NFL Draft To Be Hosted At AT&T Stadium

Tyrone Crawford Carson Wentz Eagles

Other notable draft-eligible prospects this season include Texas linebacker Malik Jefferson, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State receiver James Washington, TCU linebacker Travin Howard and Texas Tech linebacker Dakota Allen.

Philadelphia tried to lure the draft back to the same location in 2018, but the league instead opted to continue moving the event around the country.

Dallas, and the surrounding area, is the third city to be chosen after the Draft's longtime stay in New York City.

"We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality", he added.

In an announcement Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will likely greet as a happy distraction from the ongoing legal saga of Ezekiel Elliott and Jones' own controversial ideas about workplace decorum during the national anthem, the NFL today revealed that its 2018 draft will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. It drew 250,000 fans for the first draft held outdoors. It was the most-watched cable program of the week and the most-watched sports event of the week on both broadcast and cable networks. The three-day event will again be televised live by ESPN. As part of the even fans will also get to experience a free festival on the plazas directly outside of the stadium. Rounds 2 and 3 will be Friday, April 27, and Rounds 4-7 will close out the draft Saturday, April 28.

Representatives from more than a dozen teams were reported to have gone to Philadelphia to scout the 2017 Draft to potentially submit a bid. From 2006-2014, it was at Radio City Music Hall in NY.
