It was one of the more odd moments in what is one of the more odd NFL Draft nights you’re ever going to see.

The New York Giants held the fourth overall pick on Thursday night. So Giants General Manager David Gettleman, who is running the team’s draft from an office in his basement, got some early camera time.

However, soon after the Giants drafted Georgia offensive tackle Anthony Thomas, ESPN showed a shot of Gettleman putting a mask on.

But why? Isn’t he at home by himself? Why wear a mask?

The internet had questions.

Turns out, there’s actually a good explanation.

So, while some may question Gettleman’s draft picks, his decisions regarding his health appear to be spot on.
