The NFL has yet to decide whether to keep the draft in May and in New York. And like most decisions destined to linger and linger and linger, a group has been formed to make recommendations.
Via Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the a committee will take up the question of the date and location of the 2015 NFL draft.
“There’s a working committee being formed on that,” Giants co-owner John Mara said at Tuesday’s league meeting in Atlanta. “One of the issues is where is it going to be next year, and that has yet to be determined. And there are a lot of factors that go into that, including Radio City’s availability and some other issues, too.”
Count Mara among the many who would like to ditch May and return to April.
“If I were king of the world, I’d put it right back to where it was,” Mara said, via Maske. “But that’s probably not realistic. I certainly don’t think it ought to be on Mother’s Day weekend. But we’ll see.”
A compromise could be April 30-May 2, a week after the usual April slot and a week before Mother’s Day weekend. Regardless of timing, location remains a key question — and relocation could be the reality for the draft in 2015.
