The 83rd NFL Draft will take place on April 26-28, 2018 at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, marking the first time in history that it will be held at an NFL stadium. The Draft site will encompass the field, stands, and outdoor plazas, creating an all-encompassing atmosphere and enabling more fans than ever before to watch their favorite team’s selections.
NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL made the announcement today at the league’s annual Fall Meeting, following a review of the proposal by the Super Bowl & Major Events Advisory Committee and full ownership. This is the result of a comprehensive examination process over the past several months of plans submitted by various cities to host the 2018 NFL Draft.
“Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event’s evolution and grow it even further,” said Goodell. “We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality.”
Why mess with a good thing? There’s no way they do it better than Philly. Chicago got two years, New York got a thousand. Why not give Philly two? Because Jerry Jones is a big baby with the inferiority complex that is the size of his own state and he just had to wrangle it away, I’m sure thanks to some back room deal with Goodell where he promised to stop saying really dumb things about the anthem protests if he was awarded the draft. Fuck this. And fuck Jerry Jones.
