NFL Continues To Look For Ways To Tweak Draft
The NFL continues to look for ways to tweak the draft. According to Sports Illustrated, the league is looking into hosting the NFL Draft in multiple cities beginning in 2015.
Though the planning and consideration is only in the preliminary stages, league sources say the NFL has tasked three internal study groups to consider options that include holding the three-day draft in three different NFL cities in the same year, or moving it around to a different NFL city each year, in an attempt to make it an even more accessible and fan-friendly event than it has become at Radio City, its home for the past eight years.
The third study group within the league was formed to consider other sites in New York if the league opts to not move its draft out of the nation's largest market, but can't continue to schedule the event for late April at Radio City due to the venue's plans to re-institute a potentially lucrative "Spring Spectacular'' show to be annually held in the weeks around the Easter holiday.
