Is the NFL draft coming to Colorado?
Denver has been named one of five finalists to host the NFL draft in 2019 or 2020, according to the Broncos. The other finalists: Cleveland-Canton, Kansas City, Nashville and Las Vegas. With a nod of appreciation for booming Nashville and league newcomer Las Vegas, the soon-to-be home of the Raiders, Denver should be a no-brainer to host the draft. The winners are expected to be announced in late May.
“It’s a competitive process, and we’re excited to move one step closer to bringing the NFL draft to Denver,'' Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis said in a statement. "Working alongside 'Visit Denver' and the Denver Sports Commission, we’re confident that Denver would be a tremendous host to showcase the draft and the NFL in a great football environment.”
