Denver is a finalist to host the NFL Draft. The league says Denver is competing with four other cities to host the draft in 2019 or 2020. Matthew Payne of the Denver Sports Commission says he's optimistic Denver can make a great case for hosting this marquis event. The other finalists are Cleveland-Canton, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Nashville. The NFL will announce the host cities for next year and 2020, during their Spring League Meeting in Atlanta that takes place from May 21-23.
"It's a competitive process, and we're excited to move one step closer to bringing the NFL Draft to Denver," said Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis. "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."
