Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley, a potential first-round pick who had been scheduled to attend the NFL draft in Cleveland, has tested positive for COVID-19 and will stay home.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus said Farley feels fine but will quarantine at home rather than traveling.

“Caleb Farley tested positive for Covid 19 yesterday on a test administered by the NFL,” Rosenhaus said in a text to PFT. “He is totally asymptomatic and feels completely normal. However he won’t be allowed to attend the draft in Cleveland.”

The NFL is testing all players and staff who are scheduled to participate in the live events at the draft. Farley is the first known positive test.

  1. If not for the NFL draft he wouldn’t have been tested because he was asymptomatic but still capable of infecting others . This is just another example of why unvaccinated people will keep the infection rate at an unacceptable level . They feel fine but are actually are unintentionally infecting others not vaccinated who may suffer more severe symptoms .

  2. EVERYONE, just get vaccinated already….
    those who don’t & whine & cry about shutdowns can look in the mirror & complain to their own reflection!!!
    Get a clue….
    IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU!!! IT’S ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE!!!

  3. Why don’t these people just get the vaccine! So now he opted out for health reason and he gets Covid .didnt stop him from having a bad back also..wish him the best but I hope the Jets draw away

    Major red flag. The vaccine has been readily available to anyone for a long time now as well.

    Not a good look.
