In the history of mankind, there has never...

Cleveland’s 2020 NFL Draft hats are out!

The 2020 NFL Draft hats are officially out and available to purchase from Fanatics (see all of the model hats below if you are interested in purchasing one). Due to the world situation right now, it’s too bad we won’t get to see these hats on a draft prospect in Las Vegas — or on the draft prospects themselves — for who knows how long.
