LA, Chicago and NY (MSG) are finalists to host 2015 NFL Draft

I think Las Vegas would be a really great place for the Draft. Lots of Hotels, tons to do, can party all the time, large convention centers that could accommodate the Draft, a vacation destination. It just makes sense.

I'm not a real fan of moving the Draft around. But I can see why Goddell is trying to do it. Get more people involved and more fans the opportunity to see it.

Lol this.

Superbowl 55 to be held on the moon.

Super Bowls in the cold and don't hit high, don't hit low, don't hit too hard at all are some of the things we have to thank him for.

Gooddell - ruining football 1 step at a time.

That's a little too much. 3 is the absolute limit. They could really go down to 2. 1 - 3 the first day. The rest 2nd day.

This is just getting dumb.....

3 works alright, 4 is just beyond ridiculous. So what are they going to do, dedicate a whole day apiece for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds? Craziness. Your average fan generally cares about the 1st and 2nd rounds, beyond that interest gradually decreases.

The NFL is really over doing this. Other than my teams picks I dont even watch the draft and I can watch that the next day when somebody posts in youtube.
Exactly when will they make the choice.
LA? WTF? they don't even have a team.

It would be interesting how Goodell would change the current UDFA format to make more money. Your idea of having mecum auction the UDFA would be something Goodell would probably do!

LA looking like a solid front-runner for 2015 NFL Draft.
