NFL Draft Is Coming To Las Vegas in 2022

The NFL will come to the valley for three days, April 28-30, 2022. The Strip was originally set to host the 2020 NFL Draft, but the COVID-19 outbreak forced a cancellation of those plans.  Organizers say they expect some elements from the 2020 plans to carry over to next year's draft. They also believe there could be some new additions inspired by the virtual 2020 draft and the event held in Cleveland last week.
