Report: 2018 NFL Draft is heading to Dallas

The NFL has managed to turn the draft into a road show.

So it stands to reason that the league’s showman-king wants in on the action.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the league is sending the 2018 NFL Draft to Dallas (technically Arlington), where the Cowboys will host at AT&T Stadium.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made his interest in hosting the event known early on, and it seemed like an obvious fit for a thing that keeps growing, a show that has long since overtaken the substance of what’s happening on the stage.

This year’s draft was in Philadelphia, after a two-year run in Chicago.

  1. Much like how this season has been played out so far, and comparing it to their respective teams, they won’t pass Philly in terms of quality. Dallas hosting the draft will be like their 2-3 record, just like Philly hosting the draft is like their 5-1 record.

  2. It’s going to be in Dallas in 2018 so there will be 100,000 rabid NFL fans there that said,”I’m done with the NFL.” every week for nearly a year in attendance.

  3. Always fun watching Goodell get loudly booed in a new city. Unless it’s someone else next year? Only if the league wants to keep billions of dollars, I suppose.

  4. Stupid. Philly deserved it for at least 1 more year. But I shouldn’t be surprised… The NFL gives Dallas all the attention all the time anyways.

  5. Of course it is

    Everybody knows the league is ran by Richardson, Jones and Kraft While Ole’ Rog is the front man that takes the arrows from the media and fans

    My only question was what took so long for the draft to reach Jeruh’s world?

  6. They should have it at the Fort Worth stock yard. Because there isn’t much difference between picking cattle and football players. The cream of the crop become steak and the rest become hamburger.

  7. I asked this before, is this all going to be money in Jerrah’s pocket.
    The NFL draft is ran by the NFL, not the team in the host city. The Giants/ Jets didn’t run it in New York & neither the Bears nor Eagles ran it in their cities & none directly profited off it. Since it is inside Jerrah’s stadium, will HE profit off of parking, concessions, merchandise, etc sold inside his place?
    Will the NFL be hosting it inside AT&T stadium, or will Jerrah be hosting it, with the NFL running it?

    Or is this just a payoff so the NFL can suspend his RB????

    The draft should only be held in cities that can not host super bowls.

    ————–

    Agreed completely. Half the NFL cannot host a Super Bowl. Now the NFL is taking the draft away too. Cater to your favorites NFL. Stupidity. Philadelphia has the whole set in storage. Guess its time to scrap that garbage.

  9. Why anyone would go to or watch the draft is beyond me. Watching paint dry is more exciting. Look online briefly a couple times and you get the whole thing in the space of a couple minutes.

  10. get ready for Philadelphia tears and whining.. I hate that its going to Dallas next but I like the idea of it bouncing around give all fans a chance to experience it

    Your team has never won a Super Bowl and you’re talking smack on a team that’s won five? lol

  12. How much did the taxpayers of Dallas have to pay for the privilege of hosting the NFL draft? This is a glorified convention which will be given to free to the NFL.

    When are you going to get out of the past ?? it has been 20+ years since you have even sniffed one. its 2017 not the 90s

    I’m 35, so I don’t care about their ancient SBs. They were before I really cared about football. Did you even get to witness them? Seriously, it is old news and that is a old and played out comeback. Time to step into the present and stop living in ancient history. Do you know that when cars are 25 years old (certain cars anyway) are considered classics? The others are just considered trash or junk. It is damn near 25 years from the Cowboys last SB. It is time to hang it up. What does their ancient SBs have anything to do with current year anyway? Such a worn out comeback that you honestly think a SB won 22 years ago somehow is supposed to be an effective retort to records being talked about this year and it is supposed to suppress any bashing. LOL!

    I don’t care what it it. The only thing that matters is a championship. A week 6 record is meaningless.

  16. They should award the draft to cities that don’t have franchises. Lots of cities could do it – pretty much any decent sized city would have a convention center and adequate hotel rooms and imagine the great PR for bringing an ‘authentic NFL event’ to fans that may never have a chance to attend one any other way.
