NFL Draft Likely Moving To May, But No Vote To Decide Has Been Taken

BOSTON — The NFL Draft will very likely move to May, according to league sources, but to this point there has been no vote. NFL clubs were told via conference call late last week that the date could be changing, and possibly the start of the league year as well, but the teams were not provided any details and sources said there is nothing imminent in terms of changing the combine or the start of free agency.

The NFL is concerned with a conflict with Radio City Music Hall next year, with the building booked for annual Easter shows and Easter falling on the draft weekend next season. So, in the short term, that explains the imminent change. The NFL has the authority to hold the draft when it wants, without having to negotiate it with the NFLPA.
