NFL picks Dallas to host the 2018 NFL Draft

QB Dak Prescott

The 2018 NFL Draft will be in Texas.

It will be the first time that North Texas has hosted the draft.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell accounced Wednesday that AT&T Stadium will be the first stadium to host the 2018 NFL Draft. In the spring, the National Football League built a temporary 3,000-seat stadium for the draft on the iconic steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and held a free fan festival across the lawn of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway that attracted 250,000 fans over three days.

The actual NFL Draft Theater will be constructed directly on field with a portion of the stadium open for the public to attend.

The draft, which was held entirely outside in Philly earlier this year, set attendance records with a reported 250,000 attendees. Then the massive offseason event moved to Chicago, Illinois for a two-year stint. 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 draft, which spans three days and includes almost a week of events, will likely split time between the Cowboys' two state-of-the-art facilities. We will hope for some more Cowboys-Eagles feuding at AT&T Stadium next year, and meanwhile bravely scoff at any suggestion that Philadelphia will be making the 32nd pick at the Death Star in 2018. Round 1 will be on April 26, while rounds 2 & 3 will take place on April 27.

The league has adopted the idea of constantly moving the draft after decades of it being held in New York City. The draft concludes with rounds 4-7 on April 28.
