The NFL draft is packing its bags and moving. Exactly where hasn't been determined yet but it is down to two locations. Chicago or Los Angeles.

This would mark the first time the Draft hasn't been held in New York since 1965. That's a pretty big blow to New York. First they lose Sanchez and now this? That's just adding salt to the wound.

The change was most likely made due to the fact that Radio City Music Hall isn't available in the months of April and May, leading the league to look elsewhere.

Of the two locations Los Angeles is the most intriguing of the two. The league has been wanting to get back into L.A. for a long time now but funding for a stadium and finding a team to relocate have been issues that have yet to be overcome. By moving the draft there, it allows them to get their foot in the door and test the waters on how well the city would support the NFL.
