2015 NFL Draft Likely To Have April Start, Unlikely To Take Place In New York
If you are one of the many hoping the 2015 NFL Draft is moved back to the month of April, it sounds like you might be in luck.
According to a Thursday tweet by NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, the league is currently looking at dates in the window of April 22-25 and also April 29-May 2 for next year’s draft.

In addition to the draft possibly returning to an April start, there’s a good chance that New York won’t be hosting it. While McCarthy said Thursday that the league is “focusing” on New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles as possible locations for the 2015 draft, sources have told Adam Schefter of ESPN that scheduling issues have made New York City the least likely option of the three cities.
ESPN also reported on Friday that Dallas, Houston, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Boston are other cities that currently being considered as host for the 2015 draft and that a final decision is expected to be made by the end of June.
