NFL draft may come to Las Vegas in 2022

The NFL’s historic entry into Las Vegas was supposed to kickoff with a grand NFL draft production only Sin City could produce.

But like so many events, the boat rides and waterworks had to be shelved because of the coronavirus crisis and the draft will now be held in a studio over the original dates of April 23-25.

Yet, while it won’t coincide with the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas this year, the gambling and entertainment mecca should get to host the event soon. An NFL official said Tuesday that Las Vegas is in consideration to host the 2022 draft.
