Roger Goodell: NFL Draft Could Move To Chicago Or Los Angeles In 2015


May 5, 2014

New York Jets fans might have to travel a little farther to boo their team’s draft picks next year.

The 2015 NFL draft could be held in a location other than New York for the first time in nearly 50 years, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told NFL Media’s Rich Eisen on Monday.

The draft has been held at Radio City Music Hall in New York since 2006 and is the site of this year’s draft, which begins Thursday.

Prior to 2006, the draft took place at a number of different New York hotels and conference venues, including the Theater at Madison Square Garden, which hosted the event from 1995 to 2004.

The last NFL draft outside of the Big Apple was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Chicago in 1964.

Goodell also told Eisen that changes to the draft could extend beyond a new location.

The current draft format is for three days, with Rounds 2 and 3 both held on the second day of the draft, followed by Rounds 4 through 7 on the third day.
