their homes, and “Voice of the Redskins” Larry Michael will host.
Fans can register here, free-of-charge.
Rivera said, “We hope the NFL Draft will be a source of joy and excitement for fans who welcome some distraction during these extremely challenging times. The Virtual Draft Party is meant to be a celebration that will create a sense of unity for Redskins fans as we continue this fight together, while understanding that we have a responsibility to do the right thing by not celebrating together physically.”
7-Eleven senior vice president and chief marketing officer Marissa Jarratt added, “7 Eleven stands committed to providing customers with what they want, when and where they want it. That’s why 7-Eleven is offering Redskins fans craveable food like pizza and wings, beer in participating markets and other items to enjoy during their Virtual Draft Parties. Items are available for pickup in-store or via free, contactless delivery using the promo code FREE4U upon checkout.”
