The 2018 NFL Draft is in the books, with the latest list of incoming rookies and draft picks officially set. Now, it’s time to begin the early evaluating process of determining how easy their transitions from college to the pros will be. But it is also time to look ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft which will once again feature a talented crop of young players and future stars.
In 2017, the NFL Draft was held outside of the Philadelphia Museum of Art on the Rocky Steps. It marked the first time in league history that the NFL hosted a draft outside. In 2018, the draft was held at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. It was the first time that the draft was held in an NFL stadium and the first time being hosted in the state of Texas.
What does the league have in store for next year?
