With Radio City Music Hall finding it hard to fit the NFL Draft into it’s tightly booked schedule, there is talk of the event moving to another city in 2015 where conflicting schedules won’t be an issue.
According to NFL Network host Rich Eisen, the cities of Chicago and Los Angeles are making an aggressive bid to host the NFL Draft next year.
Just spoke to @nflcommish for Tues Night Draft Special — says mayors of Chicago and LA very aggressive in trying to get the 2015 Draft.

This isn’t all that uncommon in other sports as the NBA Draft has changed venues every so often in the past and the NHL Draft is held in a different location every year, albeit it rotation of venues.
It might not be a bad idea for the NFL to consider this course of action as it not only provides more cities with chances to host the event, but it creates a traveling circus of sorts that could make the draft into even more of a spectacle than it already is.
