According to Ian Rapoport of, Las Vegas is one of six locations considered finalists to host the 2019 or 2020 NFL Drafts.

Las Vegas being awarded one of the drafts would be major news in itself, being the gambling capital of the country. If it is selected to host the 2020 draft, that will also be the same year the new Las Vegas Raiders stadium is scheduled to be completed.

Business would certainly be booming should it be voted that Las Vegas is the lucky winner to host either draft. We will find out soon enough once the league owners meet in May.

And speaking of drafts, the 2018 NFL Draft will be held at AT&T Stadium, which is home of the Dallas Cowboys. The draft kicks off on April 26.
