Dallas Cowboys wins bid to host 2018 National Football League draft

The 2018 NFL Draft has a home.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport citied sources when he reported Wednesday morning that the draft would be held at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Now that everything is finalized, the city may want to make a few calls to Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney to find out what the secret to a successful draft is. Prior to moving the draft around to different cities, the NFL had held the NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City from 1965 through 2014.

This will be the first time that Dallas has hosted the NFL Draft.

Jerry Jones had his southern fried ass handed to him by a lone protester as the Dallas Cowboys owner walked through a what looked to be a hotel lobby.

In a statement published by NDTV, Ranbir has said, "I've gotten to know Mahira in a personal capacity over the last few months". Now, Mahira Khan has finally spoken out and given an epic response to her haters. "This one incident has taught me a lot".

Dallas should put on quite a show for the draft next year. "We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality".

"Obviously Chicago set the bar for the new draft model and Philadelphia took it to another level in terms of the energy and the site and connection to the crowd".

AT&T Stadium has a capacity of 100,000 people, well short of the 250,000 people who attended the 2017 draft in Philadelphia.

Also, Jones is probably the most powerful person in the NFL.

"When we chose to pursue the draft, we did so with the goal of an economic win for our city and region", says Julie Coker Graham, PHLCVB President and CEO. For as far-reaching and immersive as the Philly draft was, however, who knows how much bigger and better it can get with Jones calling the shots.
