Las Vegas was set to hold the NFL Draft this year before the coronavirus pandemic caused the league to cancel public events.
That pushed the NFL to a virtual draft for 2020. During Thursday night’s first round commissioner Roger Goodell, during the Raiders first round selection, announced Las Vegas would get to host the draft in 2022.
That spot was previously open with teams like the Packers bidding to host the annual event. Green Bay will now be left with a bid for 2024, which the team confirmed in a web article earlier this year.
