The NFL Draft has been a fixture in New York City since 1965, but with the league and Radio City Music Hall not having an agreement in place for the 2015 draft, the Annual Player Selection Meeting may be on the move.

As many as 11 cities have reportedly expressed interest, including Dallas, which because of its magnificent stadium could be a front runner to host the event.

As the NFL continues to try and have marquee events through out the calendar, the league has also discussed the possibility of moving the draft back even further. 

It had been held in mid-to late April since 1980, but was wholly in May for the first time since 1979.

Moving a draft from city to city has been tried in the NBA and NHL. In the Early days of the NBA, the Draft regularly moved around, and from 1992-2001, it was at the home arena of a different team every season.

The NHL Draft has been held at different home arenas since 1984.

A moving draft would allow fans of different teams who might not otherwise have an opportunity to view the draft, and holding it a 100,000+ seat stadium would great a great monetary boon for the NFL.
