No Pre-Draft Visits, No Problem; Herbert has Virtual Meeting with Las Vegas Raiders

With the NFL suspending all in-person pre-draft meetings due to Coronavirus, teams have turned to FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom meetings with college prospects instead.

Former Oregon QB had a virtual meeting with the Las Vegas Raiders yesterday. Prior to his meeting with the Raiders, Herbert reportedly met with the Las Angeles Chargers as well.

NFL teams are permitted three calls with players per week, and those sessions cannot run longer than an hour according to the memo sent to teams earlier in March.

The Raiders currently hold the 12th and 19th overall picks in the first round. Herbert is expected to be selected long before the Raiders pick, however Gruden and company are smart to do their due diligence just in case the former Rose Bowl MVP drops to them.
