Nashville is the favorite to land the NFL Draft, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Nashville has emerged as the leading contender to host the 2019 NFL Draft, per league sources. A decision is expected to be announced during the league’s spring meeting May 22-23 in Atlanta.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 10, 2018
Kansas City was named one of finalists to host the draft back in mid-February. The other options other than Nashville and Kansas City are Cleveland (Canton), Denver and Las Vegas.
Even in the unlikely event that Nashville were to lose out on the 2019 NFL Draft, it would be in prime positon to then host the 2020 Draft. But 2019 in Nashville is looking increasingly likely, per league sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 10, 2018
Like Nashville, if Kansas City loses out on hosting the draft in 2019, it will remain an option for 2020.
The NFL Draft took place in New York City from 1965 to 2014. Since then, the draft has been held in Chicago (2015-2016), and Philadelphia (2017). This year’s draft took place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
