NFL Draft

NFL Draft will go on, just not live and maybe not even in Vegas

The NFL will not change their event. According to this press release the NFL and their Draft will continue to happen on April 23-25!

The NFL announced Monday that it will no longer hold the April 23-25 draft in Las Vegas because of the coronavirus crisis. The draft will go on, but not in a public manner.

The league said Las Vegas will host the event in the future. As the host team, Raiders’ owner Mark Davis released this statement:

After careful consideration, the Las Vegas Raiders, the NFL, the NFLPA and the LVCVA have decided to cancel the 2020 Las Vegas NFL Draft celebration. Health and safety has always been our top priority, so despite it being a major disappointment, this was the right decision. I would like to thank Governor Sisolak and the LVCVA for all of the passion they put into creating an event that would have been second to none. Although Las Vegas lost this chance to shine, there will be many more opportunities to show the world just what Las Vegas is made of. Whether it be the Draft, the Pro Bowl or the Super Bowl, the Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World is ready!
