The biggest recruitment process in world sport could be set for a big change as plans to move the location of the NFL Draft seem to be in place.

The annual event which is traditionally held in the Radio City music hall in New York City will certainly be changing its location in 2015, but will it change its city?

The famous music hall is unavailable for next years draft which begs the question where will the NFL take their off-season spectacle?

League spokesman Brian McCarthy claims that the NFL is looking at Chicago and Los Angeles as well as looking at the idea of remaining in New York for next year.

Destinations like Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center have been speculated but with the New York Knicks, New York Rangers and Brooklyn Nets still set to be in the midst of their respective regular seasons, scheduling the three day event could prove difficult.

Other locations such as Dallas, Houston, Boston, Nashville, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are set to contest a battle to hold the first in a new era of NFL Draft's.

The cities have been asked to provide details of their plans to the NFL by the end of June and then the decision will be down to the league.
