     In this segment, Paul talks on the hotline with Ray Fittipaldo from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. They preview the NFL Draft and focus on some of the big names they expect to see drafted in the early rounds. Paul and Fittipaldo also look at the Steelers and some of the teams weak points, and who they believe could be a good fit for the organization. In this interview, they also look at how COVID-19 and the restrictions it's causing will change the way teams do business. They look at the idea of expanding rosters with more practice squad players because it might become a necessary requirement if training camps are cut short. Paul believes the league needs to allow roster relief in order to keep the quality of play at it's highest. Paul and Fittipaldo also break down the draft being online and some of the challenges that could arise from doing it this way, and the concerns that team management has about a virtual draft.
