Looks like the NFL is a bit jealous of all the hype surrounding the NBA’s draft lottery.
Whoever runs the NFL’s official, blue-checked NFL draft account on Twitter.
“Hey, NFL, we want a draft lottery, too,” the league’s draft account tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.
Hey, NFL, we want a draft lottery, too.

Gil Brandt of NFL.com took things a step farther, producing a list of what the top 14 picks in the 2019 NFL draft would have been, if the NFL had a draft lottery like the 2019 NBA draft lottery.
Of course the same account Retweeted it:

The NFL can’t risk having any of their teams tanking, which is why you’ll never see the NFL implement a draft lottery.
Just imagine players intentionally missing tackles to lose games.
It would be a sh*t show of epic proportions.
