According to various reports, the NFL's decision-makers are giving serious consideration to moving the 2015 NFL Draft back a further two weeks.

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel cites a number of league sources who, he claims, have revealed the league is looking seriously at the prospect of moving the big day back by one or two weeks.

With NFL fans already upset at Roger Goodell and co's recent decision to move the draft back to may, and away from it's traditional April date, this latest revelation is expecting to be met with derision from fans across the league.

Should the Radio City event be moved to mid-May then it will mean an unprecedented length of time between it and the conclusion of the football season, the Super Bowl.

Draft prospects themselves would surely also prefer an earlier date with destiny rather than having to prolong the suspense for a further two weeks.

The NFL Draft itself has seen a number of alterations in recent times - including the decision to extent the rounds over a number of days - and Commissioner Goodell is also reportedly open to moving the extravaganza away from New York in the future.
