NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has more than a dozen cities interested in hosting the 2015 draft and hopes to choose a site this summer.
New York, Los Angeles and Chicago were invited this week to make presentations for next spring's draft. But the league stresses that no finalists have been selected and many other cities are in the running.
The draft drew record TV ratings last month. It has been held in New York since 1965, with Radio City Music Hall the venue since 2006. But the Music Hall was not available for the usual late April dates this year and the draft was pushed back to May 8-10.
For the 2015 draft, the NFL is seeking proposals for April 22-25 or April 29-May 2.
