Traditionally the NFL draft is held in New York City. Well, the NFL is looking to change that for the 2015 draft. In fact, they’ve already narrowed down three cities as possible host cities: Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. While these are the main three cities, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledges that other cities are still open for consideration.
“We’re looking at the idea of that we move out of Radio City. We’re looking at the potential of moving out of New York,” Goodell said. “Radio City’s been a great place for us but there’s a lot of cities that are interested in having us in the future and we’re looking at that. The two most aggressive probably are Chicago and Los Angeles but we’ve heard from a few more mayors also.”
The NFL is also looking to expand the draft to four days, either either April 22-25 or April 29-May 2.
As a huge NFL fan, I’m all in. In fact, I think it’s a great idea to allow different cities to host the NFL draft. Each city could bring its own flavor to the draft, and it would held drive fans and increase the fan base in the local cities.
