2015 NFL Draft: More details on potential changes

Cliff Hawkins

The location and schedule for the 2015 NFL Draft are up in the air at this point, but we have some details on what changes might be coming to the event.

It appears that the NFL Draft is on the verge of leaving New York. It has had a very successful stay at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, but Adam Schefter reports that for 2015, other cities are being considered to host the event.

The NHL has had a lot of success with taking its draft on the road each year, and this change seems like it will generate even more interest in the NFL Draft. Not only would more fans get a chance to attend the NFL Draft with it moving around the country each year, but simply bidding to host the event could turn into a big thing as well. It won't be on the same level as bidding to host a Super Bowl or anything like that, but that whole process will likely generate a lot of headlines.

In other 2015 NFL Draft news, it sounds like the league is planning to turn this into a four-day event.

I'm not exactly sure what the setup would look like for a four-day draft, but this is just an unnecessary change in my view. The draft already takes long enough to complete with the current three-day format, and I just don't see the point in making this a four-day affair. Yes, the league would get an extra day of TV coverage, but how many casual fans are really going to still be watching by the fourth day of the draft? This potential change just feels like the NFL being greedy and doing more harm than good.

If it were up to you, how many days and what location would you go with for the 2015 NFL Draft?
