Dallas Cowboys win hosting duties for 2018 National Football League draft big show

Tyrone Crawford Carson Wentz Eagles

This will mark the first time the National Football League holds its draft in a team's home stadium.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 2018 NFL draft will be held at the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex. This will mark the third location of the draft over the past three years. It drew 250,000 fans for the first draft held outdoors.

Eagles QB Malcom Jenkins wasn't bothered by the news.

Goodell stated "Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event's evolution and grow it even further". By NFL standards, anyway, hosting the event in venues like Radio City Music Hall (capacity 6,000, where it was held from 2004-2014) or the Auditorium Theater at Roosevelt University in Chicago (capacity 3,900, where it spent the two subsequent years) is downright exclusive.

From 1965 to 2014, the draft was held in NY.

A had promoted a petition to keep the draft for one more year, which the league presented as an option before moving to Dallas.

"Props to the people of Philadelphia".

"Wildest, most raucous atmosphere in draft history". Tickets were free, and everybody was welcome-but the additional activities also meant that fans who attended the event could go through the whole experience without really watching anyone get drafted.

Goodell credits Philadelphia with having set up the shot for Dallas.

"We are very excited about the 2018 NFL Draft coming to Dallas".

Philadelphia hosted 1,800 accredited media and generated more than $94 million in economic impact for the city.
