Packers Apply To Host NFL Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 22, 2016 12:19 pm

The Green Bay Packers have applied to host the NFL draft.

Mark Murphy said that the club has applied to host the event in 2019, 2020 or 2021.

"We think it'd be great for the league to have the draft here and celebrate the smallest market in the NFL," Murphy said.

The draft was held in Chicago for the second consecutive year this spring. The NFL has yet to announce any sites for future drafts. Other cities that have expressed interest in hosting the draft include Atlanta, Chicago, Canton, Dallas, Denver, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
