I think the NFL needs to do something for the small school players. Let me explain. This year, because of the coronavirus, the NFL needs to make it right for the prospects who missed their pro days.

I think the NFL should allow NFL teams to sign 10 additional undrafted free agents, this would allow the teams to review more players and bring in more players who maybe they did not see in their pro day but really liked.

I think this is a fair way to get the players in the door to see if they like the players or not.

Yesterday, Kevin Colbert the Steelers GM stated the NFL should extend the NFL Draft by three rounds, according to Manish Mehta of New York Daily News.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that, in a recent conference call regarding the unprecedented 2020 draft, Colbert suggested three extra rounds to the seven-round process, given the absence of player visits to team facilities, most Pro Day workouts, and private workouts.

This is actually smart. I think every team should be allowed to sign more free agents because it will give them a fair shot and honestly help out area scouts. Area scouts would be able to bring in certain players they had high on their list as UDFA types to get a better look at them.

What do you think? Would it hurt the NFL to expand their rosters to 100 for this year only? Just to fight back against the coronavirus? What do you think? That would add an additional 320 prospects to get a shot.
