Source: Letters were sent out today to 3 cities regarding potential hosting of 2015 NFL Draft, requesting more info: Chicago, LA & New York

LA, Chicago and NY (MSG) are finalists to host 2015 NFL Draft. Why? Radio City informed @NFL that it will NOT be available in April or May

More draft news: The @NFL is focusing on availability for two possible events dates with 3 cities: April 22-25 and April 29-May 2.

The 2 blocks proposed for the 2015 NFL Draft are 4 nights, which the league is considering. April 22-25 & April 29-May 2 are Wed-Saturday

2015 NFL Draft notes: @NFL expects decision later this summer. Site must have ability to host fan festival in adjacent outdoor/indoor space

I think the longer the draft the more opportunity for trades. Will that now be a Wednesday thursday Friday *and* saturday?
4 day draft is getting absolutely freaking ridiculous. Why not make it a whole week?

Not just CHI, LA in play for 2015 Draft; so are DAL, HOU, PIT, PHL, BOS, others. Each to submit info to NFL by mid June; decision late June.
Everything about Goodell's NFL approaches idiotic levels of excess.
