The NFL draft typically has been confined to hotel ballrooms and most recently the Madison Square Garden theatre, but draft guru Mel Kiper said he thinks moving the draft around the country might be a good idea.
It is an idea the NBA has implimented in recent years. Over the past five years, in fact, the NBA draft has moved from East Rutherford, N.J. to Charlotte, N.C. to Vancouver to Washington to Minneapolis.
"If I were making the decisions, I would think about rotating the venues," Kiper said. "Maybe give it to the Super Bowl champion or to the team that has the first pick in the draft."
Kiper said he regularly receives calls from fans asking how they can get tickets to watch the draft. Moving the event around would "give as many fans as possible a chance to see what it's like," he said.
